Businesses see the availability of skilled people as the major threat but few are prepared

TORONTO, CANADA, December 2017

A new survey carried out by Modus shows that approximately half of managers and executives see the availability of people with the right skills and talents as having the greatest disruptive impact over the next 5-10 years. Yet fewer than 30% believe that their organisation has a plan to deal with that. The regulatory environment also reveals a significant gap.

These results came from a survey conducted in December, 2017 amongst 650 managers and executives from the Modus Business panel, the only fully representative and randomly sampled panel of all managers and executives across Canada. The results have been weighted by organization size and region and are accurate to within 4% points 95 times out of a 100.
