Our projects

The Centre for Workforce Futures brings an innovative multidisciplinary and problem-focused approach to research relating to the workforce and workplace, with application to public policy, industry and the community. The Centre has assembled one of the largest concentrations of expertise in the Asia Pacific region across its core disciplines of Human Resource Management, Employment Relations, Labour Economics, Demography and Labour Law. It also draws substantially from the Marketing discipline in areas such as employer branding.

We've adopted a holistic research paradigm, considering the entire life-course of the individual, incorporating both paid and unpaid work (including education and child rearing), how individuals transition back and forth between the two, why they do, and how it impacts their lives, their workplace, the workforce and society.
