Hamer joins Swinburne's Centre for the New Workforce


Swinburne University of Technology's Centre for the New Workforce has appointed Ben Hamer as an adjunct industry fellow.

"The Centre for the New Workforce is excited to welcome Dr Ben Hamer to our growing team of world-class thought leaders," said Centre director Sean Gallagher.

"Dr Hamer brings a freshness of perspective on the different value each generation in a workforce brings to their workplace. In particular, he is a strong proponent that millennials matter.

"I applaud Ben for focusing on one of the key challenges of our times - how can we empower our younger workers while at the same time valuing and respecting the experience of older generation workers?"

Hamer is a director at PwC Australia, and is the firm's lead for the future of work.

He is also a sessional academic in the University of Technology Sydney's MBA program.

Before joining PwC, Hamer was an associate director at KPMG Australia, senior manager of workforce planning and performance at Transport for NSW, manager of workforce planning and design at the Commonwealth Department of Social Services, assistant director of workforce planning and analytics at the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, a management consultant at Booz & Co, and a marketing and communications officer at Edith Cowan University.

He holds a Bachelor of Business degree from Edith Cowan University, a Batchelor of Business Administration with honours from the Australian National University, and a professional doctorate in public administration from the University of Canberra.

"Disruption is happening at an unprecedented pace. As a nation, we are already falling behind, while organisations are shying away from the necessary conversations," said Hamer.

"The problem is that when we talk about the future of work, we imply that it's tomorrow's problem, something for the next person. But the opportunity, and the need for action is now. Millennials will play a big part, particularly given that up to 75 per cent of Australian workforces will comprise Millennials by 2025."

He added "At the Centre, I hope to align industry experience with best-in-class research to drive an action-oriented national conversation that values all workers. Harnessing this diversity will unleash enormous potential in all organisations as we enter the digital economy."
