Centre for Workforce Futures
Trusted research for managing workforce challenges
Today's employers, employees, workplace regulators and legislators face very complex workforce challenges. To achieve the best outcomes for individual organisations and for the economy, generally, they need to understand and address a variety of critical issues affecting employee engagement and productivity. These issues include:
- Globalisation, increased competition and migration
- Recruitment, selection and development of employees
- Skill shortages
- Employment relations
- Managing intercultural relationships within and between organisations
- Achieving gender equity
- An ageing workforce
- Work/family balance
- Engaging with social media
- Workplace and workforce development
- Labour supply implications of population pressures on housing, transport and services
All of these modern concerns have a direct and significant impact on employee satisfaction, employer profitability and national competitiveness.
Without specialist expertise and access to relevant research in all of these areas, managing any of them is virtually impossible.
The Centre for Workforce Futures represents one of the Asia Pacific's leading concentrations of expertise in the fields of: human resource management, employment relations, labour economics, demography, labour law and management strategy.
