Workforce Planning Hamilton celebrates 20 years of Workforce Planning leadership
Workforce Planning Hamilton celebrated our 20th Anniversary as Hamilton's leader in local workforce development with a very successful event on April 25th.
Over 75 people attended to hear a dynamic keynote address by AJ Tibando, from the Brookfield Institute, Ryerson University. Ms. Tibando spoke about innovation, automation and the impact of technology on Canada's workforce.
As she explained there are four ways that technology is impacting work: 1. Shift to digital, 2. Rise of the gig economy, 3. Shift to cities,
4. Are robots taking jobs?
Speaking about Hamilton's situation, Ms. Tibando explained that the diversification of Hamilton's economy has prepared the city to be positioned to withstand the transition to automation.
A highlight of the event was the presentation by Mohawk College of a plaque congratulating WPH on 20 years of workforce development leadership in Hamilton.
Thanks to all our partners who attended the event and who have aided us in our work throughout the years!
