WPH partnering with Mohawk College to study Hamilton's Health Care sector
Did you know that one in ten people in Hamilton work in the health care sector and that this sector has shown steady employment growth over the past five years? WPH's Employer One survey tells us that health care employers are more likely to find recruitment challenging.
WPH is pleased to announce that we have received funding from the Ministry of Advanced Education & Skills Development for the Sector Partnership Planning Grant to provide an in depth study of the health care sector in Hamilton.
We will be partnering with Mohawk College on this work along with health care employers across the community.
The goal of this research to is better understand the workforce challenges in health care and, working with employment and training service providers, develop collaborative solutions and a specific action plan to aid the health care sector meet their future employment requirements.
If you are a health care employer and would like to contribute your thoughts to our study please be in touch with Judy Travis:
Artificial intelligence is likely to make a career in finance, medicine or law a lot less lucrative
Thanks to rapid advances in robotics, automation and artificial intelligence, jobs are falling to machines left and right. And it's not just blue-collar jobs that are being taken over by automation. It's white-collar professions as well. According to an Oxford study, 47 percent of U.S. jobs could fall to automation in the next 20 years.
The safe, high paying jobs of the past are starting to look much less secure going forward.
