WE STRENGTHEN THE MANNER
IN WHICH CLIENTS MANAGE AND ORGANISE THEIR RELATIONSHIPS
Navigating our complex bargaining laws and regulations isn’t easy. Having your own tailored enterprise agreement is one option to ensure your workplace has a compliant, relevant set of rules. Ross Clarke is the Principal of Work Relations and brings more than 20 years of experience to the bargaining room.
Work Relations provides practical, common sense training to prepare your organisation for the process. This includes a web-based guide called How To Bargain which covers a simplified version of the various elements of enterprise bargaining. It is in plain English, keeping legal requirements in mind, but without the jargon of legislation. Experience has proven that investing in a good process delivers good bargaining and improved results.
Work Relations also provides consulting services for projects requiring strategic planning, enterprise bargaining, traditional dispute resolution and the implementation of risk management measures.
Ross has worked closely with federal governments on the formation and implementation of federal industrial legislation and successfully worked in the oil, distribution, banking, manufacturing, transport and telecommunication sectors for some of Australia’s best-known corporates. He has been employed as the National Director of IR at the Australian Hotels Association, formed and headed the Australian Retailers Association’s Enterprise Bargaining Unit and worked with many of Australia’s leading Hotel Chains.
Ross began his career as a barrister in Queensland prior to commencing as an Industrial Officer with the Retailers Association of Queensland in 1997, before heading up the Australian Retailers Association’s (ARA) National Enterprise Bargaining Unit.
