Meet Yes! Winnipeg's Talent Team

YES! Winnipeg's Talent team focuses on workforce development, talent attraction and retention. We leverage expertise in market intelligence, business development as well as marketing and branding alongside strong partnerships to ensure local companies can access deep talent pools and reach and retain the right people at the right time.  

Our goal is to save local businesses time and money while enhancing the attractiveness of our city as an investment destination.  

How can we help?

  • Analyze gaps: Undertake a comprehensive skills gap analysis of business talent now and in the short-term and medium-term future.
  • Inventory resources: Offer an inventory of what our partners in this jurisdiction are doing to attract, retain and develop talent for business and how they are focusing their activity in the space.
  • Identify channels: Provide a menu of local, national and international channels available to local businesses for finding talent.
  • Align education and industry: Work with government, education institutions and partners to align academia and industry, with a focus on co-op student programs and international student recruitment.
  • Create a talent toolkit for business: Give access to a toolkit of resources and assets to help Winnipeg companies attract skilled workers globally.
  • Conduct local, national and international talent recruitment missions: Plan talent recruitment missions focused on key markets where we understand specific talent pools are available and where non-local candidates will find life in Winnipeg an attractive option.
