Human Resources Focus
mlcoa attended the 2017 National HR Summit at the iconic Luna Park in Sydney on 29th and 30th March, one of the largest gatherings of senior HR professionals in Australia.
Delegates discussed the most crucial and complex people management issues facing the industry today. A key reflection of delegates was that health is the new focus of the HR industry.
HR professionals are being asked to deal with a minefield of issues outside the traditional work-related roles and responsibilities. Needing to address issues such as presenteeism, absenteeism, concerns about safety of co-workers, company liability at risk (due to duty of care, occupational health and safety, workers compensation, public liability claims),concerns about the safety of members of the public, need to clarify poor job performance/productivity versus a legitimate health issue.
mlcoa’s Corporate Fitness for Duty Assessments can play an important role in the Human Resource and Industrial environment; in managing your employee’s return to work and safety at work whilst supporting and promoting a safe work culture.
