Skills urgency - Transforming Australia’s workplaces report
This report frames the Australian skills landscape as one facing much change and in need of urgent attention. It outlines some of the strains on companies, strategies being applied, and connections being made with education and training systems. It offers some model workforce development approaches and includes leading initiatives being taken by companies to meet skills challenges. Finally the report discusses the need for intensified action in key areas not new to many, but seen by Ai Group as insurmountable without new levels of engagement across the broad skill ecosystem. Ai Group is using the skill ecosystem concept loosely to emphasise the inter-dependency of component actors when getting the skills equation right - including companies and industry, education and training providers and systems, policy settings and governments, and individuals and community.
