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.
Successful Digital Transformation
According to a study published in the Harvard Business Review, 70% of digital transformation initiatives do not achieve the expected results. Companies that have gone through transformation know how difficult such an initiative can be. We anticipate the upheavals caused by change, employee complaints and the exorbitant costs to be incurred. However, the digitization of certain operations is now essential, and the gains from a digital shift are numerous. At Norda Stelo, we believe that the success of a digital transformation lies in five key factors and that, by creating an environment bringing together these winning conditions, your digital transformation will be a success.
