As Australia’s largest privately-owned electrical engineering company, our continued success is only made possible through the talented and innovative people we employ to energise our world for a sustainable future. Ampcontrol has been rapidly accelerating its expansion in renewable energy manufacturing over the past few years. This has highlighted the need to build a workforce pipeline and align workforce skills to ensure that not only our business, but the industry as a whole can meet its potential for growth in emerging industries.
To address the great workforce challenges, we were pleased to partner with Business Hunter to deliver the Powering Business 2050: emerging industries and the future of work Summit 22-23 June 2022. The Summit program was for businesses and industry wanting to understand what priorities must be built into education, training and workforce development to equip young people as well as transitioning workforces with the types of skills and knowledge they will need to thrive in businesses of the near- and long-term future.
“We have had to be very innovative to attract and retain talent as well as develop our people’s capability ensuring we have the right skills, not only for the now but for the jobs of the future,” says Ampcontrol Executive General Manager – People and Engagement Leigh Stefanszyn. “With a strong focus on research and development and technological advancement, we are continually thinking 3 – 5 years in advance but need to start developing these skills now. We see our association and continued support with education, community, and business as integral to tackling this challenge across the region as we position the Hunter as an energy powerhouse.” We were joined by regional and national experts and leaders in business, as well as education, training and government coming together to power the future of work for generations to come. Help shape the future of Ampcontrol here.
