Welcome to the Queensland Health orientation and induction program. We endeavour to provide a workplace culture that is personally and professionally rewarding by recognising and supporting our people as the foundation of all our health services. Towards that end we are committed to an orientation process that provides appropriate information, encouragement and resources.
The Queensland Government has identified workforce sustainability as a priority for all agencies across the sector. The Queensland Health People Plan 2007-2012 identified the strategic steps to build a better health system by:
Our people are a critical resource for developing new and improved health service delivery capabilities that are needed now and in the future. As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the workplace, we promote professional development and other training opportunities to assist employees to reach their individual work goals. We want to help new employees adjust to a new work environment and to foster enthusiasm for the values and beliefs of Queensland Health. Queensland Health strives to create a healthy, productive workplace, free from harassment and discrimination.
Your manager will help familiarise you with your role and work area, and you should not hesitate to approach that person with any enquiries or concerns.
We look forward to you joining our enthusiastic and professional workforce, and to your participation in Queensland Health's provision of safe and sustainable health services and contribution to an improved quality of life for all Queenslanders.
Dr Tony O'Connell
