About the Event

We believe that a healthy and transparent Industrial Relations culture is pivotal to Australia’s’ success in a global market.

To remain competitive, we need to negate any disruption stemming from of industrial action and create productive, cohesive working environments.

Failure to do so will grind the economy to a halt, will cause you reputational damage, and worse still – you’ll become alienated from your most valued asset – your people.

Bringing together the nation’s most diverse employers, the Industrial Relations Summit 2019 discusses new and innovative strategies on how to effectively manage the employer/employee relationship through creating a transparent and healthy workplace culture.

IR systems need to align with policies and practices to ensure an organisational success in an increasingly global marketplace, bringing together management and their workforce to protect company reputation, increase productivity, and connect with your most valuable asset – your employees
