Congratulations to Mike Hicks and his team at @Outback Steakhouse - Penrith, finalists in Most Inclusive Employer category for the Penrith City Local Business Awards.
Ability Options have had the pleasure of working with Mike for the last 5 years, providing jobseekers that are looking for an opportunity to start their careers in the hospitality industry.
Mike is very active in the local community sponsoring charitable events, sports teams and is a great advocate for inclusion in the work place. Ability Options have recently placed four participants with Outback Steakhouse.
Pictured in a chef’s uniform in the bottom left is Aaron. Aaron is a jobseeker from Penrith who was referred to Mike and has now been working as a kitchen hand at Outback for over 6 months and loving his job. Working at Outback Steakhouse has given Aaron the confidence to get his driver’s licence, a car and he is now working on his long term goals including owning a house and even hoping to start as a chef one day.
Thank you Mike, for being a Changemaker and developing a more inclusive workplace.
