We envisage an environment where clients move seamlessly between such services, always moving towards more full participation and equality within their community.

This fortnight my blog is focused on some exciting news that the Personnel Group has announced this week. On December 1st, TPG moves into the Allied Health space after acquiring a psychology service, based in Melbourne, called Social Structures.

This is a small step as part of a much bigger plan for TPG as we look to provide a much deeper, more holistic service to our clients and the communities we support.

Our longer-term objective is to offer a high quality, client centred, network of services that can be accessed as needed throughout a person’s lifetime.

TPG currently provides a high quality, high performance, Disability Employment model across Regional NSW, VIC, and the ACT.

We achieve wonderful results for the clients we support but like any service operating in a regional area we constantly experience issues with access to quality assessment and clinical interventions. This lack of access can be a significant inhibitor to clients wanting to work, but not being appropriately treated.

Concurrently many people accessing an Allied Health professional would benefit from employment supports being part of their treatment plan. We envisage an environment where clients move seamlessly between such services, always moving towards more full participation and equality within their community.

Anyone who has been through the ‘coming together’ of two organisations will understand the challenges of melding culture, values, and purpose, and this is something occupying a lot of my thinking at present.

I believe that the thing that makes TPG such an excellent service is the quality of our people and the culture that exists between us.

Any concerns I may have had, immediately disappeared upon working with the Social Structures team and leadership during our transition process. I listened to team members talk about their individual purpose and aspirations and I saw people who were passionate about the same things we are.

People who genuinely care about their clients and want to put them at the centre of the game.

People motivated by quality and care, not profit. They are our kind of people.

I am excited about the additional scope that this move provides our organisation, but more importantly I am excited by taking this step towards a deeper, more comprehensive service to our customers. It gives us another tool in the pursuit of our purpose – creating equality through employment.
