Employee Ownership Australia’s 2015 Annual Conference will be held at the head office of Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills, 101 Collins Street, Melbourne, on Thursday May 21st, 2015.
This year’s event is the organisation’s 4th annual conference and Employee Ownership Australia expects attendance by delegates representing more than 70 leading organisations.
The conference will close with a keynote presentation by The Hon Bruce Billson, Federal Minister for Small Business and Member for Dunkley.
Employee Ownership has operated in many other countries and research confirms that – to the considerable advantage of employers – their staff members who participate are both more committed to their companies’ objectives, and remain on the payroll longer.
This annual conference it the largest of its type in Australia and is routinely the ‘must attend’ event for HR professionals, employment lawyers, share plan advisors, finance directors, communicators and company secretaries.
It provides the ideal opportunity for like-minded senior executives from both the private and public sectors to exchange their own experiences of running Employee Ownership programmes and hear from leading advocates in this space.
Those experts this year will include Andrew Pendleton, who is Professor of Human Resources Management at Durham University Business School in the UK. Professor Pendleton’s very extensive experience in this sector includes earlier positions at the University of York Management School and other UK institutions of higher learning; and visiting appointments at Monash and Sydney Universities. Currently, he is Faculty Fellow and Mentor in the Beyer Program at the School of Management and Labor Relations at Rutgers University in the United States.
