Firms in good position to attract new talent
The amount of Canadian workers actively looking for a new job has increased over the last quarter, according to Randstad's latest labour mobility index.
Overall, compared to third quarter results, the mobility index has risen from 103 to 105 points (levels last seen in the first and second quarters of 2011). This increase indicates more employees worldwide expect to be employed elsewhere over the next six months, said Randstad.
In a global context, no other country has experienced greater movement in the labour market in the fourth quarter as Canada has, with an increase of 12 points over the last quarter. Belgium (up eight points) Switzerland (up five points) and Argentina (up five points) have also seen an increase while Singapore (down seven points) has experienced a decline in the fourth quarter, found the index.
