Workforce Planning for the Disability Sector
These are times of enormous change in the sector. The Covid-19 crisis has been consuming an enormous amount of our time and focus but several organisations are now turning their attention towards the future. In addition we have a new NDIS Capability Framework which is about to be released. SACS Consulting are experts in workforce planning. They have undertaken many workforce planning projects across a range of sectors including disability and related sectors such as aged and health care. Andrew Marty, Psychologist and Managing Director, will take you through the latest evidence on what works in workforce planning. He will also review the new NDIS Capability Framework and explain its possible implications.
National Disability Services (NDS) is partnering with SACS to promote this online workshop as the disability sector has identified workforce planning as one of its biggest business capability challenges. Something made even clearer by the Covid-19 pandemic. NDS is keen to expose the sector to a range of workforce resources and models that help stretch thinking and build capability.

Remote Leadership Masterclass
The Covid-19 crisis has thrust remote leadership firmly into the spotlight as one of the most important issues in human leadership today. This is likely to be a key issue for the foreseeable future as many organisations have resolved to have higher levels of off-site staff and therefore need to manage them in such a way that their productivity and well being is optimised – this is part of the “new normal”.
Join us for a highly interactive online training session. The video conferencing solution we have available will give you the ability to attend the workshop from your home or office using a laptop or mobile device. We use Zoom for this purpose which has great options for presentation, screen sharing and breakout rooms, so the full interactive experience will be available for all participants. During the course of the day, we’ll dig into the latest research in this rapidly developing area of remote work and you will come away with a range of practical suggestions to apply these research findings to your business.

What Type of Person is Suited to Remote Work?
Businesses are facing unparalleled challenges as a results of the Covid-19 pandemic. One particular obstacle is the mass relocation of staff from their primary office location to a remote working environment in their home. Even before the pandemic organisations have been transitioning to more remote work for flexibility and cost reasons.
While there are clear logistical challenges that this can raise there are also issues around the compatibility of an employee’s psychological makeup with working solely from home. To help organisations understand the likelihood that an employee will thrive in a work from home environment SACS has undertaken a review of the current research on this topic.
Change Without Pain
Worldwide we are currently going through a period of very substantial change. Changes in health, changes in community attitudes, changes in the way that we work and changes in the business models of organisations, just to name a few. Organisations are asking their employees to do things very differently from how they’ve ever done before and to cope with new challenges they’ve never had to face up to before. View this webinar to gain an understanding of the latest discoveries relating to change and many practical tips and suggestions about how to plan for and implement change in your own organisation.

Leadership in Tough Times
For many employees across the world times are tough.

Resilience is being challenged in a way that it has not been in living memory. Watch this webinar and you will be brought up to date with the latest research on stress, resilience and leader behaviours which optimise coping and productivity. You will come away with initiatives you will be able to use immediately at work.
