Emeritus Professor Keith Sisson, of the Industrial Relations Research Unit of WBS, has been appointed the Head of Strategy Development for the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas). This new post, following a major change programme at Acas, will ensure that Acas contributes its practical expertise in employment relations to national and international public policy formulation. Keith said: "I don’t think I could have chosen a more exciting time to be joining Acas. There is a growing recognition that employment relations really matters – it’s the management of people inside organisations that makes the difference and is the key to the government delivering on many of its policy objectives."
