Media Brief - August 2015

  1. 1. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation A CXC Global Knowledge Initiative Monthly Media Brief Employment | The Economy | Contract Work August 2015
  2. 2. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation THE ECONOMY The following, a summary of the coverage around the economic outlook for Australia for the period: August – mid September 2015.
  3. 3. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation Economic Outlook The RBA said the weakening Aussie dollar is helping to stimulate growth in the non-mining sector as Australia adjusts from a decade long period in mining investment, towards stronger growth in exports 1 For the first time in 2 years, the RBA says the Aussie dollar isn’t overvalued suggesting further interest rate cuts are unlikely to be needed 2 The dollar has fallen to its lowest level in six years3
  4. 4. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation Economic Outlook Multiple sources report that interest rates will remain low for many years. This is due to the shift away from mining investment, ongoing weak growth, the need for lower policy rates and lower Aussie dollar to accommodate the rebalancing of the economy
  5. 5. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation Economic Outlook Policy makers are becoming confident that the post-mining boom is gaining steam, with recent strong data including hiring Australia’s economy is growing at 2% YoY as it continues to transition to non-mining sources of growth… Trading conditions and profitability are showing improvement in Australian listed companies, but the employment index sits stagnant. This adds to the mounting evidence that the AUD depreciation and record low interest rates are having the desired effect by helping to offset the weakness in mining.
  6. 6. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation Economic Outlook Australia’s spending in online retail to the 12 months to July 2015 was $17.4 billion. This is equivalent to 7.1% of spending at traditional bricks & mortar retailers as measured by the ABS in the 12 months to June 2015 (excludes cafes, restaurants & take-away foods) Business conditions point to improvement in the non-mining economy, even though the financial markets have been jittery ONLINE RETAIL
  7. 7. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation Economic Outlook PwC is foreseeing personalised interest rates as a thing of the future. Algorithm intelligence will predict the right interest rates based on an individual’s circumstances. This is on the back of ongoing conversations about big data, what’s called ‘fintech’ where technology is translating to cheaper prices (for cash), faster transactions, leaving the end-consumer with more power than ever before. Empower Consumers
  8. 8. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation The displacement of hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria, is causing concern for the European Union who are split on the process & quotas of refugees to accept. With an ageing population, there is speculation that labour woes on the Continent may be relieved through the mass migration. The discontent within the EU has the British Prime Minister questioning their very membership thereof, in a bid to retain autonomy around decisions for refugee displacement Globally….  The RBA was slightly more upbeat about trading partner China, suggesting threats to growth in the world’s second biggest economy had ‘receded somewhat  Global growth remains sluggish with tempered forecasts with weaker than expected results coming out of Canada, India & Brazil  The pace of growth in advanced economies has improved. In contrast, Japan and the Euro zone are not growing strongly, and Canada is in recession  Emerging markets are driving most global growth, yet they are slowing with falling trade volumes and softer commodity prices eroding incomes, spending and outputs across East Asia, Latin America and South Africa Economic Outlook
  9. 9. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation JOBS OUTLOOK The following, a summary of the coverage around jobs outlook for Australia for the period: July 2015.
  10. 10. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation Rise in job ads in August 2015, compared to the previous year, according to SEEK +11% Jobs Outlook
  11. 11. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation Jobs Outlook Clear declines in jobs are evident in WA and NT. SA is softening, despite lesser reliance on mining, but heavier on manufacturing Non-mining economies are showing jobs strength in the ACT, NSW, TAS & VIC
  12. 12. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation Farming, animals& conservation +32% Jobs Outlook Wage growth in Australia hits record low – in the private sector, at just 0.5% for the second consecutive quarter. The public sector had slightly better growth at 0.57% for the same period. Ordinarily, an increase in hours worked would be accompanied by improvement in wages, but instead the opposite has occurred. The reason being an increase in the space capacity of the labour market +26% +23% Design& architecture 22% callcentrer& customerservice Education& training As resources roles decline, there’s uptake in other industries….

  14. 14. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation Developing an appealing working environment is key to attracting & retaining talent.

  15. 15.

Now they work in a global market thanks to platforms like Elance/Odesk and Freelancer. Contract Work
  16. 16. Fusion PowerPoint Presentation In 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor found that 65 percent of employers anticipate an increase in the use of flexible staffing arrangements to meet their future talent needs The slowing of the US economy has seen many traditional workers taking up the opportunities afforded by contract, freelance & gig based work. Including… • renting rooms on Airbnb • making goods for Etsy • completing tasks on Airtasker Many worry about the safety of ongoing work, but largely are happier as an active participant in the gig economy than working for an individual boss Contract Work
