A new approach to dispute resolution
The TIO restructured the leadership of the Dispute Resolution division in July 2012 to focus on strengthening operations, workforce planning, quality and staff development.
We adopted this new approach to meet our strategic goals of improving our efficiency, quality and accessibility. Positions were created with responsibilities over:
- workforce planning, and
- complex investigations.
Ongoing strategic work
Our focus is to improve the quality and efficiency of the TIO’s dispute resolution. Some of the strategic work that began in 2012-13 to achieve this includes:
- creating a nationally-recognised Alternative Dispute Resolution qualification to formalise and develop the skills of our staff
- training subject matter experts in credit complaints
- setting timeliness and quality performance indicators for staff, and
- developing a quality framework.
