Deirdre Therese Farr MMgt (HRM), PGDipBusAdmin (HRM), BA(BusPsych)

Supernumerary Assistant Lecturer

School of Management

I am a lecturer and PhD candidate in the School of Management. Teaching HRM compliments my PhD research aimed at exploring ‘employee voice’ and participation in Employment Relations and Occupational Health and Safety.  

This follows three years of balancing part-time research with full-time work as a Health and Safety Analyst in the forestry industry. My research journey started in 2009 with work on two projects focusing on employer behaviours and attitudes to: collective bargaining, and legislative changes. My most recent research collaboration involves testing the ‘Good Employer’ concept developed in my Masters Thesis.
