Supporting you through change

ACU is committed to supporting all our staff through change in the workplace.

Change is constant and is part of the process of continuous improvement and/or adjustment to external factors. Change occurs within organisations every day, from the way in which tasks are undertaken, the development of strategies and new products, to the systems and processes that affect work, to changes in the regulatory environment.

To support the university to effect change in the workplace, the Framework for Leading and Managing Change at ACU is the guide, with the ACU Staff Enterprise Agreement 2017-2021 outlining the requirements for consultation and change management where the change is major and are likely to have significant effects.

Where can I find out about consultation and change management at ACU?

Our change website is the central point of information about change occurring at ACU. You will find details about current change plans, their status and staffing impacts, and how to provide feedback or ask questions.

If you would like to provide feedback on any of the current change plans, you can do this via If you are personally impacted by a change plan, you will also be advised and consulted directly.

How are supervisors supported to lead change?

The Framework for Leading and Managing Change at ACU supports managers to lead and manage change successfully in the workplace, by providing useful resources about roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders.

You can access relevant workshops tailored to all staff and one specific to supervisors:

What support is available through the Employee Assistance Program?
