What does WPH believe?

Business, Labour & Community: Planning for Prosperity!

Employers: Workforce Planning Hamilton needs your valuable feedback!

laptop-business-man.jpg Workforce Planning Hamilton works to plan for and promote labour market development in Hamilton. Perhaps you have seen some our reports, or attended one of our events in the past. For more information about WPH please see our website at www.workforceplanninghamilton.ca.

Every year we undertake a number of initiatives in support of employers in Hamilton. We would appreciate your valuable feedback on the following activities: 

1. Employer One - our annual survey of employers on their workforce challenges and issues distributed in January

2. Soft skills - Tools & Resources - the number one issue for employers across all sectors and sizes of employer 

3. Employer Hub - our proposal to create a one-stop shop for information and tools and resources that
support employers' recruitment and retention challenges

Future of Jobs Report says that flexible, versatile workers will be key for future job types

Earlier this year, the World Economic Forum released The Future Of Jobs, a report that examines worldwide trends in 
employment, skill sets and recruitment. The report argues that, as a global community, we are standing on the precipice
of a fourth Industrial Revolution.

It suggests that the disruption inherent in the adoption of new technologies, coupled with broader economic, political and
demographic developments (including an aging population and the threat of a  shortage of skilled workers), offers industries, employees and employers around the world an  important but narrow window in which to adapt.

Stress strategies for employees

Do your employees say they are feeling stressed in their daily lives? A new online tool is available to empower adults to
explore their sources of stress and develop their own customized plans for managing it.

Stress Strategies is a mobile-friendly, free, and easy to use coaching tool developed by The Psychology
Foundation of Canada with support from Pfizer Canada.

Visit www.StressStrategies.ca for more information.
