DISABILITY & AGED CARE
No other industry is going through as much change driven by external factors than the disability and aged care sector. The challenge for employers in this industry is demonstrating quality management and governance around its practices, including human resources, in order to qualify for funding. Managing risk and compliance, implementing flexible workforce planning and optimising payroll and HR software (with the ability to integrate with funding sources) are also important.
Essential practices for NDIS-ready organisations in demonstrating capability include human resources strategy, access to training and expertise, record keeping, commitment to performance management and the ability to resolve issues with prompt and professional workplace advice.
Not just workplace relations experts. We also offer payroll, migration and HR tips and expertise under one roof.
