APG Workforce CEO challenges traditional 9 to 5, five-day working week
APG Workforce CEO Glenn Redman is calling on Australian employers to rethink the need for their people to be sitting in an office five days a week, instead focusing on what individual workers need to achieve without a set time allocated. Noting that APG Workforce has employed many displaced workers, both skilled and unskilled, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Glenn says that Australian employers have a once in a lifetime opportunity to rethink how they manage their workforces moving forward.
“In our experience employees who are task-driven and self-motivated can easily work from anywhere as long as they have an internet connection and the right tools and equipment. Our current situation has proved it,” he added.
CMR Civil Workforce CEO: Skills shortages to threaten major infrastructure projects
CMR Civil Workforce CEO David Stack has called for contractors responsible for the many large-scale state and federal government infrastructure projects to put the right workforce management planning strategies in place to ensure they avoid a critical skills shortage.
Commenting in both Architecture & Design and The Fifth Estate, David noted that contractors in the civil construction and wider construction sector need to plan ahead to ensure their projects aren’t delayed due to skills or staffing shortages. “We have had a large influx of people looking for work but they need to be trained and gain certification in order to work on these infrastructure projects.
