About the Study
This current study is an update to EHRC’s 2011 LMI entitled “Power in Motion”. The aim of this study is to build an updated body of knowledge to inform and improve the electricity industry’s capability in workforce planning, regulatory filing and organizational planning—particularly as it relates to identifying training, programming and curriculum requirements to mitigate business risk related to human resource management.
The study provides both real-time current information and long-term (up to 2022) estimates/assessment of labour demand and supply specifically for the electricity and renewable energy industry.
Under the strategic guidance of the National LMI Advisory Committee, the methodology includes an environmental scan, primary research (including the administration of a national survey of employers to collect data on labour demand), key informant interviews, and a survey of educational institutions to assess supply side factors.
Critical information gathered through this study on the labour market and current and future human resources needs assists decision-makers within industry, government and education in identifying and planning for these needs accurately and effectively. Information gathered through this study will be used to:
- Inform organizations on what skills are available in the workforce and what gaps need to be filled;
- Support human resources (HR) and organizational planning;
- Brief senior managers in your organization on the issues and priorities for HR;
- Brief regulators and other stakeholders on the issues, costs and initiatives for HR development in your organization;
- Coordinate labour market analysis with other industries and sector councils;
- Inform educational planners, career advisors, teachers, parents and job seekers about opportunities in the sector, what education and training to pursue and the extent to which educational credentials will be measured, accredited and transferable;
- Identify the range of workplace skills required: employers are increasingly looking for workers with multi-faceted competencies—not just technical knowledge, but also so-called “soft skills” such as collaboration and teamwork, problem-solving, leadership;
- Guide decisions on immigration and inform potential immigrants about opportunities in the electricity industry, and the skills they need; and
- Inform government policy makers and the general public on labour market conditions and HR priorities.
