Sharon Collins, Co-Founder & MD – My Career Lab

With organisational transformation and automation so high on the agenda, corporate Australia must be concerned about whether they have the skills and capabilities they need to be successful in the future.

Many companies are spending up big working with consulting firms to understand the impact automation will have on their workforce. They have mapped out what roles are to be automated, what roles will transition and ultimately what roles will disappear.

There is plenty of analysis going on but little action, so what steps can we take to address these problems?

Employers must move away from recruiting ready-made skills and invest in up-skilling and re-skilling their existing workforce.

Taking action to transition employees into new roles requires considerable investment, but it is less costly and disruptive than the alternative – making redundancies, competing for in- demand talent and time to productivity.

That’s why we have established My Career Lab!

My Career Lab has a unique and trusted solution to help you understand, adapt and mobilise your workforce, ensuring they have the confidence, skills and credentials they need to be successful. We move beyond a narrow focus on retraining towards employability.

We are currently piloting programs with some of Australia’s largest companies – we take an agile approach, we run experiments, we make it simple.

If you’re looking for an easily accessible, cost-effective and ready to run re-skilling solution, My Career Lab can help.
