Framework Group and Mingara Leisure Group have worked in partnership for many years. Mingara has achieved great outcomes in creating and sustaining a safe workplace by leveraging the strengths of Framework Group in the provision of pre employment assessments as part of our recruitment process, the conduct of risk assessments and the development of safe operating procedures across the club, as well as the ongoing delivery of employee-focused, high touch injury management and rehabilitation coordinator services. James Ellis and his team of qualified and experienced practitioners build effective working partnerships with all stakeholders, and act as a true extension of the Mingara HR and WHS teams. Their organisational awareness and understanding of our workforce and workplace means they are able to add value across all services they deliver. Their empathetic and caring approach always shines through, and as a result of their exceptional communication skills and high quality monitoring and reporting practices, we have a truly effective operational partnership that is acknowledged in Mingara by employees and leaders alike.

Pre-employment Assessment

Framework’s pre-employment screening protocol is designed to provide as much useful information as possible. We understand the importance of giving you valid information. This is Framework’s point of difference!

Every day we make decisions based on insufficient information. Not only that but we’re also subject to a plethora of cognitive biases and we take shortcuts in decision making. If we didn’t we wouldn’t get through each day. Recognition of our biases and shortcuts is crucial to account for the limitations they impose on our decision making. Nowhere is this more applicable than in recruitment. Recruitment decisions are usually made in the context of limited time and the need to fill a position quickly.

This youtube link illustrates how context and priming affects our decision making.

As an employer, of course you want to discriminate in favour of the best candidate. However you have to be careful. It can be unlawful to discriminate based on a “medical impairment” and simple measurement of impairments is not a valid method of predicting performance on the job. Functional capacity is best determined by observing the candidate’s performance in context.

Framework advocates onsite assessments, ideally in circumstances that simulate the essential components of the job, including time pressure under supervision.

We also advocate supervisor/team leader involvement. Our experience is that task technique at work evolves continually and by involving supervisors we often identify variations that lead to learning. In fact the process can also inform the ongoing risk assessment process.
