Tapping into new talent pools is a top priority for BC businesses

with the province poised to be among Canada’s leaders in economic growth in the coming decade. Baby boomers are retiring, fewer young people are entering the workforce, and yet our demand for skilled workers across all industries and professions continues to grow.

Today, many companies find themselves confronting an unprecedented labour shortage — affecting their capacity, their growth, and hindering their competitiveness.

The most successful companies have started developing strategies for engaging non-traditional skilled talent pools including aboriginal communities, candidates with disabilities, recent immigrants, women, youth and older workers, and more.

“As a growing business, finding talent is key to the success of our business, and far more importantly, the satisfaction of our customers. This is something we’re committed to at Fresh Start and it’s an absolutely integral part of our success.”

Thomas Goodall

President , Fresh Start Recycling & Disposal Ltd.
