The Changing Nature of Work: Digital Transformation & Innovation in the Electricity Sector
This project will address the changing nature of work due to digitization and automation and will help to predict what knowledge and skills requirements will be needed in jobs in the energy sector.
By exploring the transformational impact of technology on current occupations and skills sets, EHRC will be able to identify potential all-new jobs and skills requirements which could require training or re-training. This project aims to gather industry-driven labour market information (LMI) associated with automation and digitization nationwide and across the electricity sector. Information gathered will be disseminated to address the future of work as a result of digitization and automation allowing EHRC to predict what knowledge and skills requirements will be needed in jobs in the energy sector of tomorrow.
This research is currently seeking participants to respond to a survey – fill in the form below to ensure you are contacted to participate.
Greater Integration of Women In Leadership within the Electricity Sector
This project will seek to understand the reasons there are not more women in leadership within the electricity sector. From this, opportunities for hiring and training women in the skilled trades and other occupations will be identified based on labour market need and labour supply.
Through this project, EHRC will collect more detailed LMI data on women within leadership occupations and positions in the Sector to inform evidence-based policymaking, HR strategy and programming for greater integration of women in these roles within the electricity sector. EHRC understands involving men in diversity initiatives should be high on the agenda of gender diversity and inclusion programs and initiatives – without committed male allies, efforts will be of limited success. This research will also engage men in the industry who are championing gender equality to help examine what attitudes and experiences differentiate the two groups. The perspectives of women on the practices of their male counterparts, and all game changers and pace setters will be explored.
This research will be seeking participants to respond to the survey very soon. Fill in the form below to ensure you are contacted to participate.
