How can you best juggle the demands of flexibility, accountability and delivery?

ABOUT THIS EVENT 

The NSW Government has committed to making all roles flexible in the NSW government sector on the basis of ‘if not, why not’ by 2019.

The positive impact of flexibility on health and wellbeing, staff retention and attraction as an employer of choice is well documented. And we have begun to dispel the idea that value and contribution is derived by physical presence rather than output.  But in this new world of work, what is the best way to manage yourself and your workload and deliver on citizens’ expectations?

This forum will bring together perspectives from across the public and private sectors to explore how you can best make flexibility work.  Speakers will share details of their personal experiences delivering individual, team, customer and business outcomes within flexible working arrangements. 

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

This forum will give you the insights and tools to help manage yourself and your own flexible work practices while remaining accountable and delivering results. It will also help you to ensure that your flexibility supports the delivery of core functions and responsibility.

All IPAA events include purposeful networking which allows you to:

• Build relationships with the speaker/s and fellow guests
• Develop your capabilities 
• Establish connections across the NSW public sector.

HOSTING PARTNER

This event is presented with the support of our partner Bendelta.
