What does good look like across our workforce?

This project presents an opportunity to develop practical resources to help organisations attract, recruit, and manage their staff.

We are working closely with the women’s health, sexual violence, and domestic and family violence sector to develop a sector focussed capability framework. A capability framework clarifies the knowledge and behaviour needed at different levels of the workforce.

At a practical level this project aims to:

  • Provide practical support for organisations to attract, retain and manage their staff.
  • Promote better pathways and informs professional development and learning.
  • Support organisations in meeting demands (such as standards).
  • Support small and large organisations to plan and manage their people and organisations.
  • Create a common language to better support mobility of workers across the sector.

For further background, watch this video for a workforce capability introduction and view the first phase discovery report.
