Mastering Fair Work: Why It Matters

8:30am
Dundee

open-to-all

Join us to hear how an an engaged workforce can drive business to success

This event is delivered in partnership with the Dundee and Angus Chamber of Commerce.

The most important asset of a business is its people.

In order to grow and develop this asset, leaders are implementing a new business culture and people practices to empower employees to reach their potential. A framework that can help businesses improve their people management is Fair Work.

During this session, we will hear from Alison Henderson, CEO Dundee & Angus Chamber of Commerce, about the practical steps they have taken to become a Fair Work employer and why an engaged workforce can drive business to success.

“Running a business of any size and being an employer means it’s important to balance the rights of the business & our employees…we always do what we can to adopt fair work policies, whether that is in supporting carers & parents, investing in ways to engage & empower our workforce, or paying the Real Living Wage.”

 

Join this interactive session that will offer opportunities to ask questions, discuss challenges and solutions, and network with peers.
