COMPAS Poll/Survey

Among the challenges of an aging workforce, a dearth of technical employees remains as the top dilemma in the eyes of the CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS panel. That this is seen as a serious problem is suggested by the continuity of opinion, essentially unchanged in three years. Panelists continue to see special roles for both business and government in in-house training, post-secondary education investments, and investments in apprenticeship programs. Immigrants and recruitment abroad could be part of the solution, but not the most effective in the eyes of panelists.

These are the key findings from this past week’s Internet survey of CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS panel. The weekly business survey is undertaken for Canadian Business magazine.
