Newsletter: AHI Awards, NAIDOC Week and Minimum Wage Increases

Dear All,

Welcome to the July Newsletter from Blooming HR.  The full version can be viewed online here.

This week the team here at BloomingHR is getting ready for the NSW Australasian Housing Institute Awards night, which is taking place this Thursday 6 July in Surry Hills, Sydney.  If you or your team members haven’t yet registered, places are still available via the AHI website. The BloomingHR team will all be there and we look forward to catching up with our past, present and new clients and presenting the awards to the worthy winners.

Keynote speakers in Sydney are now confirmed as Senator The Hon Doug Cameron (Shadow Minister for Housing and Homelessness) and Councillor Phillip Thalis (Independent Councillor at the City of Sydney).  Alongside the keynote speakers, we are very excited to confirm that our Talent Manager, Dolly Miranda, will also be speaking!  Dolly will also be attending the Victoria Awards Reception in Melbourne on 18 July 2017, so if any of our Victorian clients would like to meet with Dolly, please just get in touch.

As proud sponsors of the Awards, we look forward to meeting as many of you as possible on the night.  The Awards are a great opportunity for the sector to showcase social housing success stories, and to celebrate and congratulate those who dedicate their careers to helping the community.  It is also through these events that we can share best practice and raise the profile of our sector, which plays a vital role in so many of our communities.  Good luck to all those nominated and we will see you on 6 July!

In terms of sector news, the Fair Work Commission’s announcement of a 3.3% pay increase is significant and will affect a number of our clients amongst many sectors.  Full details on the increase and industry’s response is covered below.

I hope you enjoy the newsletter.

All the best,


Natalie Carrington
CEO, BloomingHR
