To better understand Australian workers’ views towards the future of work, the Centre for the New Workforce conducted a study with our research partner YouGov. In November 2018, we asked 1,000 Australian workers about their attitudes to work, their perceptions about how work is changing, and how they are preparing for the future. To gain deeper insight, we analysed the results against comparable research from organisations including McKinsey, World Economic Forum, AiGroup and Deloitte.
Within this report, we provide expert analysis and recommendations on how policy makers, educators and employers can help pave the way for a successful future for Australia’s workforce.
The report contains three sections:
Section 1 presents the survey results
Section 2 segments the results to examine generational and sectoral perspectives of the future of work, and provides analysis into what these results mean for Australia’s workers
Section 3 makes recommendations on how Australia can build a national workforce for the digital economy
