Recruitment plagues local bizNovember 8, 2017 4:13 pm
Nearly 80 per cent of Central Okanagan businesses are growing, but businesses across the region continue to struggle with recruitment.
Of the 221 businesses who took part in the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission’s annual business walk last month, well over 150 said they were “growing,” while only a handful said they were “declining.”
However, close to half of the businesses tapped for the face-to-face surveys (41 per cent) said they were experiencing recruitment problems. Those problems appear to be hitting all sectors, with everyone from general labourers to trained chefs and architects in high demand.
