Make your next hire
Why it’s important to evaluate your employees.Don’t Hesitate…Evaluate
Statistics Canada released its latest Labor Survey and according to the numbers, Canada has a 7.4% unemployment rate, with Alberta at just 5%.
This is valuable information when you are looking to hire for a number of reasons. First, a low unemployment rate means that you won’t see a pile of resumes for your job ads. It also means that it might take you longer to fill that position and that you have to act quickly when you do find the “one”. In a tight market like this the more likely scenario is that potential applicants are applying to numerous position and have the edge with what job they take, so being slow to make an offer might just lose you your dream hire.
