The New Zealand Productivity Commission is conducting this inquiry in order to provide an independent assessment of the scale and potential impacts of rapid technological change and its disruptive impact on the future of work and the workforce in New Zealand. 

The commission has issued draft report 1 (September 2019), which sets the scene for the inquiry. The commission is seeking feedback from a range of different industries and stakeholders. 

There will be three additional draft reports that will be released in October, November and December. Further information will be added to this page on these additional reports when available.
