Workforce Planning Hamilton began an investigation into skills gaps in 2017 as we recognized the signs of a tightening labour market in the skilled trades. The narrative continues into 2020 with heightened apprehension among employers of a looming "hiring crisis."
Under Pressure 2.0 is a result of speaking to over 130 local employers in the skilled trades and focuses on:
- Hiring issues from employers' perspectives
- Hardest to fill skilled trades
- Employers experiences and critiques on apprenticeships
- Employers recommendations for potential solutions to the talent shortage
