I want as many employers as possible to sign up to the Good Work Standard as I believe this is the benchmark for employment standards that all employers should aim to achieve.

The success of the Good Work Standard will depend on not just how many employers sign up to the initiative and gain accreditation, but also the number of workers and employees within those organisations who will see the benefits of those improved working practices.

We will also know the Good Work Standard is a success by monitoring how many employers use the Good Work Standard tools to improve their employment practices and by ensuring we are engaging a range of employers from different sectors and of different sizes.
