Effective voice is much more than just having a channel of communication available within organisations - though this is important.
Effective voice requires a safe environment where dialogue and challenge are dealt with constructively and where employee views are sought out, listened to and can make a difference.
It is a reasonable aspiration to want work that is fair - and for fair work to be available to everyone. Fair opportunity allows people to access and progress in work and employment and is a crucial dimension of fair work
Meeting legal obligations in terms of ensuring equal access to work and equal opportunities in work sets a minimum floor for fair work.
Security of employment, work and income are important foundations of a successful life.
Predictability of working time is often a component of secure working arrangements.
While no one has complete security and stability of employment, income and work, security is an important aspect of fair work.
For many people, work is a fulfilling part of their life. For others, work tasks, working conditions and the work environment make work unfulfilling.
Access to work that is as fulfilling as it is capable of being is an important aspiration of the Fair Work agenda. People have different views of what type of work is fulfilling for them.
Fair work is work in which people are respected and treated respectfully, whatever their role and status.
Respect involves recognising others as dignified human beings and recognising their standing and personal worth.
At its most basic, respect involves ensuring the health, safety and well-being of others.
