Rapid advances in technology are changing the way companies in Australia and worldwide do business and to remain competitive globally leaders should continue to employ a flexible staffing strategy that combines permanent and contract employees, according to recruitment firm Robert Half.
A degree may no longer be enough in the eyes of an employer as organisations prioritise technical and soft skills to further their business transformation goals, according to new research which reveals that hiring managers forecast it will be more challenging to find qualified professionals in the coming five years - despite 68% of the Australian population holding a qualification.
Australian businesses are being held back by the country’s tech skills shortage, with many businesses now looking to skilled migration and contract workers to lift pressure on their workforce needs, according to one recruitment firm.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)

5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
