In a rapidly evolving work landscape, Australian businesses are at a crucial crossroads.

36% of Australian workers say Australia is the most innovative country in the world.

Drawing on insights from a survey of more than 2,000 Australian knowledge workers, our report delves into the challenges that Australian workers and businesses face in navigating the next era of the future of work. This report reveals the critical decisions leaders must make to shape and innovate their organisations’ future. These include:

  1. Fragmented and cluttered technology stacks: In addition to unproductive meetings and outdated collaboration practices, Australian businesses are grappling with fragmented technology stacks. Teams working in silos with preferred tools lose significant time every day on basic tasks.
  2. AI’s untapped potential: There’s a lot of optimism surrounding AI in the Australian workplace and its potential to enhance work. Australian executives are even more enthusiastic about AI than their US counterparts.
  3. More AI fundamentals needed: Despite this optimism, some of the fundamentals around AI are lacking. In particular, the reality on the ground shows a lack of alignment between executives and individual contributors, stymieing effective AI implementation.

Learn how to lead your organisation’s innovation journey. Australian businesses have historically been at the forefront of innovation. As we look to 2024 and beyond, it’s clear that navigating these challenges requires more than incremental changes; it demands a bold reimagining of work practices.
