Anticipating Future Skills; Jobs Growth & alternative futures for Queensland to 2022
Monday, 03 December 2018 17:37

Jobs Queensland is tasked by the Queensland Government to undertake research and provide advice on future skills needs. The Anticipating Future Skills project, which entails the economic modelling of future scenarios, is one of the ways in which Jobs Queensland is performing this work.

The above body of work, was launched on 6th November by Jobs Queensland.

The results of the report harvested intelligence from a broad range of industry sectors.

The significant ‘take away’ was the importance of workforce planning.  2022 is on our doorstep.

We need to consider:

1.      What does our future workforce look like?

2.      As an employer, do I need to re-assess workforce needs?

3.      What skills does/will our workforce require?

In considering these questions, we also need to consider where economic development dissects.  Do I have an adaptable Business model to be able to meet future business needs/growth?

With the future of work changing, there is no doubt that Jobs are a thing of the future!
