Ahhh..... Now that is refreshing..... Because these days, within Australian workplaces, there seems to be far too much workplace COMPLIANCE and far too little COMMON SENSE. What organisations are bucking the trend?
Regardless of how we train people, or what policies and procedures we have in place, like most things in life, it's a case of "show me don't tell me". What we see and hear is often what we follow. Management, just like good parenting, requires a positive role model.....
There is a common theme across this workplace compliance series - the best organisations have a robust workplace compliance system in place. One that educates their staff and delivers policies and procedures to help people know what to do if there is a fair work, privacy or health and safety incident in the workplace.
It is the responsibility of everyone to do the right thing when it comes to fair work, privacy and health and safety in the workplace. Not just because we have to by law, but because everybody has the right to be safe at work and to be treated fairly and with respect.
It is impossible for a business to create a workplace culture that is safe, fair and equitable when it routinely misses compliance training and fails to manage the compliance requirements of their new and existing workers. Why is workplace compliance so hard? What is preventing businesses from putting a workplace compliance system in place?
