Continued growth is in the forecast for many sectors across the construction industry, but to remain competitive, profitable, and resilient, construction companies need to overcome common and ongoing construction staffing and HR challenges including:

  • Skilled Labour Shortages: The construction industry is facing a significant shortage of skilled labour, including carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and other tradespeople. This shortage is due to a combination of factors, including an aging workforce, a lack of training programs, and competition from other industries.
  • Retention: Retaining skilled workers is a considerable challenge in the construction industry. Many workers leave the industry early due to the physical demands of the job, lack of career advancement opportunities, and the perception of the industry as low-paying and low-skilled.
  • Technology: The construction industry is increasingly relying on technology to improve efficiency and productivity, but this also requires workers to have new skills and knowledge. Companies must not only hire for the skills needed today, but to build a workforce of adaptable labour for the skills of tomorrow.

Build a productive, competitive, and resilient construction workforce with Matrix HR staffing and human resources solutions including temporary labour and temp-to-hire strategies, EOR (Employer of Record) Services, and payroll admin and funding.

Our Skilled Workforce And Employer Partners Say It Best



Civil engineering is critical to the Canadian economy, providing the infrastructure necessary to sustain and support economic growth across a number of industries. This infrastructure facilitates the movement of goods and people and creates demand for labour and materials. The engineering sector is facing staffing challenges including: 

  • An Aging Workforce: According to Engineers Canada over 40% of engineers are 55 years and older. 
  • Lack Of Diversity: Women, Indigenous people, and other minorities are underrepresented in the field of civil engineering. Women make up only 13% and Indigenous people only 1.4% of the workforce.
  • Shortage Of Skilled Engineering Professionals: The field of civil engineering is expected to grow by 25% each year. Without an effective staffing strategy, companies could find themselves struggling to find qualified candidates amid the increased demand.

Matrix HR has in-depth industry insight and experience building innovative staffing strategies to help your organization position itself competitively to attract, hire, and retain the top civil engineering talent in the years to come.



The mining industry provides critical resources for businesses in every sector, worldwide, but the industry faces numerous challenges in staffing and HR including:

  • An Aging Workforce: Many workers in the industry are approaching retirement age, and there is a limited pool of young talent to replace them. This demographic shift can lead to shortages of skilled workers, particularly in positions that require significant experience and knowledge.
  • Talent Competition: Many mining roles, such as geologists, engineers, and heavy equipment operators,  require specialized skills. These skills are also in high demand in other industries, such as construction, oil and gas, and technology, making it difficult for mining companies to attract and retain the best talent.
  • Remote Job Sites: The remote locations of many mines can make it challenging to attract long-term workers. 

Matrix HR has the industry knowledge to provide customized, effective, and comprehensive staffing and HR solutions to mining organizations, globally. When you partner with us, we help you develop the strategies to attract and retain top talent, ensure compliance with labour laws and regulations, enhance employee engagement, and fortify your workforce to meet the challenges of the future.
