The Collectively Approach

Don't overcook it

We use the right-sized solution for our individual client’s needs. Identifying key problems and blockages within their current industrial relations framework, and strategising, planning, preparing and implementing collective bargaining processes to resolve them.

Don't over complicate it

Reaching long-term sustainable business solutions that befit both employer and employees is our focus. We engage pragmatically and practically, guiding business with a non-partisan approach.

Don't view it in a vacuum

We are engagement focused, so we factor in the short and long-term goals of the business when developing solutions, and how these will benefit and support future pathways.

Why Collectively Consulting?

Collective bargaining is what we live and breathe. We know how all-consuming industrial relations can be – regardless of business size, industry, the number of unions or agreements involved.

We take a full picture approach to identifying issues and influences at play – including employee engagement of union affiliation.

We then deliver the external expertise, coupled with wider industry knowledge, to pragmatically work through agreements to achieve solutions that remain on budget and are operationally and commercially sound.

Collectively.Consulting has helped many businesses and has always provided them with top-tier solutions tailored to their needs.
