Technological advancement in computer-aided design and manufacturing automation has brought about a visible shift in the skill sets required by manufacturing and production companies. Most Canadian manufacturers are experiencing a moderate to severe talent crunch due to the unavailability of skilled workers who can support the highly demanding production environments.
Existing talent acquisition strategies are unable to fulfill the demand for qualified personnel. Job portals and ad posts are no longer effective in identifying candidates with competencies such as:
- Manufacturing industry-specific skills and experience
- Problem solving abilities
- In-depth technical know-how as production systems become advanced
- Ability to work in high pressure production environments

Our long association with manufacturers has equipped us with the skills necessary to identify qualified talent and recommend the right incentives required to attract them.
