In an effort to understand the evolving state of Career Development in the Canadian Workplace, CERIC commissioned Environics Research Group to survey 500 employers in late 2021. Join us for the release of the findings from our National Business Survey and to hear from a panel of leaders who will parse the results. Learn about 1) recruitment and retention in wake of “The Great Reshuffle” 2) hiring underrepresented groups as part of DEI strategies 3) current skills and talent gaps in the labour market 4) career management in the context of remote and hybrid work, and 5) how employers perceive the services of career development professionals. Select results will be compared with those from our 2013 survey to track changes over the past eight years.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Top pain points for Canadian employers now in sourcing, hiring and keeping talent     
  • How CDPs and the sector can help employers meet their shifting labour challenges     
  • Ways to advise and prepare your clients and learners for skills that are in-demand
