While relocating to Australia from all parts of the world continues to soar in popularity, it appears that arguably the biggest name yet has just only now announced that he plans to jump on the bandwagon and move to Oz. That seemed to be the worldwide consensus as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak stated that he plans to be living in the Land Down Under by 2014.
Wozniak famously started Apple, the world’s most financially successful company, with Steve Jobs who died in 2011. After leaving the company 25 years ago he now spends most of his time as a public speaker traveling the world and providing tips and encouragement to people around the globe.
While immigration officials are hesitant to ever place too much importance on the immigration of any one individual, this appears to be an exception as Australia’s financial leaders were communicating non-stop on Wozniak’s potential impact to the country’s economy in general, and start-up community in particular. Aside from the direct influence he could have, corporate bigwigs are equally excited about his history of positive impact on work culture where he has always stressed the importance of opening company internal communications and has helped encourage businesses to invest in their employees technological ideas that are created on their own time.
It is this last idea that has corporate heads most excited. CEO’s in Australia have been longing for motivating factors to lure top level talent to their companies. This is one of the areas where many of America’s top companies have thrived at and it has helped enable them to reach the lofty heights that they have. The possibility of someone like Steve Wozniak importing a similar culture to local companies and letting employees know that their innovations will be encouraged and, perhaps, even financed, could be the game changing event that allows Australian companies to both recruit top global level talent and keep them for the long term as well.
