Manitoba business leaders consider labour shortages as one of the top 2 challenges facing business in Manitoba.

Many are looking to immigration and off shore outsourcing as ways to solve this problem.

The “greying” of the the work force is occurring rapidly as the ”Baby Boomers” prepare to leave the workforce. Expected labour needs are growing in service and manufacturing industries, increasing annually 3% to 5%. Even higher increases are predicted in the medical and technical fields.

During this same period, there will be a 30% drop in the number of people entering the workforce, compared to 10 years ago.

General labour and entry level positions will become increasingly harder to fill and turnover will continue to increase as employers compete for experienced and skilled labour.

Premier Personnel can help fill these types of positions and our services and training is free to the employer and our client.


“Premier Personnel has an excellent ability to match a person with the job. Their continuing follow up protocol is an excellent service. It allows for mediation, training and continuous communication.”
