WA Health Flexible Work Arrangements Policy
The WA Health Flexible Work Arrangements Policy has been developed in consultation with key stakeholders across Health. The policy was developed in accordance with the WA Health Workforce Policy Development Framework.
WA Health is committed to providing a positive environment with a reputation as an ‘Employer of Choice’. To achieve this, WA Health promotes flexible and responsive work arrangements that assist its employees to balance their work and other life responsibilities. The implementation of flexible work arrangements is designed to contribute to the well-being of both the organisation and its staff.
The policy applies to all persons employed within WA Health, which incorporates the following entities:
- Department of Health
- Metropolitan Health Services
- Peel Health Service
- WA Country Health Service
This is a system wide policy and supersedes all existing policies directly related to flexible work practices and work life balance in WA Health.
It is the responsibility of managers to ensure that all employees have access to a copy of this policy. A copy of the policy can be accessed via Holii at http://intranet.health.wa.gov.au/policies/doh_policy.cfm.
