Flexible work practices

At Treasury, we understand that flexible work practices contribute to a work environment where everyone can achieve a healthy work-life balance.

Our approach to flexible work

We align our workplace flexibility practices with the Queensland Government’s Flexible by Design framework, which:

  • embeds flexible work into all roles
  • establishes health, safety and wellbeing as an organisational priority
  • provides collaborative work environments and mobile technology support
  • creates opportunities for frequent and meaningful conversations about outcomes to measure employee performance.

Our approach to flexible work underpins Treasury’s collaborative workplace culture, in which teams are committed to delivering their priorities and ensuring employees’ unique circumstances are understood and considered.

The COVID-19 experience has taught us much, and building on this experience, we appreciate the value of consistent and continued application of a sustainable and effective balance of in-office and remote working environments for our employees.

Employees can request and negotiate a range of flexible work arrangements with their manager, including:

  • hours of work – for example, part-time work, job sharing, flexible working hours, compressed hours
  • work location – for example, a blend of working in the Treasury workplace and remote working from home, working at a government distributed work centre
  • other arrangements – for example, purchased leave, leave without pay, phased/transition to retirement.
