Business, Labour & Community: Planning for Prosperity!

The Great Canadian Skills Mismatch: People Without Jobs, Jobs Without People and MORE

Dr. Rick Miner, president of Miner and Miner Ltd. a management consulting firm that specializes in issues related to labour force demand, jobs of the future, Human Resource Management and post-secondary education was the keynote speaker at Workforce Planning Hamilton's launch event for the Hire Learning survey, on January 8, 2015.

Referencing his recent research into future skills shortages Dr. Miner noted that an impending workforce crisis can be avoided through a better trained/educated workforce and having more workers and a higher labour force participation rate.

The latter can be accomplished with the increased involvement of specific segments of the Canadian population, such as Immigrants, Aboriginals, Persons with Disabilities, Women, Younger Workers and Older Workers.
