The report aims to provide a cohesive document about contemporary recruitment and retention of workers in rural Australia in the specified industries. The report is based on current official statistics, government and industry reports and empirical data obtained from the mining and food and beverage sites. It is hoped that the findings of the report may inform organisations in their decision making processes about the attraction and retention of workers. The report and summaries target the following organisations:

• food and beverage companies
• mining companies
• economic community development boards within rural communities
• local governments within rural communities
• government boards, committees, inquiries and departments with a brief for the areas of rural sustainability, skill classification and development, and training
• TAFE, universities and private and private/non-government funded training providers
• industry bodies, associations and councils
• unions
• employer associations
• academics interested in skill shortage, labour markets, human resources and rural communities.
