CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three reports that we found interesting this week.
Retaining Talent at All Ages (OECD)
Changes in the world of work driven by the digital and green transformations as well as population aging have been associated with greater job instability, with potential costs for companies, workers and society. This report presents evidence on recent trends in job tenure and employee turnover and sheds light on why employees quit their jobs. It identifies key employer and public policies that can support increased employment retention through better job quality, workplace health, and training and skills.
Building Inclusive Communities: Learning from Programs and Policies that Work (United Way)
This report offers a partial roadmap toward development of more inclusive communities by exploring and identifying a mix of targeted place-based program interventions – including workforce agreements – and broader policy interventions that can be implemented to limit the negative impacts of neighbourhood change on Greater Toronto Area residents and communities. The interventions presented provide guidance on how to plan for stronger, more equitable, more inclusive communities.
Workforce Solutions in Child Care (YMCA)
The Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) agreement represents the largest transformational shift in our approach to child care and early learning in a generation. Yet the long-standing workforce shortages in licensed child care – exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic – have become too large to ignore. This white paper outlines recommendations for investments in the early childhood educator workforce to ensure the aims of the CWELCC can be fully realized.
