We are excited to release both the Western Canada and Saskatchewan HR Trends Reports. This survey wouldn’t be possible without the cooperation of our fellow CPHR Canada associations: CPHR BC & Yukon, CPHR Alberta, and CPHR Manitoba. #WeAreCPHR
Workforces are growing again – and salaries are, too
HR professionals across Western Canada are preparing for new hires. Organizations expecting a positive change in employment outnumber those expecting a decline by almost three-to-one. Salaries are expected to rise across all reporting sectors, and in all provinces in the report.
Opioids and marijuana are getting workplace attention
While a majority of organizations have a policy that sufficiently addresses alcohol, only a third of workplaces have one that addresses opioids and only 15% have one that addresses legalised marijuana. However, 30% of organizations are either creating or preparing to roll out a policy to address legalised marijuana.
New policies to address discrimination are on the radar
‘Blind hiring’ – where names of applicants are hidden to remove bias during hiring – is being rolled out by employers. While only 3% of workplaces are either already practicing this or preparing to implement the policy, over a third of organizations are looking for data on the practice before adopting a similar policy.
CPHR Saskatchewan has commissioned in collaboration with Abingdon Public Opinion Research Firm to help fill the labour information void for its members and to discover industry benchmarks that can help human resources professionals make better talent management decisions.
