TRANSFORMING INDUSTRY RELATIONSHIPS
Within forestry, stakeholder relationships in supply chain have consistently been recognised as critical, but influence factors in workplace like wellbeing, health and safety. While the dynamics are often different between corporate and smaller-scale operations, one fact remains:
"The relationship between Principals and Contractors is critical to industry success"
Contracts are the foundation for these industry relationships and it is essential that a strong culture between these partners is maintained.
