New report from HRPA and Deloitte presents three possible scenarios for the future
TORONTO, April 2, 2012 /CNW/ - A new research backed report to be released on Tuesday, April 3, paints a picture of three distinct scenarios for the Canadian economy and workplace in the year 2025. CanadaWorks 2025 describes how decisions today about key themes, including immigration, education and employment flexibility will dictate Canada's future. The report is based on detailed research interviews with a group of 52 senior business, economic, political and academic leaders from across Canada.
On the heels of the federal budget, Canadians are engaged in discussion regarding our economy and prosperity. Canada faces a fast-changing global environment, with increasing competition from emerging market countries and a global economy that remains fragile and uncertain. Decisions we make now about the workplace will affect Canada's innovation, productivity and prosperity in the future.
The year 2025 could bring The Lost Decade, Unsustainable Prosperity or The Northern Tiger. Of the three scenarios, the most desirable - and the only one that is truly sustainable - is The Northern Tiger.
Who: Bill Greenhalgh, CEO, Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA)
Jeff Moir, Deloitte GTA Human capital consulting leader
