A skilled and high performing workforce is key to Queensland's economic growth. Every Queenslander deserves the opportunity to participate in the workforce.
To seize today's jobs and adapt to future opportunities, we need to do things differently. We need to:
- reimagine our workforce
- rethink our recruitment practices and programs
- give greater value to diversity and inclusivity in the workplace.
The Queensland Government hosted the Reimagining Workforce 2023 event on 17 May 2023 in Brisbane and via livestream.
Reimagining Workforce 2023 followed on from the Queensland Government's highly successful 2022 Queensland Workforce Summit, where over 300 business and community leaders gathered to identify ways forward to address workforce challenges.
The keynote address was delivered by disability advocate and 2022 Australian of the Year, Dylan Alcott.
The event included a panel session and interactive masterclasses with leading Queensland innovators, providing practical examples of how they have successfully reimagined their workplaces to address their workforce challenges.
Reimagining Workforce 2023 is an initiative of the Good people. Good jobs: Queensland Workforce Strategy 2022–2032.
