We live in turbulent times where employment and the future world of work is transforming.
Working Futures™ works to assist clients to design a more human-centric approach to developing the capabilities required to harness each person’s true potential, solve complex problems, and meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Building human capabilities
Ongoing technological change and market turbulence mean we must build skills for sustained employment for which no job title exists today. We also need to raise everyone’s workforce capability and employability in addition to their job performance competence.
Using capabilities to raise workforce capacity
Everyone has unlocked potential. By focusing on competencies or explicit knowledge alone, we miss a person’s true talent and potential.
Designing authentic educational experiences
The relationship between educational providers (particularly universities), students, and employers must change. Qualifications often fail to align with today’s sought after skills, or they simply focus on technical skills over the human attributes an employer seeks.
Matching people to employers and sustainable careers
A skills mismatch exists and it’s driven by inefficient education and human capital allocation systems. The skills often exist but employers cannot find the person with the skill, or the person’s documented qualifications or experience fail to match the outcomes employers seek in a given industry or location.
Who are we?
We are a private company committed to investigating the future of work, learning and the capabilities successful organisations, regions and individuals require.
