The New Work Smarts – Thriving in the New Work Order (The Foundation for Young Australians)
“The future is going to look very different.”
At the Federation for Young Australians we believe young people are not a problem to be helped or solved. Young people are ambitious, creative and capable of rethinking the world and solving tomorrow’s problems today. And can do it all with a social conscience that will let them build a better world in the process. The Federation for Young Australians is all about backing the next generation of young people who are going to rethink the world and create a better future.
At FYA we love young changemakers – the innovators, the makers, the dreamers, the thinkers, the doers and the creators”.
Since 2015, the FYA’s ‘New Work Order’ research series has explored the ways in which automation, globalisation and flexibility are changing the way we work, and the implications of these shifts for young Australians.
In the future of work, what we do in every single job, in every occupation will change.
FYA’s latest report, The New Work Smarts, has analysed over 20 billion hours of work completed by 12 million Australian workers each year to reveal the skills that will matter most in 2030 to navigate this shift. The report has revealed that to navigate the new work order our understanding of what it means to be ‘smart’ must change.
