Aside from the ABS and AWIRS data, other sources on the incidence of ESO schemes in Australia include surveys conducted by private firms, such as Mercer Human Resource Consulting, KPMG and TNS Social Research (for the ESODU).
They have probably not bothered to read the findings of the AWIRS Surveys or other in-depth studies such as the BCA-sponsored study of excellent workplaces.
Although the AWIRS survey collected information on the number of dependent children in specified age groups, information on the number of dependent children was not available in WERS.
The AWIRS study, which was undertaken between October 1989 and May 1990, was extremely wide-reaching in scope, as it:
No papers were found that were specifically aimed at the organisational level of MNEs, with the closest research being the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey (AWIRS) (McGraw and Harley 2003; Walsh 2001), and the Cranfield Network on International Human Resource Management (CRANET) surveys which incorporated Australian data (Gooderham, Nordhaug, and Ringdal 2006; Fenton-O'Creevy, Gooderham, and Nordhaug 2008).
For instance Decry and Walsh (1999) looking at AWIRS 95 data found that while firms with a majority of their non- managerial workforce on individual contracts (common law, state individual contracts) (individualisers) were sophisticated and strategic in their approach, their policies and practices resembled 'hard' HRM rather than its 'soft' counterpart.
By contrast, the 1995 Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey (AWIRS) paints a rather complicated picture (Morehead et al.

For example, the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey (AWIRS)--the most used source of data for analysing labour hire employment--was last conducted in 1995.
VandenHeuvel and Wooden (1999) also point out that the three factors noted above are also predominant when the AWIRS 1995 (Moorehead et al, 1997) data is analysed, particularly where casual employees receive less employer provided training than permanent employees.
