CEDA - Future of Work - building a future-ready workforce

Event Date: 
17 July 2018
Grand River Ballroom, Pan Pacific Perth
207 Adelaide Terrace

This event, the second in CEDA WA’s Future of Work series, examines short, medium and long-term opportunities for training and re-skilling a future-proofed workforce.

Technological advances such as automation, robotics and artificial intelligence, unprecedented in both scale and pace, are dramatically reshaping our workforce and workplace. The world is becoming a faster changing and more turbulent place for organisations, and the necessity to adapt has never been greater.

CEDA’s influential 2015 research report – Australia’s future workforce – found technology could make almost 40 per cent of Australian jobs, including highly skilled roles, redundant in 10 to 15 years. CEDA WA’s 2018 Future of Work series continues discussions outlined in the research by exploring key themes paramount to Australia’s economic growth and diversity. Speakers from the most forward-thinking companies will profile how they are preparing for the future of work.

This event will see experts examine:
- how current education and training institutions are preparing for evolving and emerging industries
- what skills are increasingly relevant and desired by future-focused businesses
- examples of successful industry and training institution cross-collaboration initiatives
- if Australia should consider increasing its use of foreign workers and hosting their operations overseas to fill a knowledge and skills shortage
