Client:  AWPA - Australian Workplace and Productivity Agency

WRC provided advice to inform an issues paper for workforce development in the Australian manufacturing sector.  This firstly involved quantitative analysis of the nature of labour market transitions in the industry, particularly the use of sequence analysis to map transitions. The project also involved extensive documentation of literature on international trends in manufacturing workforces and any policies and programs in place, as well as comparative analysis of international data relating to manufacturing production and workforces.
