What we do
How we do it
To get the job done, we need you.
Our members operate on the ground and provide us with the unique insights we need to develop our advocacy positions.
That’s why our member-based policy committees are so important.
They provide a direct line of communication between members, management and the Board.
Our policy committees examine the costs of doing business, infrastructure, workplace health and safety, workforce skills and workplace policy. They cover all the key areas that can determine the success of business.
We also lead by putting important issues on the policy agenda. Our Thought Leadership initiative tackles emerging challenges for business and society. It keeps our focus on the future with research and events; contributing thought leadership as we face the future together.
Major Thought Leadership projects have included research and events examining issues such as:
By listening to our members through regular surveys, group and individual meetings, phone advice lines, policy committees and advisory councils we can identify emerging challenges.
Our policy experts design solutions that address these issues, which we then recommend to government for implementation.
