Message from the Founder- Janet Salopek

I am proud to introduce you to Salopek & Associates, a company that was born in January of 2006 out of a vision for providing support in Human Resources, Strategy and Board Governance to organizations wanting to partner with strong HR professionals who understood business. I am the founder of Salopek, however, it has grown over the years as a result of the hard work of family members and the excellent work of consultants who have joined our team. Committed to our values of building strong relationships, working with the highest standards of integrity, and demonstrating expert knowledge and skill in the areas that we work, Salopek now consists of a team of consultants working across Canada with a physical presence in Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver and Fort McMurray.

We are a family business. In early days my daughters Amanda and Vanessa, both students at the Haskayne School of business at the time, helped me design our first logo and launch our first web-site. Amanda then joined our company in 2012 and brought with her a marketing and business expertise that elevated our company from a small local organization to a company that was nationally recognized for the work we do. Business needs changed in 2016 and John, my husband, joined as our Business Manager which allowed me to focus on Consulting Services while he looked after all other aspects of the business. Our business evolved again in early 2018 when Vanessa, my youngest daughter, joined the team to lead the marketing division. I feel so fortunate to be able to work and do business with my family!

We are proud of our team and the consultants who service our clients. Many of our consultants have journeyed with the family as we grew the business and have established long term relationships with Salopek and the clients we service. Salopek & Associates has matured and is no longer my baby but rather a team that is recognized for the great work that they do. I am proud to be the Founder of such an awesome group of people and forever grateful to those clients who choose to engage us as their HR and Business Partner.
