A new report released today by the Workforce Development Board/Local Employment Planning Council (WDB/LEPC) establishes the current level of awareness that local employers have about our region’s labour supply.

The goal of this publication is to determine existing gaps, and to identify information that local employers require for improved decision making around talent management in the workplace.

Findings point toward difficulties in employee recruitment and retention, and indicate that improved strategies are needed in response to a lack of skilled workers.
