More Effective Franchise Advisory Councils & Franchise System Governance
This workshop will explore, with the involvement of attendees, practices to improve Franchise Advisory Council and franchise system governance effectiveness. The workshop will consider the structure and management of key Franchise Advisory Council processes, and the intersection between Franchise Advisory Councils and franchisor governance.
Keeping Your Mature Franchisee Fully Engaged
The majority of franchisees have been members of their franchise network for over years, which means they have substantial experience in the operations of their business. It also means that many of them will have more experience than members of the current franchisor team, and can bring a sceptical approach to the franchise relationship. In this interactive workshop, Greg Nathan will explore ways to creatively engage these mature franchisees and harness their knowledge and experience.
Workplace Compliance throughout the Franchise System
This workshop will cover the following topics:
- Minimum Employment law Obligations for Franchising
- The Proposed Modern Slavery and Worker Exploitation legislation
- How to Interact with MBIE and the Labour Inspectorate
- Case Study: Super Liqour
Overview of the Privacy Act & Proposed Fair Pay Agreements Bill
Patrick Learmonth & Vaughan Granier
Patrick will provide an overview of the Privacy Act, specific issues that arise and how to respond to and how not to respond to the privacy complaint/query. Vaughan will give an overview on the fair pay agreements bill which is currently at select committee stage and what this will likely mean for employers should the bill be passed. This bill would set out a framework for collective bargaining for fair pay agreements across entire industries or occupations, rather than just between unions and particular employers.
The business environment is critical to our success, our speakers will provide an update on all the latest changes relevant to creating a successful business in New Zealand.
