Retention in a Tight Labour Market

Growing a successful business today can be constrained by its ability to find, develop and retain great people. British Columbia is experiencing a significant labour shortage which will continue well into the 2020s. According to BDC, this is not just a BC issue; 40% of SMEs are currently having trouble filling roles, and Canadian labour force growth is slowing to near zero over the next decade.

For business leaders, this is a top priority. Companies that want to thrive over the next decade must win the competition for talent.

This panel presentation will explore strategies that companies and leaders can use to compete for the best people, and become employers of choice for the long-term.

Tim O’Connor, CEO of Results Business Execution, will kick off the presentation and will moderate the panel. Panelists will share insights from their broad experience and industries. Panelists include Ruairi Spillane – Founder; Outpost Recruitment, Fiona Famulak – President; Vancouver Regional Construction Association and Rahim Dawood – Vice President, Advisory Services; AMTRA Solutions.
