Businesses must prepare for the workforce of the future
Wellington businesses must prepare for the workforce of the future
The New Zealand labour market is changing rapidly and businesses are beginning to see the impact of increased migration, the rise of the Millennials and a large cohort of aging workers electing to stay in paid employment for longer.
The 2018 Diversity Roadshow: The Workforce of the Future will be in Wellington on April 18, giving local employers the opportunity to find out how they can future proof their business by engaging with employees across a diverse range of ages and cultures.
The roadshow series, which is travelling around New Zealand, is being run by Diversity Works New Zealand in partnership with the New Zealand Chambers of Commerce.
“Diversity and inclusion in the workplace bring many business benefits – a solution to skill shortages, a better ability to connect with customers and clients, better decision making, a more engaged team, higher productivity and a competitive edge, to name a few,” says Diversity Works New Zealand Chief Executive Bev Cassidy-Mackenzie.
“But it also comes with challenges and means organisations must adapt their practices and policies to ensure they have a good employer brand and access to the top talent in their sector.”
Z Energy Talent Manager Julie Fitzgerald will be at this workshop to share how the organisation is bringing graduates and young people into its workforce.
