The start of the year has been positive with an overall increase in the global job index from 1.31 in Q4 to 1.65 in Q1. Several regions are showing higher increases in the number of available jobs, confirming our optimism about the global economic recovery.
The industry still has a significant shortage of skilled talent and this shortage will continue to drive compensation packages as companies fight to secure the talent required to drive their business forward.

On behalf of Hays Canada I want to wish LinkedIn a very happy 11th birthday. I can't believe it has been 11 years since LinkedIn opened its doors and have since then changed the way people apply for jobs. I also want to congratulate LinkedIn for reaching the major milestone of over 300 million users. That is an incredible feat and one we should all celebrate. The use of social media, not just LinkedIn, but all channels for how we search and apply for jobs has revolutionized recruitment. We at Hays pride ourselves as being the global leader in recruitment and is why our digital recruitment strategy and digital service offering to our clients and candidates is second to none.

On behalf of Hays Canada, I'd like to wish everyone a very happy, and welcomed Spring season.This anticipated time of year is always a busy one. With tax season, financial year end, and ramping up before the summer months, from our experience professionals across the country feel an added sense of work pressure. As a result, this is typically a busy time of year for hiring. It's an exciting yet busy time of year and to support all of you as you look to add to your headcount I wanted to share our Hiring Series videos.
