BUSINESSES, LETS GET COVID READY!
Wanting to learn more about safe business operations, WHS planning, or wanting more personalised support? VCCI is here to help.
Over the coming weeks VCCI will be offering a range of opportunities for you to get your business COVID ready. Select from the options below, and contact us to book your place.
Get started – have you, or your nominated staff safety officer, attended our basic Safe Business Operations training Workshop? Come along to learn about to prepare your workplace, and your staff, for operating in a COVID world.
Get prepared – A Work Health and Safety Plan (WHS plan) is a requirement for all businesses wishing to operate in any form of lockdown or curfew situation (alert levels 2 and 3). Come to our one-hour intensive workshop to learn how to fill one in, and implement it, based on your business type.
Get checked – make an appointment now for one of our safety officers to perform a site visit and help you make sure you are ticking all boxes on your safe business operations checklist.
For any and all questions and bookings please call Saphy on 27543, or email email@example.com
VCCI works with our Creative Industries Business members
Working in partnership with ILO and UNSECO, VCCI today began its 4 week business strengthening program with business owners from the creative industries, identified by the Vanuatu Cultural Centre.
The program was launched by VCCI General Manager, Astrid Boulekone, and is designed to help musicians, photographers, carvers and handicraft creators to develop their business management skills, and be able to produce their own business plans by the end of the program.
VCCI is busy in Luganville!
Since opening our office in Luganville in December, our very own Candyce Simeon has wasted no time in offering support to the businesses based to our north.
Last week she facilitated 4 workshops – two Start SMART Workshops and two Business Continuity Planning (BCP) Workshops, held at the LDS Mormon Church. A total of 96 participants attended over 2 days, with great feedback from all – ‘I really loved the workshop because it helped me better think through my business idea, where to register my business, and how to ‘get started’.
If you are interested in attending workshops in Luganville please contact Candyce on firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on 5580870.
