Protecting People in the New World of Work
Released: Wednesday January 16, 2019
Long-term prosperity depends on human capital. A skilled workforce not only drives innovation and productivity, but also contributes to resilience in times of economic uncertainty. From intensifying global competition to ongoing technological advancements to shifting demographics, a number of key trends are transforming labour market needs and workplace dynamics.
Canada’s Public Policy Forum organized a series of round table discussions across British Columbia to explore human capital challenges and opportunities that will have the greatest impact on the province’s economic future. Bringing together leaders, labour market experts, and human resource practitioners, these multi-sector discussions have culminated in a white paper that will help define key priorities for building a more competitive and resilient workforce in the coming decades.
