The web: a major driver of change Let’s consider Quebec’s economic situation. The province is currently going through a period characterized by a low birth rate and low unemployment. This results in a shortage of talents. In this difficult economic context, how is an employer supposed to attract the best people to fill vacancies? This where the web revolution comes into play.
