About the session
The new work mindset: What the rapidly-changing work landscape means for the not-for-profit workforce
The world of work is in transition to a more global, technology driven, and “flexible” economy in which new professions are being created and traditional jobs are being transformed or swallowed whole by automation. At the same time, Young Australians are increasingly seeking out purpose over financial gain when it comes to employment, with over 88% of people under 25 increasingly searching for job opportunities with a social focus.
So how should NFPs respond to these trends?
In this presentation, Alicia will outline the changing landscape of work, and how this is impacting young Australians and the NFP workforce more broadly. You’ll leave with a clearer view of the future of work, and with a path to reshape your organisation’s hiring practices and team cultures to recognise the passion, skills and capabilities that young Australians have to offer.
