Dr Susan Nancarrow from Health Work AHP Workforce is joining NDS to run a three-part series that will explore ways to enhance the retention of allied health professionals using an employee lifecycle approach.

The three sessions will be of particular interest to disability service providers. 

  • Session 1: Six-stage employee-life cycle. To provide an overview of the six-stage employee-life cycle and discuss the importance of considering the whole employee journey, particularly ways to attract and support the right person for your role as a key to workforce retention.
  • Session 2: Staff onboarding and development. Focus on ensuring you and your staff are clear on agreed expectations, and to help you prepare your workers to optimise productivity. Also, the role of staff development to enable growth in an environment where career development opportunities are often limited.
  • Session 3: Staff retention. Will explore strategies to optimise staff retention, including organisational culture, KPIs, feedback strategies, and rewards. Also managing staff separation, including ways that you can use staff separations to improve your own performance as an employer.

It is recommended that participants attend all three workshops, but single workshop registrations are also available.
