This week, Interstaff had the pleasure of presenting on the topic, ‘Reimagining Skilled Migration’ at the 2018 WA HR Leadership Forum. As you may know, this year’s replacement of the 457 Visa scheme with the Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) Subclass 482 Visa and broader changes in Australia’s migration arrangements have presented key challenges for Human Resource teams striving to attract and retain top overseas talent.
The process to sponsor visa holders has become more complex, restrictive and costly with new labour market testing requirements, increasingly limited skilled occupation lists and additional costs associated with the Skilling Australians Fund.
At the WA HR Leadership Forum, Interstaff shared insights on how organisations must now reimagine:
- How to engage overseas skilled workers under Australia’s new migration framework without the certainty of a permanent stay
- How to attract top overseas talent while competing with global organisations operating under migration legislation in the UK, USA, Canada and New Zealand
- How organisations need to evolve to support future labour needs for skills and experience not easily found locally
During our presentation at the WA HR Leadership Forum, our Managing Director, Sheila Woods shared insights on the fundamental shifts in Australia’s migration landscape and the ways in which organisations should re-evaluate their workforce planning in consideration of Australian and global migration trends.
