The fork in the road: What Canadian employers expect from 2015

Posted by Rowan O'Grady, Hays Canada President, on Tuesday, Jan 6, 2015

Salary Guide infographic blog 1 2015Canadian employers are optimistic about 2015 with a record number saying the Canadian economy will strengthen and business activity will increase.

Canadian companies’ resilience to pushing ahead with meeting growth plans is an imperative element to Canadian business success. Not to mention, this “can-do attitude” and constant looking ahead, makes our job at Hays so enjoyable, as we continue to help employers with achieving their growth targets.

However, this potential growth could prove difficult to achieve as employers try to stretch current workforces to do more. Some face severe talent shortages, while others are trying to maintain tight margins and low headcounts. Either way this leaves current employees stressed and overworked – as reflected in the survey responses showing that stress leave has gone up and employee morale has gone down.

Based on the findings of this year’s Hays Canada Salary Guide, 2015 could prove to have a fork in the road for employers. Those that chose to stay the course and remain primarily focused on hitting their goals with their business as is could see the reverse outcome of worsened productivity and an unhappy or unstable workforce.

However, those who chose to address their internal workplace issues through hiring temporary staff and implementing internal training could see their business plans being met or superseded through a more efficient workforce.
