6 reports that caught our eye the week of May 24, 2020

Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are six reports that we found interesting this week:

Working Through COVID-19: Return to Work Survey (The Conference Board of Canada)

The Conference Board of Canada asked organizations across the country how they’re planning to bring employees back to physical workplaces, and what measures they are putting in place.

Preliminary Report: Canadians’ Shifting Outlooks on Employment (Future Skills Centre)

The 2020 Survey on Employment and Skills, conducted by the Environics Institute for Survey Research in partnership with the Future Skills Centre and Ryerson University’s Diversity Institute, found that Canadians did not lose confidence in themselves or the social safety net as the impact of the pandemic set in. Confidence was greater among those with higher levels of education and income, with less-secure workers less certain they can access the resources they need to weather the pandemic’s employment storm.

Resetting Normal: Building Gender Equality in the Pandemic Recovery (Canadian Women’s Foundation)

As women experience higher rates of gender-based violence and financial precarity, organizations that serve them are at the leading edge of innovative and timely responses. But decades of underfunding have robbed organizations of the capacity to truly meet community needs for these essential services. The COVID-19 crisis is an opportunity to change this and forge ahead with new resources for the women’s sector.

COVID-19 Risks Outlook: A Preliminary Mapping and its Implications (World Economic Forum)

This report identifies the headline risks, challenges and, encouragingly, the opportunities the world is facing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the aim of raising awareness, fostering widespread debate and enabling better decision-making.

The impact of COVID-19 on the gig economy: Short- and long-term concerns (Statistics Canada)

A new study looks at some of the challenges in tracking the gig economy in real time and profiles the approximately 1.7 million Canadians who worked in the gig economy prior to the pandemic.

Social Assistance Summaries (Maytree)

The Social Assistance Summaries series, last updated in May 2020, tracks the number of recipients of social assistance (welfare payments) in each province and territory.
