Did you know that 70% of businesses struggle to find skilled talent in IT, so most recruit outside of Canada? According to Tech Bomb, 79% of companies claim that the pandemic has drastically changed how businesses operate, and they need more IT employees. The lack of skilled workers in the sector has led many businesses to look outside of Canada to recruit skilled employees.
The majority of the fields struggling to find IT employees include operations and logistics, and sales and marketing.
"The pandemic clearly provided a catalyst for many businesses to accelerate their digital strategies, but implementing these strategies is becoming more difficult, as the competition for digitally skilled talents is accelerating globally," says Armughan Ahmad, President and Managing Partner, Digital at KPMG.
“To address this, companies are looking inward for solutions, and upskilling their existing workforce to become more digitally focused. They’re also starting to recognize micro-credentials to help expedite the upskilling of their employees," Ahmad adds.
