Jobs Queensland has released a new report outlining findings and recommendations relevant to future work in Queensland.

Jobs Queensland’s Chair Professor Peter Coaldrake said Future work, future jobs: Preparing Queensland for the evolution of work examines the changing world of work from a Queensland perspective.

“This is a critical time to ensure Queensland and its future generations are positioned to be leaders and thrive in the economy of the future,” Professor Coaldrake said.

“There are a range of factors impacting Queensland industries and regions from technological changes and globalisation to social factors including shifting demographics.

“These drivers of change are not new, but what is unfamiliar is the speed and extent of the changes being felt across the state.

“It is critically important for Queensland that its employment and skills policy framework evolves with its changing economy and labour market.

“The continuation of forward-looking economic development strategies, innovative skills programs, equitable access to training and a focus on lifelong learning are all steps needed to empower employers and individuals to navigate this changing landscape.”

Future work, future jobs makes 18 recommendations across five key action areas to ensure individuals and businesses are equipped and supported to harness future opportunities.
