15.04.2021New report shows need for learning and collaboration in Australian workplaces

Australian workers and their businesses are at high risk of being left behind unless employers make significant changes to their workplaces post-COVID, according to a first of its kind Australian survey by Swinburne University of Technology’s Centre for the New Workforce (CNeW)

Committee for Melbourne CEO Martine Letts FAIIA contributed to the launch event today. “I strongly support a key recommendation of this report that organisations transform their physical workplace as a place for innovation,” she said.

The report found that sharing knowledge and expertise between colleagues boosted idea incubation by up to 31 per cent. Only a third of working Australians said their workplace encouraged learning from colleagues in the workplace.
