Canadians say high-tech manufacturing is one of the most desirable sectors for employment, according to a new study from Randstad Canada. About 47.5 per cent of the survey’s 7,000 respondents said high-tech manufacturing was the most desirable sector in which to work, just slightly less than the 48 per cent who chose engineering and construction, which ranked first in the survey.Respondents ranked manufacturing in first place, though, for competitive salary, interesting job content, career progression opportunities, good training, work-life balance and strong management. Other popular sectors were transport and logistics (46.4 per cent), raw materials (42.6 per cent) and services (41.9 per cent).
