Special Off The Record – Julia Gillard Prime Minister Designate
The federal Australian Labor Party now has a new Leader and soon Australia will have a new Prime Minister – Julia Gillard. Gillard was elected unopposed when Kevin Rudd bowed to the inevitable of his Party room and elected not to run against his Deputy in a Party room ballot for the Party Leadership. Treasurer Wayne Swan will join her as Deputy Leader and soon to be Deputy Prime Minister – he was also elected unopposed. In politics, it’s all about the numbers. Kevin Rudd started the week by launching Sh*tstorm – the book.  By the end of the week, he and his office had created a sh*tstorm of their own. It seems just months ... market research, surveys and trends
Resource of the Week: European Foundation for the Improvement of ...
Eurofound is an official European Union (EU) body which defines its role as a provider of “information, advice and expertise – on living and working conditions, industrial relations and managing change in Europe – for key actors in the field of EU social policy on the basis of comparative information, research and analysis.” It will quickly be seen that this statement potentially covers an enormous amount of ground, and in fact this potential is realised. This is to the advantage of researchers, as Eurofound is a site from which it is possible to glean a great deal of information on social and economic life, both ... market research, surveys and trends

Greens candidate says Coalition statements on Workchoices ring hollow
The Coalition is just not believable on industrial relations, The Greens candidate for Wide Bay, Jim McDonald, said today. “Until we hear statements from key Coalition figures, including the Leader of the Nationals, that they will promote collective bargaining in the workplace there will always be a fear that an Abbott Government will reintroduce their oppressive workplace laws. “Tony Abbott had hardly finished telling the electorate that the Coalition's policy on workplace relations was dead when Senator Eric Abetz said the Coalition will tinker with Labor's Fair Work laws.” He said the central plank of The ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Australia Prime Minister Gillard Not Your Average Leader
It’s too soon to hand down a verdict on Julia Gillard's performance as Australia's first female prime minister, but as we're in the discovery stage, I must say I really like this woman. She's got spunk. She's won't roll over for anyone. She knows how to give as good as she gets with aplomb. You must know by now that Gillard is 48, unmarried and as I always put it, child-free (NOT, childless). She's overcome not one but three Kilimanjaro-sized obstacles to lead her land where swashbuckling and crocodile-hunting are still in vogue. Australia is about where our wild west was in the 19th ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
