Information for Employers

Business performance greatly improves when your employee feels included in your workplace. Your employee will feel committed to you and their colleagues when they can see and feel that their workplace supports cultural diversity.

Each person is an individual so it is important to be aware of cultural differences in your workplace.

Here is a brief outline to help increase your business performance, while making the most of a culturally diverse workplace.

Communication

Original Nations people communicate in a different way to Non-Indigenous Australians. By understanding key aspects of communication you will have a positive and supportive relationship with your employee and workplace environment.

Relationships 

Family relationships – immediate and extended – are intricate and very different to Non-Indigenous family structures. Original Nations family structure not only includes connections by genealogy and marriage, but also through what is known as the Kinship System. The Kinship System defines a person’s roles, rights and responsibilities in their community.

Responsibilities

Responsibilities encompasses family and cultural obligations and commitments in providing support and care for immediate and extended family. An example of an important responsibility is Sorry Business. This is a term used by Original Nations people to describe the mourning process and commitments when a family or community member passes away.
