The State of the Retail Workforce: Are they just browsing or will they shop til they drop?
Australia’s retail sector is under considerable strain as the internet disrupts traditional business models and companies come to grips with an ageing population and changing consumer demographics. As these trends increase competition and place pressure on revenues, the question must be asked whether workers in this industry can ‘work to live’ or whether they’re being irrevocably forced to ‘live to work’?

The Ticking Time-bomb in Australia's Nursing Sector
As Australia’s population and average age continues to rise, so too does the demand on our healthcare sector. The industry already faces a significant shortfall of nurses by 2025, and we continue to see worrying reports of understaffing and the consequential stress, burnout and effect on patient care. Kronos' “Nursing Pulse Check” survey reveals 51 per cent of nurses plan to leave the profession in the next ten years and one in five expects to leave within the next five years. Healthcare is a critical service, but as an industry it has often been slow when it comes to the uptake of technology to help better manage operations. While many of us enjoy the promise of flexible hours, new technology and modern working environments, nurses feel stuck in an industry that hasn’t kept up with the technological revolution or embraced the modernisation of the working environment. Now more than ever, the healthcare industry faces a wake-up call to understand how it can better manage workloads, staffing pressures and productivity through the use of technology.
