The cover of Good Works

Good Works: The Catholic Church as an Employer in Australia was written by the Australian Catholic Council for Employment Relations (ACCER) and launched in May 2015. The Catholic Church is one of Australia's largest employers with over 180,000 employees spread across a range of dioceses, congregations and agencies, employing two percent of the Australian workforce. This book articulates the mission and values of Catholic employment and provides practical advice about how good employment relations can be achieved. Good Works details previous encyclicals about work and includes sections on the importance of work, work-life balance, the principles underpinning the Church's social teaching on work and the employment relationship.
