Majority of people planning to retire would continue working longer if they could reduce their hours and stress (Statistics Canada)

As the population continues to age, employers may want to develop incentives to retain experienced workers. Among people who had not completely retired but were planning to retire, more than half (55.1%) reported that they would continue working longer if they could work part-time, and 48.9% reported that they would continue working if they could work fewer hours without affecting their pension.

Monitoring Remote Work in Canada: Support or Surveillance (Future Skills Centre)

The pandemic expanded digital technologies to connect and support remote workers, and increased electronic monitoring of those working remotely. While some employers see value in monitoring, overuse can negatively affect employee well-being and job satisfaction. This research examined the experiences and attitudes toward remote work in Canada for employees and supervisors.

Employment Outlook 2023: Artificial intelligence and jobs (OECD)

OECD labour markets remain tight even as the recovery has stalled. Yet, nominal wages have not kept up with high and persistent inflation, and real income of workers has fallen in almost all OECD countries. Increasingly rapid developments in AI are likely to significantly affect jobs. Initial results from a new OECD survey on AI use in the manufacturing and finance sectors show the urgent need to act now, with policies that allow countries, firms and individuals to benefit from AI, while addressing risks.
