About Response Group

Our expertise in retention and workforce strategy

Based in Brisbane, Response Group have over 20 years of global experience helping organisations and their people perform more effectively. Most recently, we were engaged by the red meat processing industry (AMPC) to develop a research-based employee retention framework. During this three-year program we worked with over 25 processing plants to analyse their employee data and help drive effective change when it comes to retaining employees. Importantly, we don’t offer band-aid fixes or a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we work with you to create a custom approach, with support and accountability.
