Many factors influence a nation’s productivity, but in Australia aggressive workplace relations are having a bigger impact than they do in other nations. Productivity can thrive better in a set up where workplace management, leadership capabilities, and investment in the right skills and training is key.

This report, Laying down their arms – the Great Australian Workplace Relations Challenge, looks at:

  • how aggressive workplace relations can stifle productivity
  • the inconsistency of legislation
  • why a high performance culture with skills, knowledge and motivation is key
  • why the German SME model is a useful guide
  • how to make restructuring a positive experience, and more.
