The first Driven to Lead Module was held on September 19, and all reports back from the participants have been amazing! Twenty-one people attended this high energy, experiential program that was facilitated by Jeremy Enns of Eagles Flight.

Two of the comments received back in a post event survey include.

“The content was engaging and the facilitator, Jeremy, kept everyone focused and moving through discussions and exercises so that the time just flew by. The energy was great, and I stayed engaged.”

“I was very impressed with the facility and the whole program itself. Thank you very much for a very enjoyable and educational day.”

Another individual remarked that even after one class they were already noticing a difference in how people were communicating and working together at their workplace.

Another person mentioned that it is not just young leaders who could benefit from this program – and people of any age and current management level and experience could gain great value from attending this program!

For those who didn’t register to attend the first module, we are sorry you missed out. The good news is you don’t have to miss out on this great experience. The 2nd module, “Building and Leading Teams” was taking place on November 21 as this issue of PMC was being assembled – indications are it, too was a huge success. The next modules – #3- “Communicating for Impact” on February 20 and #4-“Coaching for Results” on May 15 – are predicted to have the same success.

While you receive a diploma only if you attend all four modules, you still receive certificates of completion for each individual module completed and will gain tremendous value and knowledge to take back to your workplace. If you decide after attending a module or two that you wish to graduate from the entire program and receive the Driven to Lead diploma, the missed module can be scheduled to be completed at a later date.

For more information, or to register to attend, please email info@pmtc.ca, call our office at 905-827-0587, or visit www.pmtc.ca. In order to achieve peak participation and value, class size is capped at 25, so register today before it’s to late!

New Research Findings: Labour Market Impacts of COVID-19 for Canada’s National Trucking Industry

Trucking HR Canada released the second report in a series focused on assessing labour market impacts of COVID-19. This report includes updated insights of how COVID-19 is affecting trucking and logistics employment, and what can be expected for employers in the industry in the next three years. This second stage of the report presents a labour market forecast and shares results based on the ramifications of COVID-19. In the forecast, we learn that:

  • Over the first two quarters of 2020, employment in the trucking and logistics sector is expected to contract by 10.4%, or 72,000 jobs, due to COVID-19. We expect a 10.9% contraction among truck drivers and 10.0% decline among non-truck driver occupations.
  • Given anticipated retirements and other labour outflows from the truck driver occupation, there is a strong indication that, by 2023, labour demand is unlikely to be fully met, which would mean a return to driver shortages.
  • We estimate that COVID-19 and its economy-wide impacts will result in declines in truck driver employment that cost the truck transportation industry approximately $3.2 billion in sales in 2020.

On July 9, the Government of Canada held a briefing to share this important update with officials and ultimately aid in good decision making for the industry. Trucking HR Canada partnered with The Conference Board of Canada to undertake research assessing the labour impacts of Covid-19 on the trucking and logistics sector. This forecast is designed to help us better understand what employers might expect down the road in terms of post-COVID economic rebound projections, forecasts of employment as well as estimates on expected employment losses.
