staffing during a talent shortage.

A record GDP, falling unemployment, and a stubborn job vacancy rate that just won’t budge. Canada’s labour market is a microcosm of a global economy under the pressure of a rapid workforce transformation. Talent scarcity — plus an accompanying skills gap — is a worldwide challenge.

Careers involving AI, automation, machine learning, big data and all things digital are on the rise, as are project management and business development roles. Good talent is, quite simply, hard to find. In Canada, the top 3 in-demand skills according to the number of job ads, are cloud computing, cybersecurity and data science. The need for talent in the IT and emerging technology specialties is driven by the rising demand for those services and products.   

It’s time for a new set of strategies for finding and retaining skilled talent in the most in-demand industries. Don’t let talent scarcity slow down your strong recovery.

managed services programs (MSP).

maximize the benefits of a flexible workforce

If you’re one of the 76% of Canadian employers that say their talent strategies are more focused on workforce agility than ever before, you may also be planning to shift more roles to contingent this year.

A managed services program (MSP) gives you full visibility over your contingent workforce, including contractors, freelancers, statement of work (SOW) talent and gig workers. Using talent analytics, supplier rationalization, market intelligence and 4.0 strategies, like direct sourcing, MSP can deliver faster access to skilled professionals while helping your organization gain greater agility. Implementing a rigorously designed and consistent process helps you stay compliant with all labour regulations and governance requirements. Managing your entire contingent talent lifecycle keeps costs under control and improves decision-making.
