DC&A has over 30 years experience in the Human Resource area with a particular strength in the area of labour relations. DC&A has supervised large labour relations departments and mentored both senior labour relations practitioners and junior employees new to the field of labour relations.
DC&A has not only provided advice and strategic guidance to labour relations practitioners but they has also raised the level of understanding in labour/management relationships, and in doing so has raised the level of self-confidence in individuals and labour relations team members resulting in effective decision making and better time management.
Assess the Skill Gap
In order to best approach the process of building a strong in-house Labour Relations Team we take the time to assess the current structure and skill gaps with the organization's LR team.
Individual Education Plan
Once we have a solid understanding of the skill level within the group we map out an education plan which will close the skill gap, build individual self-confidence, and address the fundamental principles of Labour Relations from a very practical hands on approach to day-to-day labour relations activity. Direct feedback is provided to each individual and a development plan is agreed to. Commitments are made by each employee and the expectation is to stay committed to the plan.
Turning the Plan into Practice
This includes a mix of formal in-house training in the fundamentals of practical labour relations, one on one mentoring, and team building. Building team strength is premised on team participation in an exchange of dialogue, a sharing of ideas, and a constructive approach to learning for the entire group.
