Resources to help you in your role

Hiki cards

As you grow into your role as an HSR, it will change as you see and learn more. We also recognise that it’s a voluntary workplace role, and sometimes you may not have the time you need to dedicate to it.

The real purpose of the HSR role is to help in the ways that you can.

It all starts by caring about your mates at work, listening, and understanding them.

The Hiki cards can help you decide which parts of the HSR role are the best fit for you and will help you have conversations with your manager on how they can support you. You can also see how you might want to grow in the role. They were all written by HSRs, for HSRs.
