The pace of change in employment / HR law and employee relations is ramping up - including new approaches to workplace wellbeing, performance management, terminations, and workplace investigations.
 
Other issues are increasing in prominence and complexity to manage, including bullying and harassment, sexual harassment, and other forms of inappropriate workplace conduct.
 
Adopting and integrating strong policies and practices around health and wellbeing - both physical and psychological – is also becoming an increasingly important mandate for employers to ensure a healthy, engaged and productive workforce.
