What good is a job opening if there isn’t talent to fill it?
There’s plenty of good news in the latest data from the HR Trends reports. Many Alberta companies are projecting additional job growth over the next six months. But economic recovery draws down the talent pool, and hiring managers are starting to lower their confidence that positions will be filled by candidates with all the skills they’re looking for.
We also offered a better explanation of just what our Hiring Confidence Index is. More than just a labour market update, our index combines expected job growth with perceptions of the skill availability in the talent pool. Because if your organization is planning for growth, it’s best to know if there’s talent to support the business objectives.
