Founded in the USA, the International Harvester Company moved operations locally to Geelong in 1937, due to restrictive import tariffs.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the Geelong factory (and a well-dressed gentleman) that supplied Australia with agricultural machinery as well as equipment for World War II.

MAKER STORIES: HIRE CALLING

Ainsley Johnstone and Natalie Firth are young mums and entrepreneurs breaking the mould. Their company, Think Talent, which recently celebrated its two-year anniversary, boasts a unique engagement style shaped by the pair’s experience and the culture they’ve created. Business State sits down with Johnstone and Firth to find out how their leadership style, focus on people and entrepreneurial spirit is satisfying a long-neglected need in the recruitment industry.

What makes the company different is a combination of recruitment expertise and digital marketing nous, taking a strategic approach to helping organisations develop and leverage their employee value propositions to attract top talent. Think Talent is committed to a culture of understanding, flexibility and respect, and is passionate about driving equality in the areas in which it specialises: strategy, finance and growth roles.

The principle of valuing people applies to how Johnstone and Firth manage their team, too. “A good example of that in our business is Jeremy. His wife was going back to work and he was stressed about how to manage that,” says Firth. “He never thought he could be in a place where he could say to someone, ‘I want my wife to go back to work. She’ll be happier. It’s great for our family and our income. What can we do?’ “So we found a way to make it work. He dropped back to four days a week and focused on managing output, not hours. If the output’s there, it’s there. If it’s not, let’s talk about what we need to do.” #MelbMakerStories

For an industry that is all about people, recruitment can be surprisingly cold. But the founders of Melbourne’s fastest growing, female-led recruitment business, Think Talent, are bringing the human element back to human resources. Follow their story at #MelbMakerStories today. @thinktalent

It may not be on everyone’s itinerary when visiting Mt. Dandenong, but St Michael’s Church is a small church with a big history.

Its foundation stone was laid on June 26, 1940 - the day France fell to the Germans and hence is dedicated to the lives lost in the First World War.

On the corner of St Kilda and Commercial Road, Prahran, sits the old Chevron Hotel. Although it has spent its recent life as a nurses’ residence, it rose to fame as the first ‘country club’ hotel in Australia.
So really, any club you’ve visited has the Chev to thank.
