EMPLOYEE RELATIONS STRATEGY REPORT
The Employee Relations unit of competency has focussed on key issues in employee relations. In this you are required to review, develop and recommend some components of employee relations strategy and report it to your manager (who in this case is your trainer).
The organisation in this context is an Australian electricity company named ENERGEX. The company website is at https://www.energex.com.au/. Using their current strategy documents linked below, you are required to review and report on their employee relations.
