CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week.

Seeking Support: The Future of Employee Health (The Conference Board of Canada)

Survey results revealed that current employer-provided health benefits plans do not meet employees’ wants or needs. The report suggests that this misalignment puts organizations at increased risk for disengagement and turnover.

Are Adults Making Use of Career Services in Canada? (LMIC)

This report finds that large numbers of Canadians are not accessing career services, either because they are not aware of them, don’t feel the need for them or face access barriers. Among the takeaways:

  • Almost one in five adults aged 25–64 have received career services in the past five years
  • Men, those with post-secondary education, immigrants and unemployed people are more likely to use career services
Canadian Tech Industry and Workforce Trends 2021 (Comptia)

This report provides an in-depth look at employment, economic impact, technology trends, salaries, hiring activity and more across the provinces and metropolitan areas of Canada. After a slightly down year due to the pandemic, it projects that net tech employment in Canada will reach approximately 1,146,270 in 2021, an increase of 1.3%.

2021 Canadian Self-Employment Report (FreshBooks)

The global pandemic has changed the way people work and inspired a new age of entrepreneurs. According to FreshBooks’ research, an estimated seven million Canadians are expecting to leave their “traditional” jobs in the next two years for self-employment.
