International Consortium for Research on Employment and Work (iCREW)

The International Consortium for Research on Employment and Work (iCREW) builds on a long tradition of excellence in the fields of industrial/employment relations, work and human resources research at Monash University that began in the University’s early years led by the late the Hon. Emeritus Professor Joe Isaac, AO, FASSA. This tradition includes a legacy from the former Australian Consortium for Research in Employment and Work as well as the former National Key Centre in Industrial Relations, which the Australian Research Council (ARC) had established at Monash in the 1980s.

iCREW promotes research and scholarship in the broad area of work, employment relations and human resources. Our key aim is the promotion of interdisciplinary and collaborative research in a range of fields including human resources, industrial and workplace relations.

We encourage projects in the private, not-for-profit and government sectors, especially with a view to producing high-quality publications. Our projects typically have an impact on society by contributing to enhanced organisational performance, improved wellbeing for organisational stakeholders, and the improvement of public policy.
