Future Workforce strategy


Future Workforce Strategy (AUS).jpg

program overview

The Future Workforce Strategy Program is an initiative supported by the Minerals Council of Australia to help increase sector competitiveness, workforce innovation, and develop capabilities for the future. When the capabilities to operate successfully in the future are different to those today, how will your organisation manage and adapt to the opportunities and risks of technology, workforce, and sector change? This three-part program provides a facilitated opportunity for senior managers to think strategically and plan for the future workforce of your organisation while addressing issues of today. The FWS Program is designed around four themes of creating purpose, unlocking potential, capabilities of the future, and the collaboration imperative. Through these themes, participants will assess and develop the organisational and individual ability to build and reconfigure internal and external capabilities to respond to rapidly changing external environments, globally and in our sector. Importantly, each participating organisation will develop a strategy map throughout the program to create a future ready workforce.
