Staffing Challenges for BC Businesses

In September, on behalf of BCBusiness, Mustel Group surveyed 101 businesses across the province about whether they were affected by staffing shortages. The questions were based on takeaways from a BC Chamber of Commerce poll conducted last spring, but the results have been broken down differently.

Business size was a factor in responses to the question: “In the past year, have you had positions you were unable to fill for six months or more?” Although nearly 30 percent of respondents overall replied yes, that rose to 47.5 percent for businesses with five or more employees, compared to just 18 percent with four or fewer.
