Our world is changing like never before. Increased competition, technological changes and the rapid flow of information has created markets that are highly competitive, and function differently. So how does this affect your business and your employment relationships?

In this webinar, we will discuss why it’s critical that your HR function is protecting your business and adding value through policies and processes that aim to motivate and retain employees.

An employment relationship can exist in different forms – whether it be employer-employee or employer-contractor. It is essential that this relationship is well defined to manage risk.

Policies and procedures are often relegated to dust-collectors if they are not fit-for-purpose and designed with the organisation’s culture and tone front of mind. They help to set standards and expectations for your employees. It’s important that your policies are tailored to your business in order to create the impact you intend.

We will discuss how to ensure that the employment relationship is properly documented and expectations and rules of engagement are transparent. These foundations then enhance and nurture a positive employment relationship of trust, wellbeing, fairness and inclusion.
