Discover how the Centre for the New Workforce is developing learning and workplace wellbeing solutions that empower people and organisations in the exponential era through its research and findings.
Led by Dr Sean Gallagher, the Centre for the New Workforce (CNeW) here at Swinburne is a new research initiative on the digital economy that aims to realise our peak human potential.
CNeW is the only centre in Australia dedicated to developing learning and workplace wellbeing solutions for the future of work. We aim to empower people and organisations in a dynamic, technology-transforming world.
There is no greater strategic priority for organisations than realising the potential of their people — and no better way to do this than through the transformative force of learning supported by workplace wellbeing.
Organisations need to go beyond traditional discrete, technical training programs to develop vibrant learning ecosystems that encompass:
- learning behaviours
- the environment
The highest form of learning will be creating value essential for competitive advantage.
Preparing workforces for the uncertainty and opportunity of the digital economy is a daunting challenge. Advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, networks, analytics and digitisation will only increase this challenge.
Our network of experts, analysts and thought leaders understand how work is changing in response to technology:
- what work is
- how it's done
- how it's organised
- who does it
They also know how best to prepare your people and organisation. CNeW can advise and assess your workforce capability, determine and optimise learning and knowledge sharing practices and diagnose and enhance your workplace wellbeing for the future of work.
We help organisations with workforce transformation by:
- providing insight into current trends and how they translate to your organisation
- positioning your leadership team with the authority to lead your workforce and influence stakeholders
- diagnosing pain points in work activity, learning capability, knowledge management, and workplace wellbeing
- implementing solutions to enhance competitive advantage.

The future of work
Sophisticated artificial intelligence and digital technologies are already changing jobs, impacting work and transforming industries.
The Centre for the New Workforce places people at the heart of the future of work.
The future of work is emerging in at least three different ways:
Platform transformation – how digital platforms are transforming work by disconnecting it from jobs, e.g. “expertise as a service” in the gig and freelance economies.
Organisational transformation – how organisations are restructuring themselves, e.g. corporate agile approaches.
Digital transformation – how digital technologies are transforming the way we create value, e.g. Industry 4.0.
