Workplace Relation Education Series Lecture

Russell Lansbury, The University of Sydney Business School

19th Mar 2014  01:00 pm - 02:00 pm CBD Campus - Stockland Building Lvl 17,133 Castlereagh Street

The Workplace Relations Education Series has been established following the success of the 2013 lecture series. In 2014, the program has been expanded to encompass three aspects: an invited paper series, a lecture series, and mock unfair dismissal hearings. The lectures and mock hearings will take place in capital cities around Australia.

The first lecture for 2014 will be a collaboration between the Fair Work Commission and the University of Sydney.

Management-Employee Communications

Effective management-employee communications has long been viewed as a key ingredient in positive employment relations, yet they remain an elusive goal for many organisations.

This presentation will examine how employee communications and engagement can be better integrated with enterprise bargaining and employment relations to achieve productive outcomes for organisations and the broader economy.
