Averting the Next Corporate Crisis – Remediating Australia’s Growing Skills Shortage
October 21 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm AEDT
Workforce changes have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, magnifying existing challenges and trends. Increasingly, organisations are recognising the need to transform the skills of their employees which represents both a huge potential challenge but also a great opportunity to future-proof their workforce.
McKinsey research completed in 2019 indicates that a quarter to a half of Australia’s current jobs might be automated by 2030. Jobs that are not fully automated will change; with people expected to spend about 60 per cent more time working with technology. The recent McCrindle Report also highlights that Generation Alpha (born between 2010 and 2025) will be seeking work opportunities in occupations that currently don’t exist. These insights present an opportune time to examine how industry and education can work together and respond to current and future workforce skills development.
As industry leaders and those tackling that change head-on, we’d love your outlook on what challenges you are facing and what we need to be doing both individually and collectively moving forward.
