In 2011 Brightwater Care Group in partnership with Juniper – a Uniting Church Community, engaged Fortis Consulting to design and develop a program for fostering cultural competence and engagement across its culturally diverse workforce.
Funded by a Social Innovation Grant, the CCRW program was piloted in 2012-13. It has since assisted in strengthening the skills of workers and their supervisors across a number of facilities.
Using an underpinning emotional intelligence approach, the CCRW program improves relationship building skills to reduce the communication barriers posed by cultural and language differences.
Widely applicable, any organisation with a culturally diverse workforce can benefit from this program. To enhance your results, using qualified, experienced and trained facilitators, the program can improve you to build better working relationships and improve staff engagement.
To ensure its success the CCRW program targets multiple levels within an organisation, comprising 12 training modules aimed at all levels from team members, supervisors, managers to leaders. An organisational guide provides context and practical considerations in getting started.

We invite your organisation to complete the Pulse Survey to receive a free analysis of your organisation’s cultural landscape.
Completing this survey will provide insight into the opportunities and challenges diversity presents to your organisations, and more specifically how you may be able to customise and leverage the successful “Culture Communication and Relationships at Work (CCRW)” program to meet your specific diversity needs.
This survey was developed by Fortis Consulting’s Centre for Excellence Harnessing Workforce Diversity to assist organisations in making the most of their diverse workforces. This important diagnostic tool is helping our clients understand the composition and dynamics of their diverse workforce from staff through to supervisors and leaders.
