Remote hands is the holiday season’s best solution

Acute labour shortages have worsened heading into the holiday season this year, as a National Skills Commission report published last month revealed almost a third of all jobs don’t have enough staff – up from 19 per cent last year. A total of 286 occupations are now in “national shortage”.

Australia has the second most severe labour and skills shortage in the world, according to the OECD, trailing only Canada. The latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics showed that there were as many job vacancies as unemployed people in the country.

While the retail and hospitality sectors are expected to be the worst affected, the labour shortage challenges being experienced in Australia are impacting almost every industry. The combined effect of the slowdown in immigration and a booming economy has left almost half a million jobs unfilled and businesses are scrambling to find a solution to the crisis – especially as we head towards a time when companies are already impacted by staff leave.

For businesses with a mission critical mandate, like data centres or the healthcare sector, keeping the lights on and the network running is a must. Establishing a fail-safe contingency plan is a focus for operational managers across the country, as many turn to external supply partners for a solution. Of course, outsourcing is not a new concept, but finding a trusted, reliable partner can be the real challenge.
