When an employee brings an inappropriate behaviour allegation against a workmate, sometimes it seems everybody suffers. The process is laborious, the situation emotion-laden, and the penalties harsh. That’s without considering the flow-on effects to the workplace and other workers.

“The growing prospect of being subjected to an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investigation is creating fresh challenges for organisations and managers.” Accountability and transparency are critical as regulatory scrutiny and public expectations rise. Organisations must be prepared to balance effective risk management and robust evidence collection with a human-centred approach. Matthew Fleming shared insights with the Governance Institute of Australia.
KordaMentha was engaged to undertake a diagnostic review of South Australia’s largest public healthcare network, CALHN, a circa $2 billion organisation with five main hospitals.
The review uncovered a broken organisation facing systemic financial, operational and cultural issues. Forecasts indicated the funded position would be exceeded by $274 million.
In response, KordaMentha developed a three-year Organisational and Financial Recovery Plan and were engaged as Administrators to implement the Plan. The Plan was designed to reposition CALHN as a modern, high-functioning network, delivering sustainable care for the community.
Network Ten took steps to restructure the business and improve profitability. Ten’s inability to finalise restructured content agreements led to KordaMentha’s appointment as Voluntary Administrators.
KordaMentha took operational control of Network Ten and restructured the working capital profile of the business, which improved working capital funding by circa $40 million over the forecast period. KordaMentha went on to conduct a sale/recapitalisation process resulting in a successful transaction with the US Studio, CBS.
