Our clients often ask us for insights on how various markets compare against one another from a competitiveness perspective as well as the volume of talent. Given we work across most major markets in Canada, as well as a few major US markets, we've always had good anecdotal information but figured data is king and so why not do some research to back up our thoughts.
With that in mind, we've created this Talent Competitiveness Map which currently has data on 10 different cities and 20 different skillsets. Our plan is to update this data every quarter, and add new cities and skills as requested. There are 3 metrics we measured across each city & skill which are # of people, # of jobs, and the "Talent Competitivness Index" (people:job).
We hope you find this useful and if there is a city or skill that you would like to see added to this list, please let us know here.
