Understanding Small Enterprises (USE2015) Conference: A Healthy Working Life in a Healthy Business
Small businesses form the backbone of most economies and are attracting increased interest from academics, practitioners, consultants, social partners, government officials, and policy makers. In recent years it has become more and more clear that SMEs are a different breed from large companies, which are the normal subject of business and entrepreneurial research: an SME is not a small big firm.
Demographics dictate that able employees will be at a premium in the future global economy and that keeping them fit and healthy will be a prerequisite for sustained business success. This holds even more true for small companies as they typically lag behind large companies as attractors of talented employees. This leads to the main conference theme: “a healthy working life in a healthy business”.
One of the characteristics of a small business is its interconnectedness with its environment: customers, suppliers, partners, employees, and the communities in which it resides. A small business is more dependent on others in the network in which it operates than a big firm which might be more inclined to dictate its environment. The networked nature of small businesses gives rise to the subtheme of USE2015: Globalisation of SMEs and Corporate Social Responsibility.

The quadrennially held international ICTTP conferences have achieved a long-standing and highly-regarded reputation as the leading international meeting in the field of traffic and transport psychology.
ICTTP2016 is expected to attract 300-350 delegates from around Australia and overseas and will be a global forum at which all those involved in traffic and transport psychology, human factors, cognition and behaviours, road safety research, policy, education, enforcement and injury prevention, can meet with researchers, academics, and professionals to discuss and present on the latest work being undertaken.
The conference theme “Taking Traffic and Transport Psychology to the World” will provide an invaluable opportunity for a broad range of presentations, with a particular focus on geographic regions where road safety action is needed most.
