André Reynolds – Founder, Grow@ App & HR Consultant to the facilities services industry.

Strategic insights into the application of Part 6a of the Employment Relations Act (Transfer of Undertaking) or perhaps just “Part 6A: Strategic Insights” if this is a familiar term amongst the members.

On 1 July 2021 many security designations are to be included in occupations to which Part 6a applies. André will be offering insights into some of the strategic issues that emerged through the operation of this process in the commercial cleaning industry, having been exposed to this through his former role as GM People for OCS Limited and in his current work as an HR Consultant. This presentation is not a legal overview into the provisions of the Act, but rather a presentation and discussion regarding the practicalities of Part 6a, and the potential pitfalls and opportunities that these provisions may provide.

Speaker Bio
André Reynolds – Founder, Grow@ App & HR Consultant to the facilities services industry.

André’s 25-year corporate career as a human resources professional in the facilities services and hospitality industries have exposed him to the persistent business problem of labour supply – along with the reality of limited prospects of progression for entry level workers, and their daily struggle to achieve sustainable employment. The Grow@ App represents a solution to these problems, both for employers seeking lower-skilled work and for employees seeking opportunity. It has been designed by André as an initial step towards a solution to employment that offers a low employee value proposition, and to employees seeking growth through a waged career.
