IR 365: Optimising Industrial Relations Management (Virtual)

"There was a good balance of theory with open discussion, with it becoming clear to all participants that the facilitators are experts in their field. The IR risk assessment and case studies helped to shape our discussions and drive future actions, it was a valuable workshop that we will continue to roll out and expand upon to a wider group."
