Hiring Plans increase for 2022
Almost one-half (49 per cent) of senior managers across Canada plan to add new permanent positions in the first half of the year — up six points from six months ago when it was 43 per cent.
Another 45 per cent plan to fill vacated positions while 52 per cent of senior managers expect to bring in more contract talent this year, according to a Robert Half survey.
More than one-quarter (28 per cent) of employers have mandated that employees get a booster shot. That compares to 51 per cent who have mandated employees get at least two shots of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to a separate survey.
Future-proofing Canada’s workforce using Skills for Success
The COVID-19 pandemic was the catalyst of a major disruption in the already dynamic and frequently shifting Canadian labour market. Leaving thousands of organizations to shift entire business models and millions of workers to adapt to instant and frequent change, the pandemic introduced a vital need for future-focused and versatile workplace skills.
New labour market trends accelerated by the pandemic, such as automation and remote or hybrid work models, also highlighted skills-related inequalities that exist in the labour market.
Happening in the community!
