AHEIA/ATEM Human Resources Policy Forum

This forum in partnership with ATEM will bring HR policy practitioners together to explore current challenges and identify leading practice in HR policy work. Participants will be surveyed in advance about their current challenges and projects and their insights into effective HR policy practice. They will explore ‘hot topics’ in HR policy in breakout groups and in plenary discussions. The forum will include presentations on recent HR policy projects and an introduction to a model for consolidating and simplifying policies. 

The forum will be offered over two half-days and all attendees will receive a complimentary PDF copy of ATEM’s handbook Policy without (much) pain: a guide to best practice in institutional policy development and policy management in Australian tertiary institutions.

Learning outcomes

Participants will gain

  • an understanding of current leading practice in HR policy development and review and management of an institution’s HR policy suite
  • an understanding of approaches to current challenges in this policy area, and
  • a network of contacts at other tertiary institutions for benchmarking research and career mobility.

Who should attend?

The HR Policy Forum is intended for tertiary institution staff who develop, review and manage human resources policies, and for executive staff responsible for this work. Staff who manage institutional policy suites will also find it of value in helping them understand the challenges specific to HR policies.


The lead facilitator of the forum, Dr Kai Jensen of PolicyTrain, is a co-founder of the ATEM Institutional Policy Network and lead author of ATEM’s policy guide. Kai has 25 years’ experience as a manager in Australasian tertiary institutions, during which time he specialised increasingly in policy development and policy management. Since leaving RMIT University in 2017, Kai has founded PolicyTrain, a consultancy to help tertiary institutions and other organisations make their policies more effective.
