A Good Match: Optimising Australia's permanent skilled migration
Nearly a quarter of permanent skilled migrants in Australia are working in a job beneath their skill level, a new report by CEDA has found.
CEDA’s inaugural Company Pulse provides insights on the community’s expectations of business and how these expectations compare with the priorities of business leaders.
Overall, the results show the community expects a broad contribution from business including on social and environmental issues.
It surveyed more than 3000 people, including members of the general public and business leaders.
CEDA’s inaugural Company Pulse is a nationwide survey of the general public and business leaders that includes more than 3000 people.
Overall, the results show the community expects a broad contribution from business including on social and environmental issues. While our survey highlights many issues that the community and business leaders are aligned on – perhaps more so than might be expected – it also identifies areas of disconnect.
Business and the general public agree that expectations of business have risen. However, scepticism remains around whether the behaviour of business has improved, and whether business leaders are seeking to advance national interests or their own company’s when they speak out on important issues.
Along with the national results, CEDA released state specific results from Company Pulse.
Building on CEDA’s 2018 Community Pulse survey, which explored the community’s views on economic growth and development, Company Pulse provides insights on the community’s expectations of business and how these expectations compare with the priorities of business leaders.
The decline of community trust in business has been much talked about. Better understanding community expectations of business and responding to them will build greater trust in business and its contribution to our economy and society. That, in turn, can help to enable business and business leaders to inform policy debates and reforms critical to Australia’s future prosperity.
