Business as usual

With all the present economic uncertainty it might be safe to assume that governments will be scaling back their hiring plans. After all who wants to add to the workforce when government revenues are down. Apparently this is not the case as the provincial government in BC is planning to continue on recruiting and hiring workers. Demographic factors are having a larger impact than temporary economic conditions.

“Within the next seven years, we are expecting one in three current employees to retire,” says B.C. Minister of Advanced Education and Labour Market Development Murray Coell. “Our HR strategy is very much shaped by the reality of the labour market over the next seven to 10 years, not in the short term.”
