Think Tank – How to Write Policies & Procedures

Well written policies and procedures that are implemented and updated effectively have a profound impact on your service. But for many directors developing policies and procedures is an overwhelming and daunting task. It can be hard to know where to begin, what needs to be included, and how they should be structured.
If you feel like you are stumbling around in the dark this Think Tank is for you. Join Steve as he takes you through the policy development process, outlines the policies your service must have in place, and provides helpful tips that will let you craft policies like a pro!

Acknowledgement of Country

At Firefly HR, we acknowledge the traditional owners of the land we work & connect with you from today. As a base, Firefly HR connects from the land of the Garigal or Caregal people, and would like to acknowledge all 29 clan groups of the Eora Nation.

At Firefly HR, we connect – although online, and meet by story sharing, learning, taking on non verbal queues, deconstruct and reconstruct information, and move in non linear directions at times. We use symbols without realising, and link with our own land and community.

This is all interconnected. We are utilising Aboriginal pedagogy with these processes and in our daily work.

We acknowledge the land that we are on today has been the core of all spirituality, language, knowledge, and sacred sites. This knowledge is what us and others need to embrace to ensure a future for our children and our children’s children.

We need to hear, respectfully, and listen.

As a guiding principle to the National Quality Framework that Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures are valued, we are working on building the foundations here and believe a strong, meaningful acknowledgement of country is important.
