Immigration Outlook for Australia in 2021

Immigration Outlook for Australia in 2021

NSW International HRM Network

With the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine in Australia commencing in March, business leaders are planning for the next phase of their business recovery. For many businesses this will include the need to source skilled foreign talent to fill critical roles with their business in Australia while balancing office and remote work.

This session will summarise the current border restrictions and how these may evolve as the COVID vaccine is rolled out to the Australian population. Our expert presenters will provide insights on how best to navigate the current and near-term travel exemption environment.

As businesses transition to remote work on a more permanent basis there are several issues we will start to see, including:
 - sponsored workers nominate purely remote work
 - the impact remote working will have on the local labour market
 - the flow-on effects it has on the economy
 - skill shortages and the migration programme
 - obligations tied to the location of employees working remotely.

Additionally, the session will deliver insights on the evolving landscape for skilled migration to Australia for business and how human resources and mobility professionals can implement some workforce planning strategies.

Our expert speakers will provide perspective on the workforce planning challenges for businesses generally reliant on incoming skilled foreign workers where work is conducted remotely.

This forum is suitable for:

HR Practitioners of mid to senior career level, specifically in the roles of:
 - HR Business Partner
 - Workforce planning
 - Employment Law
 - Recruitment
