Business Leaders & IT Professionals Meet in Saskatoon to Discuss Strategies for Alleviating Staff Shortages in Western Canada’s High Growth Economies

Sept. 26, 2012 (Saskatoon) – Nearly 400 business leaders, IT professionals and students are gathering in Saskatoon this Friday to discuss IT staffing issues resulting from Western Canada’s economic boom. Although the rapid growth has created an exciting opportunity for companies to expand, a steady increase in the demand for labour has resulted in a shortage of qualified IT professionals.

In response, WBM has begun placing IT professionals into the offices of their clients to help fill positions in IT departments. These positions have dramatically accelerated efforts to attract and retain qualified IT professionals in the province, bringing in dozens of new hires who will work within many of the province’s largest organizations.

The ability to provide these organizations with the people they need to operate and grow is becoming a critical condition of success for IT to keep up with the aggressive business strategies the province is now seeing.
