    I have been working at Queensland Health part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    People care about outcomes. A le to escalate issues within work unit effectively. Flexible roster ING.

    Cons

    Lack of investment in developing employees skills once at a certain level. Hard to gain experience across organisation and be mobile without impacting career progression. Rewards those who stay within a work unit not those that expand skills in multiple positions.

    Advice to Management

    At the executive level take a look at some of the large private organisations and see how they support employees taking up opportunities.

    Lot of options for career pathways and progress. Certainty of employment ongoing and great fbt free salary sacrifice benefits if you are located in a hospital.

    Disorganised at many levels however this does create lots of opportunity to make improvements. Quite a lot of politics however this can be avoided with the right approach. They are working on improving culture but this will take time .
