Forging business-labour partnerships : the emergence of sector councils in Canada ( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 158 libraries worldwide
The recent emergence of joint business-labour sector councils represents a major innovation in Canadian industrial relations. The federal government and certain provincial governments have developed these councils as a key component of their human-resource development initiative. This collection brings together the views of economists, political scientists, and industrial-relations specialists on this important experiment. The authors suggest that, despite its innovative spirit, the sectoral initiative is fragile. Its future viability and wider diffusion depend on mutual trust and the long-term commitment of labour, management, and governments. Still, the consensus-building approach is seen as a remarkable achievement in Canada's adversarial institutional climate, with the potential to transform the nature and direction of Canadian labour-management relationships. In bringing together a wide range of views on sector councils, this book is a singular resource for all those interested in industrial relations, labour economics, and public policy

"Ian Stewart was a major force in public policy research, analysis and advice in Ottawa from the mid-1960's to the early 1980's. In his work as a public servant Ian continually brought solid research and analysis to public policy issues, including the role of the state. As we deal with the many challenges ahead, we need more of this approach. This volume contains contributions from leading Canadian researchers and policy advisers that discuss - in the tradition of Ian Stewart - specific public policy issues and the role of an intelligent government in addressing them."--Back cover

Human capital and productivity in British Columbia a productivity discussion paper by Alexander Murray( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
In 2007, the BC Progress Board identified British Columbia's lagging productivity growth as a major concern for both the public and private sectors. The Board commissioned the Centre for the Study of Living Standards (CSLS) to write a report on productivity drivers in British Columbia and to suggest strategic areas for improvement. The report identified five areas for improvement: investment, education, innovation, resource reallocation, and trade and migration. The present report examines the strategic area of education, or human capital. The body of the report contains a discussion of how human capital is measured and what is known about its effects on productivity and other economic outcomes; an overview of human capital infrastructure in British Columbia; an analysis of the province's human capital development outcomes; a discussion of two populations with unique human capital challenges--recent immigrants and Aboriginal people; and policy recommendations relevant to each of the four human capital challenge areas for improvement.--Includes text from document
