The Minister of State for Business, Employment and Retail, Damien English TD has launched the third Strategy Statement of the Workplace Relations Commission ‘Meeting Stakeholder Expectations in a Changing World of Work’.
Over the Strategy Statement period 2019-2022, while its fundamental purpose and the services it provided remain unchanged, the WRC has dealt with broad operational and structural challenges and has been required to respond agilely to what has proved a sometimes challenging economic, social and statutory environment.
Through the Strategy Statement 2022-2024 ‘Meeting Stakeholder Expectations in a Changing World of Work’ the WRC will maintain and build on its strong foundations but will continue to innovate, refine and reshape its services, identify and shape good practice.
Among the targets and objectives set by the strategy, covering the years 2022-2024, are:
- WRC will provide an appropriate mix of remote and on-premises working in line with broader Government policy that supports the optimal delivery of services.
- Devise and implement an ICT Strategy that is informed by the changing demand and technological support environment including the development of self-service and automation.
- Communicate to the development of knowledge and debate on the changing nature of the world of work.
- Work with stakeholders and parties to develop and implement best practice generally.
