The ‘silver lining’ to the COVID-triggered skilled labour shortage

If there’s a silver lining to COVID-19, it’s that it made Australian businesses recognise that you can still successfully – if not better operate your businesses without sacrificing its productivity and employee welfare.

The pandemic clearly accentuated the demand for outsourcing. The notion of looking globally to build a team and scale has become more accessible with the advent of technology.

Currently, migration is still recovering since the borders were re-opened thanks to the lengthy visa processes and high taxes, most businesses fear that the labour shortage will stifle the economy.

Since the golden goose was pretty much shot, the labour shortage will further drive-up inflation by triggering a wage surge thereby increasing the cost of goods and services.

National Australia Bank (NAB) being one of the big four lenders – established technology centres in India and Vietnam because they just couldn’t find local staff.

If this labour problem goes unresolved, the post-pandemic economic opportunity will be one that is wasted.
