In addition to its business strategy, the Australian and global macro environment has also been largely instrumental in driving the company’s success. Some of the key highlights being-
- global shift towards a service economy;

- company Boards and other leaders are growing conscious towards managing risk and pushing for confidence in compliance frameworks, as much as the governments and regulators do.
Let’s look at some of the economic and demographic trends in Australia published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) that would provide some clue about the dynamics of the employment scenario in the country.
As per Australian Demographic Statistics by ABS, the preliminary estimated resident population (ERP) stood at 25,287,400 as of 31 March 2019, depicting an uptick of 388,800 people year-on-year. For the 12 months to 31 March 2019, the preliminary estimate of net overseas migration (NOM) was 4.9% or 11,700 people higher than NOM recorded for prior corresponding period.
- Labour Account Australia
During the September 2019 quarter, the number of jobs filed in Australia rose to 14.4 million in seasonally adjusted terms and hours actually worked also largely increased from by 61.8 million hours to 5.4 billion hours. The total labour income also improved by $ 2,809 million, which takes the average labour income per employed person at $ 19,060.
- Participation, Job Search and Mobility
As of February 2019, ~ 12.7 million people were employed in Australia, which accounts for nearly 2/3rd of the civilian population aged 15 and over (20.1 million). Although underemployment has been reasonably stable in the last few years, around 1.1 million people (9% of employed) were underemployed and 8.5% (1.1 million) of the employed population changed employers or businesses in the 12 months to February 2019.
Besides, of the 677,000 unemployed people in February 2019, ~87.8% reported to have experienced difficulty in finding work, due to personal factors like own health issues and insufficient work experience; and job-related factors like excess applications and No vacancies at all.
- Characteristics of Employment
During the 12 months to August 2019, the median weekly earnings of employees rose by 2.3%, which was consistent with the improvements observed in the Wage Price Index and Average Weekly Earnings.
Interestingly, the median weekly earnings for male employees increased by less than that of female employees, perhaps due to the growing number of males opting to work in part-time hours, and the industries and occupations that men and women are working in. On that note, the proportion of employed people with access to flexible working hours also increase during the period, 34% in August 2019 from 32% in August 2015.
The figures above suggest that the employment scenario is evolving for the better in Australia with a greater number of people, including immigrants, seeking employment, which makes the services provided by CVCheck highly relevant. While CVCheck takes care of the background checks in demand, the employers can direct their focus towards other crucial business aspects like driving company’s growth, enhancing the financial strength and building career growth opportunities for the employees.
