Informal BBQs to promote better communication and team building at CDC depots
In a bid to foster better communication and build on employee relationships, CDC Victoria will be holding casual BBQ sessions at each depot from now till the end of 2014.
Altona Depot was the first stop on the list, with all drivers and staff from the depot invited to mingle, chat and join in the festivities, last Friday, the 24th October 2014.
Group Operations Manager, George Konstantopoulos was head chef at the inaugural BBQ at Altona Depot, allowing him to serve and mingle with drivers, mechanics and other staff, casually.
"The BBQ was an excellent opportunity for us to meet the drivers and staff and really chat about where the business is heading and the various changes that have taken place recently," said George.
"It was also a good opportunity for newly appointed Service Delivery Manager, Ravneet to mingle with his staff and get to know them in a relaxed environment."
Management looks forward to the upcoming Casual BBQ sessions, which will be at the following depots:
- Geelong - Wednesday 5/11, 5 pm
- Oakleigh - Wednesday 12/11, 5 pm
- Ballarat - Tuesday, 18/11, 5 pm
- Sunshine - Wednesday 19/11, 5 pm
- Werribee - Wednesday 26/11, 5 pm
Fresh students tour Sunshine bus depot
CDC Victoria is proud to be able to invest in the development, education and well-being of our youth, through the Western Bulldog's Fresh Program. As part of this ongoing initiative, CDC Victoria opened its doors to fourteen students from the Fresh Program on the 17th September 2014.
Students were taken on a guided tour through the Sunshine Depot, allowing the kids to gain positive exposure and a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in a bus depot.
The tour was led by Sunshine Service Delivery Manager, Peter Duvcevski and his dedicated team who graciously engaged with students, allowing them to learn outside the classroom and find out about the extensive operational and planning requirements of a Metropolitan bus business.
The group visited the bus workshop where vehicles were being repaired, observed training and maintenance facilities and were excited to ride in a bus through the giant bus wash bay. The highlight of the excursion involved a walk through the Paint shop allowing the group to observe the spray painting of a vehicle.
CDC Victoria has also facilitated industry engagement sessions including resume writing, cover letter writing and speed careering over the last few weeks in order to give students a kick start.
We would like to acknowledge the ongoing support of Public Transport Victoria, in particular Stephen Ryan and Graeme Lilley who joined the group on the tour, allowing them to interact with students and gain a better understanding of some of the challenges faced by the students; and experience CDC Victoria's community engagement endeavours.
The Western Bulldog's Fresh Program
The Fresh Program is aimed at educating youth (aged 15-20) who have experienced difficulties with mainstream education. Under the program, young people are offered the opportunity to gain secondary qualifications in a flexible, supportive environment allowing them access to sustainable future options.
