AustCham & DFDL: Trust, Engagement and the Employment Relationship | 6 December 2017 | Yangon

DFDL’s Danyel Thomson, Head of the Regional Employment Practice Group along with Antony Campbell, Director of Professional Development, were the keynote speakers at a breakfast seminar organized by Austcham in Yangon, Myanmar on December 6. The key topics under discussion centered upon how clear and legally compliant documentation helps to establish and maintain a trustful, engaging, and mutually co-operative employment relationship.

In particular, Danyel discussed how employers can use their internal regulations where the law is silent to not merely protect themselves, but also to provide instructions and guidance for situations where issues arise, which in turn sets expectations and creates a trustful and predictable working environment. The seminar was well attended by a range of foreign entities and INGOs, and led to engaging discussion on the topics presented.

Trust in the workplace has proven to greatly boost productivity and have a positive impact on employees by increasing engagement and reducing stress.
