The time it takes to find and hire a new employee is growing. Once hired, it can be equally difficult for organisations to manage and keep their employees engaged.

Countries, such as Australia and New Zealand, by the end of this decade will see a net skills drain of people with the skills needed for them to compete and grow in the Newconomy. Going off of this cliff will not be good for business, our economy and society.

With the pace of change in society and organisations being driven by our 4th Industrial Revolution, more organisations will need to transform their number one asset, their people, if they are to be sustainable in the Newconomy. The challenge for organisations now is what skills do we need to up skill our people in when we don't have clarity of the jobs we'll need them to do in the Newconomy.

Our industries, and government are becoming more and more concerned and acutely aware of a predicted net skills drain for our high growth industries in the not-too-distant future.
