Careers: a winding path to success -- Further education is now required to succeed -- Will my goals change? -- successful business will have diverse and inclusive workplaces -- Globalisation is facilitating working across borders.
Examines mega-trends that are shaping the economy, business environment and broader society such as globalisation, an ageing population, digital disruption, and the rise of the peer-to-peer economy. Looks at the key themes from a survey of 1,400 Australian employees that asked respondents about employment history, perceptions, career aspirations and plans for the future. Argues that we need to ask ourselves the challenging questions now so that we can not only survive but thrive.
