Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week:
Following two consecutive months of growth, employment held steady in October. Employment was down for men in the core working ages of 25 to 54, and grew for the population aged 55 and over.
This report looks at historical data from seven Canadian companies at various stages of their mental-health investment journey and interviews with subject matter experts and leaders from 10 companies to better understand common challenges and enablers of program success.
The Sector 360° Survey is ONN’s first survey of the sector to examine how Ontario’s non-profit landscape has been affected by the 2019 provincial budget, as well as recent policy decisions made by the provincial government. The report finds non-profits are now operating in a climate of growing uncertainty and volatility as a result of massive systems transformations confronting the non-profit sector in Ontario.
Great Divide or Small Fissure? A Comparison of Skills, Education and Earnings across Standard and Non-standard Workers (HEQCO)
Standard work generally refers to jobs that are permanent and full time while non-standard work refers to jobs that are temporary, contract or casual in nature, part-time employment, self-employment and holding multiple jobs. This report explores the rates of non-standard employment across various skill and education levels; the relationship between skills and the probability of having a standard job; and the differences in earnings between workers in standard and non-standard employment with a focus on the extent to which skills gaps may contribute to the lower earnings of nonstandard workers.
