Canadian workforce set for immense shift in the next decade
Canadian employers are challenging the established norms of
the country's workforce and are already hiring a broad variety of non-traditional workers (i.e. contract, consultant, remote or freelance), a trend that is likely to accelerate over the next decade fundamentally changing the nature of employment in Canada, according to a new study.
Randstad Canada released the Workforce 2025 report on April 18th. The study involved nearly 1,300 employees and more than 500 HR and c-suite executives across
Canada, revealing that non-traditional workers currently make up 20% to 30% of the workforce. And this statistic is expected to increase in the next decade.
