Here at Disruptors Co, we couldn’t help but feel like the working year was kicking off a lot slower than usual. Well, that’s probably because it technically was slower.
Last week, the Australian Bureau of Statistics released its Australian Labour Force statistics for January 2022
. Interestingly, it found that Australians generally had worked significantly fewer hours in January than they did during December 2021- specifically 159 million fewer hours.
Unsurprisingly, KPMG’s Chief Economist explained
that this fall was largely ‘due to workers working fewer, or no, hours due to illness - almost 1.2 million people had to take time off in January’.
With the business world slowing down, we took the opportunity to fully embrace the mindSHIFT and apply it to our own work. With lots of (virtual) butchers paper, drafts and coffee, we took the time to understand what this mindSHIFT means to us, and how the industries we work in can benefit from actioning the mindSHIFT philosophy.
In the second of her two part blog series on policy and the mindSHIFT, our newest Disruptor, Laura McDonald,
took a step back in time to analyse how the global shock of historical events creates the perfect storm for a mindSHIFT. (You can check out part one on effective policy making in response to the Covid19 pandemic here
). Be sure to check out part two
, which investigates the policy mindSHIFT in the aircraft industry following 9/11.
Taking a different approach, Stephanie Hall,
our climate guru, delved deeper into the potential for businesses and innovators to build creative climate-oriented solutions in a post-COP26 world. You can check out her blog post on how businesses can mindSHIFT on climate here
