Event overview

Australia is on the cusp of the next wave of the new industrial revolution. Like previous technologically driven transformation, this revolution has the potential to radically upend business practices, change economic arrangements and dramatically reshape the workforce.

The domestic impact on the average Australian worker will be profound, with modelling suggesting almost five million jobs face a high probability of being replaced in the next decade or two. Emerging technologies are threatening to reshape the economy in very different ways to those of the past and radically impacting the labour market.

CEDA’s major research report for 2015, Australia’s future workforce? examines the key challenges and opportunities Australia’s labour markets face, along with the impacts of digital disruption and the need to better tailor education and training for the industries of the future.

CEDA’s expert presenters will examine:

  • Shaping the future of Australia’s labour markets: examining policy levers to stimulate employment growth;
  • The potential for digital disruption to change the nature of work in Australia;
  • The changes which have occurred in the industrial composition of Australia; and
  • The role of Government in enhancing productivity, and ensuring education and training is suitable for future labour market demands.
