Home' HR Monthly : August 2014 Contents CONTRIBUTORS
Meet some of the HR, legal and leadership professionals
who have contributed to the August issue.
Kerryn Fewster believes that it's not a useful initiative to pay
employees to quit, on page 12.
"Leaders set the tone for the workplace;
employees look to them for direction,
guidance and opportunities. It can be a
challenge for leaders to invest time and
effort in their teams and deliver on their
commitments, so coaching them is crucial."
"Generation Y will increasingly influence
the workplace, reconstructing how we work,
what is acceptable and how we retain talent.
Baby Boomers and Generation X managers
need to really understand the implications of
this generational value shift."
Dr Duncan Murray has co-written an article on the role
followers play in perpetuating toxic leaders, on page 28.
OFFICER AT SOUTH
"Some of the biggest problems facing HR
professionals are the need to wear too
many hats, the burden of change in policy,
legislation and industrial instruments,
changes in workforce demographics,
and the general way we work. HR needs
to be resilient. We are not superhuman,
even though we try to be all things to all
departments and our business."
HALL & WILCOX
"Workplace bullying has been an area of
increased focus since the introduction of specific
bullying provisions into the Fair Work Act 2009.
Employers should be prioritising measures to
prevent workplace bullying and to minimise their
liability. This includes implementing policies and
procedures, providing training to employees and
ensuring they carefully investigate complaints
when they arise."
Erin Weston has provided an AHRI bookshop review,
on page 49.
Alison Baker has contributed an article on debunking
probation myths, on page 47.
