Hiring trends in Canada in 2019
The level of hiring activity in key sectors - namely accounting, finance, legal and compliance - will remain constant in 2019 as companies continue to build robust corporate support functions to complement their growing front office/revenue generating divisions.
AI and the digitalization of industries will continue to dominate the hiring market across all sectors. While the government pledges more money towards further research helping to speed up talent graduating from universities, hiring managers will still have to contend with an acute skills shortage.
Competition to secure top talent will increase this year as international companies, especially within the technology space, look to increase their footprint in hubs such as Toronto. As hiring managers look to tap into the pool of high-performing talent, companies will need to address flexible working practices, speed to hire and overall employer brand, particularly when trying to attract the next wave of millennials.
