Employment Forecasts

A Deloitte Access Economics publication

Make more informed business and strategic decisions with our detailed employment commentary and forecast data across industries and regions.

Forecasting plays a pivotal role in long-term strategic planning. By having access to forecast data and expert analysis on the future path for employment across many dimensions, you’ll be better positioned to support workforce strategy and operations for your business and market.

Produced quarterly, Employment Forecasts provides detailed forecasts and commentary on employment in Australia across industries and regions, including deep insights into three worker classifications:

  1. White collar: Workers in occupations typically attached to an office environment
  2. Blue collar: Workers in occupations who typically engage in manual work such as those in industrial settings
  3. Human services: Workers in occupations typically associated as service workers who may not be attached to an office environment

Our authoritative insight can help both businesses and policy makers take the pulse of Australia’s economy. If you’re looking to better understand property demand which is driven by employment, our detailed forecast data and analysis can help you make informed business decisions. Our white collar employment estimate captures demand for CBD office space across industry sectors, making it a vital resource for landlords, brokers and the business community.

Understanding changing employment patterns can also shed light on emerging occupations and shifting skill needs. Our analysis of the major influences of employment demand offers critical guidance to policy makers, researchers and any business seeking to understand the future demand for skills.

Employment Forecasts’ principal author is David Rumbens. David is a senior partner in Deloitte Access Economics’ macroeconomics practice and has over two decades of experience advising senior government officials and leaders in Australia’s corporate sector on the economic environment, risks and strategy.
