The Integrate Programme was run over five consecutive days in Hamilton at the Sunfruit offices. The programme was designed to assist sole parents, into split shift work at the packhouse, in either the mornings or afternoons. Sunfruit employed each of our participants who completed the Integrate Programme for the 2018 season.
The benefit of these fantastic women working together as a group is that they are there to support each other not only during work but after hours. Over the season the ladies work together to cover each other’s shifts when needed, and they help each other practically with transport, childcare and friendship. Offering parents flexible hours of work is often a win-win. Businesses get workforce flexibility, additional coverage to meet peak demands and capable staff while parents have the opportunity to join the workforce while still maintaining family balance.
