This research brief discusses results from a pilot project that aims to inform strategies for increasing economic participation in the Northern Territory (NT). It focuses on the engagement and retention of locally resident 'untapped' labour force groups by local small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs): (a) recent migrants and refugees (those who arrived and settled in 2010-15), (b) people with a disability and (c) people who were aged 50 and over at the time of securing employment.
