Tasmanian Department of State Growth sets new record for ‘Outstanding Achievement’ in Workplace Accreditation Program
Early in October, the Tasmanian Department of State Growth successfully achieved White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation status. An enormous achievement in itself, after completing the rigorous 18-month program demonstrating a strong stance in response to men’s violence against women.
Not only have they received accreditation status, but received 8 ‘outstanding achievements’ against their assessment criteria. A new record for the Workplace Accreditation Program since its inception in 2012.
Through their assessment, it was clear that Tasmanian State Growth is strongly committed to creating an inclusive workplace that embraces the values of equality and respect. They were also rated as ‘outstanding’ regarding their internal communications, engagement, policy development, manager training, risk assessment, support for victims and approach to continuous improvement.
Their accreditation not only demonstrates what they stand for as an organisation but allows them to encourage other industries to take the same stand.
