About Us

Running an organisation, company or department – big or small – isn’t easy. Add a unionised workforce to the mix and complexity rapidly increases. Sometimes you need help. Adelhelm & Associates is a specialist industrial relations (IR) consultancy and training provider that assists companies and managers with working pragmatically with employees and unions.

Our extensive knowledge and practical training allows us to look for customised practical solutions that aren’t always immediately obvious. We’re confident in making the tough calls when we have to, which means we will tell you what you really need to know, even if it’s something you don’t really want to hear.

  • Adelhelm & Associates offers business-focussed industrial relations consultancy services throughout Australia, New Zealand and further afield.
  • Our consultants are hands-on practitioners with local and international experience across a wide range of industries.
  • We use the most up-to-date techniques and tactics for resolving industrial relations issues.
  • We have extensive experience working with both local businesses and global companies or multi-national organisations.
  • We understand the importance of the law and work closely with prominent employment law specialists, but we don’t let the law drive the agenda.
  • We understand the importance of timing and making informed key decisions early.
  • We regularly present IR management and supervisory training workshops throughout Australia and New Zealand.
