Employers are offering Canadian workers more incentives in order to combat the shrinking skilled labour force, according to a new survey.

The survey by online job site CareerBuilder.ca of 246 Canadian employers and 455 employees found employers will become more creative in their recruitment and retention efforts as the baby boomers move closer to retirement.

Some of the incentives they'll offer employees include higher salaries, increased training and more flexible work cultures.
