Work with Purpose | Episode #74 | 2 January 2022


Change is now the new normal, whether it is in response to an external shock, or internally generated to capitalise on an emerging strategic opportunity. With change, comes a need for meaningful workforce transformation.

In this special re-run episode, we revisit the conversation we brought to our listeners in August 2022. The conversation explores the topic of workforce transformation and the skills that leaders need to make it stick.

We were joined by Adam Canwell, Oceania Workforce Advisory Leader at EY Australia, Dr Andrew White, a Senior Fellow in Management Practice at the Oxford University’s Saïd Business School, and Harinder Sidhu, the Australian High Commissioner to New Zealand at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Discussed in this episode:

  • Findings of recent studies in workforce transformation.
  • Factors that are necessary for a successful workforce transformation.
  • Workforce transformation in the Australian public service.
