Building the capacity to innovate : the role of human capital /

by Smith, Andrew | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Courvisanos, Jerry | Tuck, Jacqueline.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2012Description: PDF.Other title: National Vocational Education and Training Research and.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2012 Bibliography p. 38Summary: In this paper, the authors examine the links between human resource management, including learning and development practices, and building innovation capacity. The survey component of the research found only limited evidence for the links between human resource management and innovation capacity, although some management practices such as the bundling of high performance work practices were found to have some association with innovation capacity. Subsequent case studies found a lack of understanding by large enterprises of the role of human resource management in fostering innovation capacity. This was seen to have implications for the tertiary education system in stimulating demand for innovation courses.Availability: (1)

Family-friendly work practices : differences within and between workplaces /

by Gray, Matthew | Australian Institute of Family Studies | Tudball, Jacqueline.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies 2002Summary: This study analyses the extent to which access to family-friendly work practices is influenced or determined by differential access within organisations as compared with differential access between organisations. The analysis is based upon the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey 1995 (AWIRS95), a linked employee—employer data set. The linked nature of the data allows information from employers and employees to be combined, providing a unique perspective on the incentives and constraints employers face when deciding which work practices to make available to which employees. These data allow the first large-scale study in Australia of differences in access to family-friendly work practices amongst employees working in the same workplace.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Living low paid : the dark side of prosperous Australia. /

by Masterman-Smith, Helen | Pocock, Barbara.

Publisher: Crows Nest, N.S.W. Allen & Unwin 2008Description: xiv, 241 p. ; 21 cm.Notes: Includes index. Bibliography: p. 224-235. Into & out of work 2nd copy on order 2/12/09 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: "Australia is more prosperous than at any other time in our history. Unemployment is at a record low, and the economy is performing well. Yet many Australians are working more for less and struggling to meet their basic needs, despite being employed. Living Low Paid investigates the Orwellian vision unfolding, often behind closed doors, in Australia's working heartland. The book challenges the low wage path to national prosperity by exposing the hard realities of living low paid for Australian workers today. In their own words, workers tell the costs of low pay for individuals, families and communities and the social fabric at large. Workers are increasingly being undermined by casualisation, hours of work and exploitative pay setting methods, while enormous tax breaks are given to the rich, jobs are 'outsourced', unions are muzzled and job entitlements such as sick pay, holiday pay and penalty rates are scrapped. The Rudd government's changes to industrial relations legislation only ameliorate the situation to some degree. Living Low Paid offers a biting account of Australia's growing underbelly. It is vital reading for anyone who cares about where Australia is heading."--Provided by publisher.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Publisher: Bruce, A.C.T. Australia Institute Nov 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: In the modern, technology-driven work environment, it is now possible to dictate what employees do when they are outside the workplace as well as in it. While one's 'free' time should normally be free of work demands, the ability to contact someone at any hour of the day by email or telephone often means that it is often interrupted by work. These new demands on non-work time via technology represent a form of soft control over workers and a new frontier in unpaid overtime.Availability: (1)

Reducing work life conflict : what works? : what doesn t? /

by Higgins, Chris | Duxbury, Linda | Lyons, Sean.

Publisher: [Ottawa, Canada] Health Canada 2008Description: PDF.Notes: URL: '' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:53:48 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response Family & early years Into & out of work INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Researchers have long been interested in understanding the strategies that individuals and families employ to cope with stressful events and circumstances. Although much has been written about coping strategies and processes, there has been a lack of integration among the researchers studying family coping, individual coping and organizational support for coping. As a result, these three fields have developed in relative isolation, despite the obvious overlap in their content. It is the intent of this report to provide a holistic picture of how strategies applied by the key stakeholders in the work life equation the individual, the family and the organization help employees cope with work life conflict. Accordingly, the key objective of this report is to identify coping strategies that are associated with lower levels of the four forms of work life conflict: role overload, work-to-family interference, family-to-work interference and caregiver strain.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
