LET’S TALK

Transformation in 8 easy steps! Well, not that easy.

The government isn’t giving away free money here. The EDG may not be a get-rich scheme, but what it can do is help you to refresh and reform your business strategies to keep moving up and ahead. How exactly you do that is up to you. With that in mind, let’s get to step 1!

01 Are you eligible?

Eligible step

Are you eligible?

  • Be in a financially viable position to start and complete the project
  • Make a commitment to improved worker outcomes. This includes wage increments, job creation/redesign, and staff training

If you’ve got that bit down, move on to the next step!
