Skills roundtable

The Hub facilitated a skills roundtable at the 2023 AusRAIL conference, presenting new research by Oxford Economics which forecast a 'stronger for longer' rail skills shortage. 

Broad endorsement was given for a collaborative skills program focused on improving the mobility, diversity and digital competency of Australia's rail workforce.

Roundtable attendees noted strategies that had been used successfully to help attract and keep workers. These included:

  • greater flexibility around rostering
  • opportunities to job share
  • inclusion and diversity programs supported at a high level
  • mentoring programs
  • the practice of hiring cohorts of minorities rather than single workers.

Targeted events

A calendar of the Hub's 2024 workshops and, forums and roundtable will be posted soon.
