Brisbane home to best paid
The median salary packages for OH&S managers in Brisbane is
significantly higher than that of Sydney
and Melbourne, according to
Sydney median is just under $102K
and in Melbourne is $109 K but in
Brisbane the median recorded among
the survey participants was $121,535.
“One has to deduce that the resources sector is well
represented in Queensland and that there may be a correlation
between riskier workplaces and the rate of reward offered to
those given responsibility for managing them,” said David Owens,
managing partner, HR Partners.
Bosses are being bullied
It’s not just bosses who do the
bullying– a recent survey has revealed
that one in four Australian bosses are
being bullied by their employees.
Office gossip, withholding information,
and intentionally missing deadlines are
among the tactics cited in a recent
survey by Griffith University.
The study into staff who target and
harass their managers – a behaviour termed “upwards bullying” –
found other common bullying tactics included spreading
workplace rumours, skipping meetings, and ignoring the views
and opinions of managers.
