Best Practice in NSW - Workplace Policies. Face-to-Face
Please note that this is paid workshop. All employers - small, medium or large - need to have workplace policies or a Code of Conduct in place to guide staff in their workplace. Good workplace policies help provide clear direction to staff on expected behaviours, conduct and performance requirements.
