We recognise that everyone has different needs and responsibilities and flexibility means different things for different people.
Providing flexible working options that support you to manage your work life balance is beneficial to both the university and our staff in a number of ways which include:
We understand that peoples' work life balance needs change over time as people move through transitions in their lives. Our policies allow the flexibility to accommodate these changing needs.
This may include:
Working from home or another location is an attractive flexible work offering for current and future staff and we encourage all our staff and supervisors to explore flexible work options that provide a good balance between work and other aspects of their life. We recognise that working from home or remotely may not be possible for some staff due to the nature of their role and responsibilities, or their specific personal circumstances.
A range of resources are available to assist staff and supervisors establish safe and effective work from home arrangements which maintains or improves service delivery.
ACU also provides resources to help parents with work life balance - please see the Supporting Parents at ACU Information Kit for parents and parents-to-be at the university.
