Want to get ahead of the game next year? Get a sneak peek at the Hays Salary Guide to learn what you can expect from the Canadian market in 2017.
According to the Hays 2017 Salary Guide, the industries expected to perform the best in 2017 include construction, banking/financial services, IT and telecommunication, and pharma/life sciences. These industries all have high expectations for business activity growth, and many are seeing a high number of employers intending to increase headcount. However, these industries are also experiencing the most severe talent shortages, and many employers are missing key opportunities for attracting the best candidates.
Looking at IT specifically, most employers are expecting a continued increase in business activity, but this hasn’t translated into an increased expectation in new hires. Last year 39% of employers increased their staff levels and 40% expect to increase it next year. Despite the high expected business activity increases, employers overall aren’t adjusting how they are currently hiring – likely due to the skill shortage.
