TECHNOLOGY VISION 2016: AN AUSTRALIAN PERSPECTIVE


Overview

How change-ready is your workforce?

By exploiting technology to enable workforce transformation, leading companies will create highly adaptable and change-ready enterprise environments that are able to meet today’s dynamic digital demands.

This liquid workforce competitive advantage is apparent as IT and business executives surveyed report that 'deep expertise for the specialised task at hand' was only the fifth most important characteristic they required for employees to perform well in a digital work environment – other qualities such as ‘the ability to quickly learn’ or ‘shift gears’ were ranked higher.

"37% of Australian executives believe that in three years the proportion of workers in their organisation will shift towards significantly more flexible, multi-skilled employees - more than their global peers (29%), China (21%) and Japan (15%). "

SHIFTS IN STATE

Workforces are increasingly comprised of partners, contractors and freelancers.

Australian executives are expecting internal permanent positions to make up just 51% of their workforce within three years - roughly in line with the global result of 56%. A major driver of this is a shift from continuous job functions to transient project-based roles – in our research, 84% agreed that the workforce of the future would be structured more around projects than job functions.
