20 DHB Employment Relations Conference 2021


DHB Health Sector Employment Relations Conference 2021

Thinking and acting as one

The 2021 DHB Health Sector Employment Relations Conference will take place on 20-21 May in Wellington.

This year our teams are involved in major MECA bargaining, pay equity settlements, and Holiday Act remediation, as well as contributing to the management, organisation and implementation of the largest mass immunisation programme in New Zealand’s history, all alongside implementation of the upcoming Health and Disability System Review transition.

This conference is our opportunity to understand the 2021-22 landscape, and ensure we move forward confidently and consistent with the 20 DHB Employment Relations Strategy 2019-2024, and the Government’s expectations of employment relations in the State sector.

We will have a line-up of relevant guest speakers and a choice of breakout sessions covering the changing ER landscape, collective bargaining, industrial relations frameworks and other specific information for the Health ER/HR practitioner. 


Thursday 20 May - Friday 21 May 2021

Day 1: 10.30am - 7pm
Day 2: 8.45am - 3pm


The conference is open to our DHB ER/HR colleagues, and is limited to 80 participants


Wharewaka Function Centre
Level 1, 2 Taranaki Street, Taranaki Wharf, Wellington



The two-day conference programme will be uploaded here soon.  Registrations will then open, and be managed, through this website.
