METRICS REQUEST – Span of control

Just wondering if other small agencies with 250 or less employees would be able to share with me the number/make up of their HR teams i.e., headcount/FTE and classification and how many staff they supervise.

Good Morning,


The AEC is reviewing our approach to managing Individual Flexibility Arrangements and we are reaching out to other agencies to see if you can share any information about how you manage requests for additional salary.


Any information or guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Cultural Leave during NAIDOC week

DPS is enquiring about the use of cultural leave during NAIDOC week.

In regards to the cultural leave, we were hoping to hear from other agencies as to who they have cultural leave available to during NAIDOC week.

Specifically, is it available to those of non-indigenous background to utilise in order to attend NAIDOC week celebrations, or is it just limited to Indigenous people to access during this time.

Any direction and advice would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,
