Latest job figures have revealed the official unemployment rate fell to 5.7 percent in September; results that should be cause for optimism among Australian workers, says Drake Australia’s Matthew Tukaki.
Regionl manager of Drake Australia, Tukaki said that Australian workers should be optimistic for the future and the lead up to the Christmas thanks to a fall in the unemployment rate and an increase in full time jobs by 35,400.
“While corporate Australia and business in general should remain cautious, now is also the time to invest in jobs and skills development. The fact is that the Australian economy remains the most resilient in the developed world,” he said.
Tukaki believes that businesses should take advantage of the talent pool out there and be sure about when and why they increase their full-time labour force.
“There is a lot of talent available in the market at all levels, and companies are starting to take advantage of this to get the best people on board who will provide the foundation for growth,” he said.
