Workplace Mid-Year Review – 2016

Web graphic WPR review4
4 August 2016

The Corrs Workplace Relations team is pleased to present our third annual review of the Australian employment, workplace and safety landscape.

In this year’s review, we have chosen to explore five key issues that we consider Australian employers need to be engaging with in the modern workplace:-

  • digital disruption and the future of work

  • Australia’s 21st century infrastructure needs

  • the public sector workforce

  • social enterprises and the not-for-profit sector

  • business culture and risk

These five themes are discussed in detail and examined in the context of safety, risk and culture.

The new, thematic approach taken in this publication reflects the increasing integration of issues that have traditionally been siloed into the categories of employment, discrimination, industrial relations and safety.

We hope you find this year’s publication insightful and relevant.

If you wish to discuss anything raised in the Mid-Year Review further, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our workplace relations partners listed to the right.
