Canadian construction Companies
According to the results of a Hays Canada salary survey, Canadian construction companies are optimistic about 2015 and expect growth—however, less than half of employers will boost permanent positions within their companies.
Without permanent positions, companies must use short-term or project-to-project contract workers. The number of these short-term contract workers is decreasing due to a lack of job stability, which is resulting in a skills shortage within the industry. Through the survey, many employers admitted these types of hiring processes are not helping with the shortages and the lack of available talent could lead to project completion issues or hinder commitments to future jobs.
