He has a particular passion for developing 3rd sector supply chain performance against contractual expectations, having worked on a variety of differing international model structures with a strong private & NFP grouping.

Currently CEO of Lend a Hand and director of Roberts Consulting Services (Employment Support, Skills and Criminal Justice Sector), Dafydd will discuss  “Stickier Employment” options, that are particularly important to the welfare to work industry at the Australian Long-Term Unemployment Conference this December.

Workplaces have undergone significantly change over the past 100 years, yet new advancement in technology, modern employment structures and ever increasing globalisation interaction between economies has failed to resolve unemployment, moreover long term unemployment remains a persistent thorn of advanced economies with Australia being no exception. This presentation will offer insights and commentary on how the workplace has transformed and what needs to be done to ensure we don’t leave the most in need behind as we further advance our economy and has a particular focus on new and emerging service centered businesses.

Exploring the worker and employer relationship, we will discover how different structures adopted in this new modern global economy are fighting back against outsourcing and cost cutting exercises. With the aid of current case studies that consist of different contracting arrangement (i.e Social Enterprises, Cooperatives and NFP’s). We will show how these lived experiences offer improved outcome rates for the LTU or as we have termed “Stickier Employment” options, that are particularly important to the welfare to work industry.

The 3rd Annual Australian Long-Term Unemployment Conference will be held on 1 – 2 December 2016 at the Mercure Brisbane. This year’s theme is Finding Solutions and focuses on business working together with employment facilitators and agencies to create positive outcomes for Australia’s long-term unemployed.
