Alberta HR Trends

HR Trends Alberta

It is clear to Salopek & Associates that our clients understand the importance of keeping on top of business and HR trends. Staying ahead of the curve and understanding the market they are competing in is important to growing their business and attracting and retaining the talent they need to be successful.

Having shared the HRIA’s initial Alberta HR Trends Report in early 2014, Salopek received amazing feedback from contacts, clients and media alike interested in better understanding these trends and how they applied to their business and strategic plans. With the HRIA launching the 2nd edition of the Alberta HR Trends Report, we knew this clear and simple info-graphic would be a valuable tool for HR and business professionals alike.

A few new Trends that really caught our attention are:

  • 26% of companies reported doing nothing to reduce resignations – even though the average cost for processing an employee turnover is $15,270.
  • Top 3 Actions to Reduce Resignations:
    1. Better On-boarding
    2. Flexible Work Arrangements
    3. More Team Building Events (Higher Wages, which was previously ranked 3rd, has been bumped off the Top 3 list.)
  • 3 times as many companies reported an increase in employees, with medium sized businesses having the strongest hiring intent.
