Ideas from the edge: What refugees can teach us about innovation

While there are those that are focusing on building walls and isolation, this may come at a great cost. Exposure to different cultural experiences and perspectives has been shown to be a boon for innovation. This is particularly true for people who have been through the experience of seeking asylum.

Most now recognise that people who seek asylum go through horrific circumstance to leave their country. But what they might not realise is that these people often bring with them a wealth of knowledge and unique perspectives. Learning to cope with their changed circumstances also helps refugees develop a great depth and resilience.

These experiences can not only help them overcome adversity as individuals, but when these perspectives are applied in their adopted country they can also help bring fresh insights. They can teach us how we can all improve as a society.

Supporting people seeking asylum is an essential first step to realising these potential benefits.

Andrew Grant joins Channel 7: The Morning Show, with Larry Emdur & Kylie Gillies to discuss why presenteeism is costing the Australian economy $34 billion per year in lost productivity.

Absenteeism costs the Australian economy 34 billion dollars a year through lost productivity. A 2011 survey conducted by the A-C-T-U found that 51 per cent of employees still went to work when sick because they had too much to do. While 28 per cent felt pressured to attend work. Sick days accommodate for employees when feeling under the weather – but – should the same apply for mental health.
