The Department of Education’s Flexible by Design Framework 2020-2023 outlines our commitment to fostering an inclusive and high performing workplace culture that is responsive to current and future needs. Flexible work is a strategic tool for us to deliver high quality service by attracting and retaining capable people and enabling career and service delivery continuity.
In an evolving global environment, it is essential the department becomes increasingly adaptable, innovative and responsive. The framework provides a roadmap toward proactively implementing flexible work across the department, recognising that this will require each of us to play a role.
Proactive conversations about flexible work help to create arrangements that work for the role, the team and the individual. The flexible work arrangements procedure provides details about available options as well as how to make arrangements.
