Teachers’ Strike “Creche” Success

19 September 2011

NSW public school teachers held industrial action recently, giving parents only 48 hours to find alternative care arrangements for their school age children.

Realising the impact on many of those who work for Medtronic the HR team arranged for an emergency “crèche” to be established in the Sydney office Mezzanine, with professional staff sourced via an agency.

A total of seven children attended and a fantastic time was had by all. The initiative was very well received by staff who were able to come into work despite the disruption caused by the strike, knowing that their children would be well cared for on-site.
