This contemporary problem that threatens growth
According to a study by the Institut de la statistique du Québec, supported by data from Statistics Canada, there are more than 250,000 vacant positions throughout Quebec. The job market is increasingly under pressure. Since 2018, the demand for qualified workers is constantly increasing while the pool of resources is shrinking. A real scourge for the Quebec economy, the lack of personnel is a major barrier to the growth of SMEs in Quebec, particularly in the manufacturing sector, which represents 12.6% of Quebec’s GDP.
For An Agile Vision : Scrums
The New Year is a time for introspection and assessment, a time to reflect on the past year and recognize what we have accomplished and what we want to achieve. Over the past months, Norda Stelo’s employees have shown resilience and put forward the company’s values of innovation and adaptability so as to seize the opportunities that have presented themselves in this crisis context. Among these, the advent of teleworking and the creation of a collaborative platform have enabled us to evolve our work methods towards a more agile model of cooperation.
