NAWO Knowledge Share Forums 2020

June 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm AEST

Register Your Nominations
Ensuring flexible working options remain the norm post COVID-19 – retaining best practise

Tuesday 16 June 2020  1 PM – 3 PM (AEST)

NAWO member companies have the option of nominating up to two participants from your business to attend.

Introducing our 2020 Knowledge Share Forums – this is your organisation’s chance to be part of a critical and action orientated discussion.

We recently hosted a webinar with Fortescue Metals Group and South 32 about how this pandemic has moved a mountain by blowing up the myths and propaganda around working from home. What other barriers to flexible work can we break down while minds are open and conversations around the ‘new world of work’ are live?
Please register for this Forum if you would like to learn about how other NAWO member companies are activating flexible work. Participants will be expected to share their experiences and practices with the group.
The objective of this Forum is to identify the actions your organisations have taken to drive flexibility; and what can be done to ensure we leverage the collective wisdom of this network to drive us even further forward.

  • How to facilitate and implement flexible work arrangements beyond the prescriptions set down by the Fair Work Act
  • Hearing stories about successful flexible work arrangements including transition to retirement, job share at all levels and between genders (would be great to hear from a company that has had a man and a women job share a role), flexible rostering, staggered start/finish times and work from anywhere initiatives.
  • Strategies for managing expectations and ensuring fairness in application – including initiatives around job analysis and redesign, principle based decision making and leader support for managing requests.
  • Efficient and effective approaches to managing the administrative requirements set by Fair Work Australia.
  • Insights into how to successfully rollout flexible work policy, including how to ensure stakeholder buy-in, effective communications and how to introduce new approaches to flexible work such as ‘pilots’ or ‘trials’

Who should attend this Forum?
People in positions of influence over process, practice or policy for your organisation such as operational team leaders, middle managers, HR business partners, diversity specialists, or members of a relevant special project team.

Places are limited
These Forums are small, targeted and for those ready to share examples of good practice, keen to learn from others and prepared to turn conversation into action. Two representatives from 10 member companies can attend and registrations are taken on a first come first served basis. Your nominated attendees will need to be prepared to contribute, either with case studies showcasing the work your organisation has been doing OR with well thought through questions and challenges that you are finding it difficult to overcome.

To ensure your organisation has two places at our virtual table please register your nominations now with your nominated colleagues’ names, titles and email address.
