Evaluation of the Respect@Work Council
The purpose of the evaluation of the Respect@Work Council is to examine the processes and impact of the council, including the extent to which its establishment has contributed to improved coordination, consistency and clarity among key stakeholders and across existing legal and regulatory frameworks.
An evaluation plan will be developed in consultation with the Respect@Work Council secretariat in 2022. The plan will be developed using a strengths-based, co-design approach in which key stakeholders will have input into the evaluation design, implementation and reporting.
In particular, the Respect@Work Council chair, secretariat and members (as available) will collaborate with the ANROWS evaluation team to finalise the purpose and focus of the evaluation; the evaluation criteria, questions and sub-questions; the data sources; the data collection and analysis methods; the analysis and presentation of results; and the timeframe for the evaluation.
The evaluation will provide insights for the Respect@Work Council to improve its own operations and impact. The evaluation will also provide broader learnings about the effectiveness of cross-sector coordinating mechanisms, such as this, as an alternative to establishing a new statutory authority.
