In an effort to understand the state of career development in the Canadian workplace, CERIC commissioned Environics Research Group to survey 500 employers in the fall of 2013. The survey charts new territory with an in-depth look at the response of Canadian business to youth unemployment, the business view on just how real skills shortages are in this country, and insights on exactly how business is recruiting and training talent today.
Among the questions that will be answered: In a world of LinkedIn, are resumes obsolete? What is the gap between what Canadian businesses want of young workers compared to what they actually bring to the job? And what kind of support are companies providing for career development today?
