Event description

Description

The implementation of the NDIS will disrupt traditional ways of working and the disability sector will have to adapt to new ways of working under NDIS. This includes new ways of employing and managing disability support workers.

This workshop aims to help employers make practical employment decisions that align with their long term strategic objectives. In particular we will look at how to manage the industrial constraints around employing support workers, and best practice HR approaches to managing change and optimising recruitment and retention in a competitive environment.

Topics covered in the workshop include:

  • Overview of industrial arrangements - awards and agreements
  • Strategic objectives for the support workforce
  • Industrial obstacles and options for managing them
  • Options for employing support workers - casual and permanent
  • Change management
  • Recruitment and retention of employees

After completing the workshop, participants will:

  • Be equipped to review their current employment arrangements and identify where change is needed
  • Be able to choose between various options for flexible working arrangements, understanding the pros and cons of each option
  • Be capable of making operational decisions which balance strategic objectives around competitiveness, financial sustainability and effective people management.

Who is it for?

Board members, CEOs, executive managers, senior managers and frontline managers.
