Business NZ chief executive Kirk Hope and Council of Trade Unions (CTU) president Richard Wagstaff join Grant Robertson in leading the Future of Work Tripartite Forum.
Air New Zealand chief executive Christopher Luxon and KiwiRail chief executive Peter Reidy attended and shared their experiences leading ‘High Performance, High Engagement’ workplaces where executives and workers collaborate to harness opportunities from the changing nature of work.
A few key highlights:
“We know we can create better workplaces both in terms of productivity and in terms of employee experience. We have a great opportunity to learn from our best practices so they become the norm, not the exception,”Richard Wagstaff
“Not all of the future is knowable in advance, but we can gain insights into ways of working to provide better outcomes for everyone involved, with no-one left behind. We can build on best practice in the workplace as we know it today. The Future of Work Tripartite Forum gives us the opportunity to reflect on how we can maintain our place as one of the best economies and societies in the world,”Kirk Hope
“To achieve our plan to future proof the economy and lift the living standards of all New Zealanders, the Coalition Government recognises the need to work differently. We know we cannot achieve this vision on our own,”
“This collaborative approach will be critical to ensuring we adapt effectively to changes in technology or processes that our businesses and workers rely on,”Grant Robertson
