Our work in this area sees us engaging with government on all areas of employment relations policy, including participation in major government reviews of legislation such as the Employment Relations Act, the Holidays Act and the Health and Safety in Employment Act.

We are also very active in the international employment relations arena. Our CEO Kirk Hope is New Zealand's Employer Delegate to the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the Chairman of the Business Innovation Advisory Committee (BIAC) to the OECD.

Kirk and our Employment Relations Manager, Paul Mackay, regularly lead ILO workshops around the world. Both Phil and Paul have led the international employers group in negotiating international labour standards such as ILO Conventions.
