Back to the Future: WPH Celebrates 20 years!

Be part of the fun as Workforce Planning Hamilton celebrates its 20th anniversary by looking at our past accomplishments and to what the future will bring to our local economy.

The celebration takes place on April 25th from 3 pm. to 5:30 pm. at the Hamilton Public Library, Central Branch, 4th floor. 

Our keynote speaker is Creig Lamb, author of a new report produced by the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship at Ryerson University. Mr. Lamb will be discussing how technological trends are reshaping Canada’s workforce. 

As nearly 42 % of the Canadian labour force is at a high risk of being affected by automation in the next decade or two, how can we prepare ourselves and the next generation for a rapidly changing workforce? 

Dave Santi, from Mohawk College will be responding to some of the questions raised by Mr. Lamb and sharing how Mohawk College is pereparing students for the jobs of the future.
Come out to network, enjoy some appetizers and celebrate WPH's 20 years of workforce development leadership in the community.

Our partner Agilec is the winner of the EmployerOne pizza party

Congratulations to Ben Johnston and his team at Agilec who are the winners of a pizza party thanks to their enthusiastic support of our EmployerOne survey.

All of our many partners who shared the survey with their employer contacts and who had 5 or more employers complete the survey were entered into a draw to win a staff pizza party.

This was the most successful year to date for the EmployerOne survey, as 278 employers completed the survey.

Survey results will be released very soon!

Thanks to all of our partners and to the local employers who took the time to complete the survey.
Mentoring matters
Because of the importance of mentors, Association for Talent Development's latest research report, Mentoring Matters: Developing Talent With Formal Mentoring Programs, focuses on the characteristics of mentoring programs that organizations have in place.

The report, sponsored by MentorcliQ, surveyed 969 participants and delves into who participates in mentoring programs, how they are selected for inclusion, and what benefits they get from their participation. The following results are based on 
the 285 participants whose organizations have formal mentoring programs.
