Aged Care: Australia’s largest Employer?.
A recent CSIRO report has revealed that the aged care sector is set to be one of Australia’s biggest employers in the near future.
CSIRO economist, Dr Andrew Reeson, stated, “the people skills, the interpersonal skills, the caring skills – they’re actually the ones that are increasingly in demand in the industry.”
Technology is soon to advance in the sector, meaning that more people can be cared for and more quickly.
Dr Reeson says technology can help to take out the more routine aspects of care staff’s work and leave them to focus on the services that “add more value; the interpersonal services, really caring for people.”
We’re looking forward to what the future has in store for our industry, so we can help you have a better future.
