The Workforce of the Future: What Workers REALLY Want: Winning the War for Talent

In this session we’ll explore PwC Australia’s research into the priorities of Australian workers – drawing on a survey of more than 1,800 Australians – and how those priorities change across gender, generation and geography. And, as the power dynamic between organisations and workers continues to change, we’ll also learn more about the growing expectation gap between what leaders believe workers want, versus what they’re actually looking for.

Our presenters, Caitlin Guilfoyle, Future of work Growth Play Leader, and Gabriel Harris, Partner in Financial Services Consulting, will also showcase PwC’s award-winning collaboration with Western Sydney University to create an Operations Delivery Centre in Paramatta, which exclusively employs undergraduate and post-graduate students. We will conclude with a member-only Q&A.
