The People, Learning and Culture Unit was responsible for the delivery of a wide range of people services including workforce planning, recruitment, pay and conditions, performance management, learning and development, work health and safety and workplace diversity.

One of the key human resources management challenges in this reporting period was the Machinery of Government change from ABCC into the new agency, Fair Work Building & Construction. The implementation of a detailed project plan ensured a very successful transition and minimal disruption to staff.

Another key initiative in this reporting period was the commencement of a collaboration project with the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) to investigate opportunities for shared efficiencies in office support functions. A major outcome of this project was the outsourcing of the ABCC payroll to FWO.
