Meeting current and future workforce needs is one of the biggest challenges facing many WA businesses. The urgency of dealing with the skills crisis and preparing the workforce for the future cannot be underestimated, hence it is a race for industry, education providers and governments. The Committee for Perth tackled this issue in its 2021-2022 major research project Race to the Top. In the resulting report we have six key findings and make 14 recommendations which can be undertaken now through to 2024 to address what is needed immediately and into the future for WA’s economic and social prosperity.
