Looking to the Future: How Can You Prepare?

It’s an employee’s world right now and it’s highly competitive. To attract the best workers, you need to be aware – and ready to meet – their increasing demands. Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect from the years ahead, according to global futurist, Professor Ben Hamer.

  • Millennials will be the dominant demographic and largest proportion of managers in the workplace by 2025,
  • The majority of organisations will move out of the CBD, and they’ll be working from satellite areas or neighbourhood business districts by 2030,
  • Permanent, 9-5 staff will be a memory – most of your staff (around 80%) will be temporary,
  • Your workers will demand customised remuneration packages designed to help them meet their personal goals,
  • Workers will also expect their employers to provide 24/7 access to mental health and well-being services,
  • Fair and transparent pay (and bonus) structures will be the norm – there will be no secrets,
  • Purpose will be more attractive to potential workers than profit, they’ll want to know that they’re working with a company with sound environmental and social governance,
  • Rather than you asking for referees, you’ll be expected to provide references from employees who can vouch for the workplace culture and more.

Need to build your talent resource?

Perhaps you need to look further afield. As one of few companies approved by the Australian Department of Immigration to hire and on-hire international workers, we can advise you on the eligibility of any workers you’re considering bringing into the country, then help you arrange the temporary or permanent visas required. To speed things up we can even provide pre-approval of your applicant.

Importantly, if you wish, we can employ the international workers you need then allow you to contract their services, freeing you of the risks associated with visa sponsorship.
