Let’s face the truth, it can be difficult to read even the most incisive of writing about workplace best practice without nodding off. Agree? You might find the jargon off putting and the heavyweight, overwritten advice near impossible to absorb.

The Little Black Book series has been written with this in mind, and what you’ll find inside is something truly unique - best practice solutions described in a fresh and accessible way. Meaning every manager who engages with people has the opportunity to get the tough stuff right – first time.

The Little Black Book series is not a legal document nor will it guarantee compliance. However, you can be assured that each volume is packed with insights on how your business can best handle workplace complexities and procedural obligations, in day to day operations, and in policy, smartly and professionally – and in line with the law.

The Little Black Book series is tailored to Australian standards but can be adapted to incorporate the requirements of other operating environments, as required.
