where human resources jobs in canada are headed in 2018
We're seeing an increased demand for HR professionals with knowledge of succession planning. As Millennials and Gen Z surge into the Canadian workforce, they need to be taught the skills to replace retiring Boomers. Half of the Boomer generation is already over 65, and the rest aren't far behind. HR professionals with the skills to develop younger workers and prepare them to take over vacated senior and management roles are in high demand. Another big trend is being able to adapt to flexible workplaces. The days of strictly enforced 9 to 5s are waning. New work habits emerging, like a rise in contract, temp and freelance work, working from home, and shared workspaces. To be effective, HR professionals must adapt and meet the shifting needs of these workers.
