Workforce Mobilisation

The Workforce Mobilisation Team is a temporary team which will help us coordinate our workforce, as we manage the impacts of COVID-19​, and continue caring for non-COVID-19 patients.

The team can support managers where:

  • Employees are unable to perform their normal role because:
    • the service or unit is temporarily closed or reducing services, or
    • the employee has completed the At Risk Employee Process and requires assistance to be temporarily reassigned
  • there is a requirement for new or additional resources (where internal options have been exhausted)
  • there are projects which could benefit from reassigning people

The team will also manage the potential reassignment of employees where their additional skills may be sought to assist in critical need areas (i.e. ICU, Support Services, and Emergency) — see Workforce Mobilisation Profile below.

All coordination of the medical workforce mobilisation will be via Sonya Steve with the Monash Health Medical Workforce Unit.

What does reassignment mean?

Reassignment temporarily places an employee into a role within a different unit/function. This aims to support the employee to continue work as well as support the resource needs across the organisation.

The temporary placement means all aspects of the employee’s work will be managed by the placement manager, until such time as the employee’s primary service is reinstated. This includes leave, Kronos administration etc.

Please refer to the FAQs to help answer additional questions.
