The Workplace and Industrial Relations team continues to provide advice, guidance and support to management, superiors and employees on personnel and labour relations matters. These include advice on the interpretation of distinctions, certified agreements and other labour law laws, performance management, conflict and malfunction resolution, workplace investigations, and harassment and harassment in the workplace. At Council, we understand that our people are our greatest asset and, with a team of qualified and qualified collaborators, we can continue to offer our community services of the highest quality. As one of the largest employers in the Toowoomba region, it is important that employees are well trained and properly equipped to support the organization. The goal is to have a dedicated and customer-oriented staff, who offer quality services to our community at all times. The Staff Development and Organization Division of the Board manages and supports all personnel matters throughout the Organization. The establishment exists to support our employees, but also remains compliant with industrial instruments, including awards and certified agreements. The Board`s approach to providing a wide range of services is guided by our core values of integrity, respect, accountability and transparency, cooperation and teamwork, innovation and sustainability. This statement is echoed throughout the organization and the results are evident, given that fewer employees are suffering serious injuries, resulting in best-in-class compensation bonuses for workers.
The Board`s organizational development team continued to focus on implementing initiatives that develop the skills and knowledge of our employees in order to reach their potential in their current and future roles. In some countries, SWIFT payments are subject to withholding tax. In accordance with SWIFT`s General Terms and Conditions of Sale, customers are responsible for collecting, notifying and paying this withholding tax. The Labour and Labour Relations team continues to work closely together to assist management and staff in managing human resource management issues, promoting the Board`s core values and practices, and promoting a positive employment relationship. Belgium has concluded double taxation agreements with a number of countries in order to avoid or reduce double taxation. To benefit from the reduced withholding tax rate of a tax treaty, SWIFT must confirm that swift is considered a true Belgian tax. The annual TRCs are therefore issued by the Belgian tax authorities in accordance with the double taxation agreements between Belgium and the countries of our clients. During the period 2016-17, the Toowoomba Regional Council employed more than 1790 people throughout the region in more than 200 trades and roles. The number of Council employees increased from the previous year due to major projects in the area, including the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing, the East Creek Culvert upgrades on Ruthven Street and the Nass Road Detention Basin (TEHSP). The workforce is expected to remain the same in 2017-18.
Although the Security Council remains a priority, an important challenge for the organization is the development of security management, especially within our group of small team leaders. . . .
