Employee Workshop for Code of Conduct
All state government bodies and local government bodies and other statutory entities are required to have a code in accordance with the Public Sector Management Act 1994 (WA). Many other organisations also choose to have a Code as part of outlining expectations around workplace behaviours. Educating all employees is a natural progression from creating a Code and one that can bring to life the over-arching principles outlined in the Code.
This course is customised to individual clients to create relevant, engaging content that educates their employees in relation to their organisation’s overarching Code of Conduct.
In an engaging, interactive, customised approach, employees are introduced to their organisation’s Code of Conduct through hypothetical scenarios that allow participants to practically understand the workings of their Code and how it applies to everyday life at their workplace. The result is that they leave better informed of their responsibilities, consequences and who they can speak to for information and support.
