A study by Accenture ranks Australia 7th in ‘skills readiness’, behind countries like Brazil, China and India.
Only 47% of Australian, compared to 71% of Indians, who participated in the study, felt they are well equipped to face the challenges of a global business environment. With an overall score of 3.7 Australia is placed under the ‘nearing readiness’ category. On a more positive note Australians executives scored highest in areas of social responsibility, inclusion and diversity.
69% of survey participants have working relationships outside of their countries. The challenge is to ensure the Australian workforce will be prepared for an increasingly globalised business scenario.
