Global Workforce Management: Trends and Strategies for Australian Manufacturers
With the increasing collaboration between manufacturers and foreign governments, many Australian manufacturers will eventually find themselves managing a global workforce. Manufacturers stand to gain considerable competitive advantage and efficiency improvements by developing the local workforce. However, they also face substantial risks if they do not manage local workforces in compliance with labour regulations. This white paper presents findings from joint research conducted by Kronos Incorporated in conjunction with IDC Manufacturing Insights, an independent research analyst firm. It is designed to provide insight into global trade, investment, and workforce trends and best practices as well as to provide recommendations on workforce strategies that Australian manufacturers can employ to improve their global competitiveness.
The State of the Manufacturing Workforce: Will it be make or break?
Australia’s manufacturing sector is under considerable strain to remain competitive against lower-cost international rivals while simultaneously coming to grips with an ageing population, new technologies and increasingly stringent customer and regulatory requirements. As these trends increase competition and place pressure on revenues, the question about the future of the industry from the perspective of manufacturing employees must be asked.
