Guided by our principles, we were able to adjust our workforce to meet the needs of our community and provide a safe environment ensuring the wellbeing of our people.
Our employee health and wellbeing focus in FY20 centred on supporting our teams as they helped our patients through COVID-19. We implemented safe work practices for the safety of our people, our clinicians and our patients. At the same time, we brought the spotlight onto employee mental wellbeing with a program designed to cover self-care, staying connected and enhancing our knowledge of mental wellbeing.
We prioritised ‘staying connected’ and opened up communication channels to support our employees, regardless of where they were working.
Our internal working groups are empowered to drive change and challenge traditional thinking to collectively implement new ways of working.
We saw strength in our ability to be innovative and adaptive as we adjusted to new patterns of working.
Our teams identified and implemented improvements that enabled an adjusted operating model focused on delivering best in class services to our patients.
We celebrated the commitment of our people through specialised events such as World Embryology Day and International Nurse Day with collaboration and support of our patients who also shared their gratitude for the work our team do.
We have continued to rollout our reward and recognition program, Cudos, with many of our employees and teams recognised through the year.
We continue to prioritise the engagement of our people through developing our specialised learning and development framework. This framework is designed to continue to improve our employee value proposition and empower our workforce.
