Employee Relations

NEW - Human Resources / Industrial Relations Service

Overview

The LGA has recently reviewed and upgraded its contracted human resources and industrial relations support to Councils. It is pleased to provide a panel of seven firms which have all been appointed following a tender process. The firms selected all have significant experience working within the Local Government environment on Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management issues. Councils can seek quotes for work from these firms, confident of their expertise in a Local Government environment and knowing their prices will be consistent with the LGA's buying power. Each firm also maintains contact with the LGA on industrial relations, superannuation, workers compensation issues and on wider inter-governmental and policy matters which could impact on Employee Relations.

LGA Monitoring/Quality Control 

The LGA has engaged the panel of providers for a period of 2 years with contracts coming to completion in early September 2016.  Whilst a comprehensive tender process was undertaken to assess the skills and knowledge of the practitioners in each firm, we are keen to formally conduct a review of the service.  This does not prevent Councils providing their views on the service at any time, and the below “feedback  sheet” can be used at any time.  The formal review of the service will be conducted on an annual basis and address the following matters:

  • nature of services being sought by Councils
  • providers that are receiving the most/least work
  • quality of the services being provided, including timeliness
  • value for service perceived by Councils through accessing the panel of providers
  • other relevant factors

The LGA will also be seeking from Councils a quarterly report of usage as the LGA does receive a small commission from providers.  This commission is used for the management of the service and also to create a small fund to contribute towards projects and research that will enhance the practices of Councils in human resource management and industrial relations.

Feedback 

This form has been prepared to provide the LGA with immediate feedback where the service has worked really well for you and your Council or where you have an issue that has caused you to not be satisfied with the service.
