The Workplace Briefcase

Episode 01 | The Father of Modern HR

Mapien’s Troy Gread speaks to the Father of Modern HR, Dave Ulrich, about ‘harnessing uncertainty’ and what a worldwide pandemic means for HR in Australia. We get personal with Dave and find out how the most recognisable global HR facilitator and presenter pivots when he’s confined to his home office as he offers up some of his most valuable advice yet. As LinkedIn creates a breeding ground for a new wave of HR philosophers, Dave shares he’s candid response to those who have recently challenged his HR concepts, theories and models on LinkedIn.

Ep 02 | Graeme Watson – Industrial Relations, Frustrations & Bargaining Ramifications

The Hon Graeme Watson joins us with over 40 years’ experience in workplace and industrial relations to discuss IR reform, the slow death of enterprise bargaining, and the fundamental changes required for business productivity through bargaining on the other side of Covid.
Graeme shares his advice, his suggestions, and ideas on how businesses need to adjust when crafting their EA bargaining strategies. The AFR’s ‘Workplace Warrior’ has been involved, and settled, some of the biggest and most publicised industrial relations cases in Australian workplace history.
