Human Resources and Employment Minister Wendy Freeman has outlined how you can manage a job search after an employee leaves the company.
Ms Freeman has confirmed the Department of Human Resources is currently looking into what happens after an organisation’s HR team leaves the organisation.
She also confirmed the Government would provide an extra $5 million to assist the affected organisations.
The Federal Government will provide an additional $5M for human resource managers who leave the organisationAgency staff in the Federal Government have been told to seek employment after their contracts expire, according to the Employment Minister.
In an email to staff, Ms Freeman said: “As a Government we have a responsibility to provide the best possible services to our workers and they should be well-positioned to manage and plan for future employment opportunities.”
The email also confirmed that $5m will be available to help agencies hire new staff.
The Government will contribute an extra$5 million over four years.
Ms Fraser said the Government is “actively looking at ways we can help our workers navigate this transition”.
The Government has also announced $1.5m in assistance to help affected agencies plan for a transition period.
Ms Newman said the government will provide up to $1,500 to the affected agencies and agencies will receive up to four weeks’ leave of absence from their contract.
Federal Labor’s Federal Employment Minister, Mark Butler, has also confirmed there will be an extra month of leave for affected staff.
A spokesperson for the Labor leader said the Federal government would not be spending more money on staff leave, and was looking at providing $5,000 in funding to help organisations that are facing a change in their HR strategy.
Ms Butler said the Labor Government would “look at how we can best support these organisations to deal with the transition of staff, including training.”
Ms Newman has confirmed there are currently 12 agencies receiving an extra week of leave from their contracts.
Mr Butler said this was “a good start”.
The Federal government will also fund up to three weeks of voluntary leave for agencies that will be affected by a transition.
Federal Government’s human resource policy has been updated to ensure that it remains in line with Federal Government guidelines.
The revised policy has a number of changes, including a requirement that employees of organisations that have more than 100 employees be given at least one month of unpaid leave.
Ms Andrews has been asked to clarify her comments about the government providing $1 million to help employers prepare for a potential shift in staff, as it is a “critical part of the transition”.
“This is the right time to start putting a plan in place for this transition,” Ms Andrews said.
“It will ensure that everyone has the tools and the support they need to continue to grow and thrive in this rapidly changing industry.”
The Minister said the Department would also look at whether agencies can “provide more timely and appropriate support to organisations affected by this transition, and if they can be given the necessary training, training and support to ensure they can move forward in the best way.”
The Government also said the changes to its Human Resources policy would also include an update to the Department’s Human Capital Policy to reflect that Human Capital is “a key focus for the Government”.
This is a significant change from the previous Government, which focused on human resources at the expense of HR.
The changes to the policy come as the Government’s Department of Employment, Workplace Relations and Training has published the Human Capital Strategy, which provides guidance to organisations to ensure their HR departments are up to date on current HR and recruitment policy.
In the document, the Government said it would be looking at how to better support organisations with HR needs, and how they could better prepare for the change to take place.
A number of the changes in the new policy are expected to have a positive impact on the industry, with organisations hoping to attract and retain top talent.
