01/03/17 – Seminar: Resourcing for Flexible Project Teams

A constant challenge for a consultancy business is dedicating the right resources and expertise to each team through the inevitable delays and sudden accelerations of a construction project. Flexibility is essential, but difficult to achieve.

How do you resource your office to manage an unpredictable environment? How can you step up to bigger or more specialised projects? How do you decrease resources when business slows down between jobs? And what happens when things go wrong?

In this intensive seminar, we draw together specialists in human resources and risk management from Lander & Rogers Lawyers, AIG Insurance as well as our own informed Risk Managers to look at:

  • Growing your resources by joint work with other practices. What are the implications of sub-consulting, incorporated and unincorporated joint ventures, and working ‘in association’?
  • Taking on new staff – including an overview of relevant legislation, contractors/employees, redundancies, managing under-performance and office policies.
  • When things go wrong – examples of employee claims, and an overview of insurance for Employment Practices Liability.


This 3-hour event will consist of presentations and a panel discussion by:


Felicity Jools (Sydney seminar) /Wendy Poulton Risk Manager (Melbourne Seminar)



Mark Sullivan Partner (Sydney seminar) / Julian Riekert Partner (Melbourne seminar)
