Webinar Recap: Talent for an Emerging Workforce

CEW EFC Web Recap 400

June 9, 2021

Last year, Electro-Federation Canada surveyed its members to understand the top game-changer affecting their organization. Talent availability was ranked at number one. To address this topic, EFC partnered with PwC and assembled a committee of members to help develop the Talent for an Emerging Workforce research study that explores talent requirements for an emerging workforce within the Canadian electrical industry. Though much has changed since that 2019 EFC member satisfaction survey was launched (i.e. the pandemic, emerging social movements such as Black Lives Matter), the need for talent has not. In fact, the new unprecedented realities organizations face today, like the pandemic, have amplified the need for a strong workforce – a team equipped with the skills needed to face new customer demands.

On Thursday, September 10, EFC’s Swati Vora-Patel along with Tresa Cambridge, Kathy Parker and Michelle Gronning from PwC, unveiled the key findings of the Talent for an Emerging Workforce research report to nearly 200 webinar participants. Click here to view the recording. This webinar was sponsored by Shawcor.

Participants were equipped with the latest research on talent development and the strategies every company should keep top of mind to thrive now and into the future.
