Management is mostly transparent in their practices and actively encourages open and free lines of communication. 4. Access to further training and knowledge sharing are available to all in the spirit of enhancing their contribution to the business and work performance. 5. Open group discussions and the opportunity to provide feedback are part of the ongoing business practice. 6. Management takes coordinated steps to develop the job satisfaction of each individual employee. What is our Policy? Management will be responsible for on going training and education for all employees on diversity, equal opportunity and harassment. Breaches of this policy will be reported to senior management and result in disciplinary action. The business owner will proactively monitor the performance of the organization in meeting these standards and following set out procedures. Communication All communication between management and team members will not include discriminatory language and be shared in the spirit of equal opportunity and fairness to all employees. All communication will be delivered with respect and based on the enhancement of the business. Regular staff meetings will be held to inform all employees of business related information and provide an open forum for feedback. Venus Day Spa Diversity Policy Vision How do we do this? Victoria Equal Opportunity Act 1995 This Act outlines discrimination on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy, status as a carer, race, religious or political belief and industrial activity as unlawful conduct and covers the areas of employment, education and professional organisations. Proposed action Bullying & Harassment Workplace diversity is a people issue, focused on initiatives that encourage a culture of non-discrimination and respect for all equally. Diversity creates environments that are open to learning from others and workplaces can benefit from the advantages those different perspectives and influences can bring. These differences may include race, religion, gender and age group. Performance Review Systematically and periodically, all team members will have the opportunity for individual performance reviews. This will provide the scope for management and employees to discuss and develop the work related interests and skills of each team member and enhance their job satisfaction and contribution to the organization. It will also provide a forum for team members to candidly air any concerns or grievances they may experience as part of their work undertaking. Training All internal and external training opportunities will be based on individual professional development and the requirements of the organization. All decisions relating to training, career advancement, personal and professional development will be merit based and meet organizational needs. At Venus Day Spa, it is an important part of our culture to identify and promote the individual characteristics and skills of each employee to enhance our business. Regardless of our contrasts of age, cultural heritage, appearance or level of experience, we aim to achieve optimal productivity and harmony, taking into consideration all of our strengths and differences. We are committed ensuring that all employees of Venus Day Spa are treated with respect. The benefits of this policy will promote a balanced and positive workplace, where there is maximum co-operation between team members. This contributes to the morale and job satisfaction of all employees and the financial success of the organization. This policy is applicable to all employees of the organisation and encompasses the specific diversity issues of equal employment opportunity, relating to age and cultural background and harassment The Law Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986 The grounds of discrimination in employment under this Act include race, colour, sex, religion, political view, ethnic origin, age, criminal and medical record, marital status, disability, sexual orientation and trade union affiliation. What is Bullying? Bullying is repeated unreasonable behaviour directed towards a worker or group of workers that creates a risk to health and safety. In most cases, this behaviour is persistent and happens over a period of time. Bullying can take many forms, such as publicly humiliating someone, verbal abuse or spreading malicious rumours or gossip. Bullying can be verbal or in writing, including online. It can be carried out by more than one person and be experienced by individuals as well as groups of people. Bullying can be directed downwards (from supervisors/managers to workers), sideways (between workers) or upwards (workers to supervisors/managers). Fair Work Act 2009 This
