About Future Working
Digital tools and machines will replace many process jobs over the next decade. They will create both efficiency and dislocation, requiring businesses and employees to think differently about their careers and the training and education that skills them. International research now being replicated in Australia shows close to half of all occupations are at risk from technological disruption. New technology will also unleash new creative forces and inspire new waves of entrepreneurialism, creating both challenges and opportunities while maintaining pressure on work-life balance. The winners will be the enterprises and individuals that can maximise their use of new technology while drawing on human strengths that can set them apart.
