Team Based Self Rostering

The purpose of this policy is to allow employees to have more flexibility to plan their work around other commitments and responsibilities, whilst still fulfilling the needs of the service.

Team Based Self Rostering involves a basic shift in the way people think about work. Self rostering means agreeing the staffing levels and skill mix required at any time in the day, then giving staff the ability to schedule their working day collectively to meet these requirements.
