Nearly half of Canadian construction companies (49 per cent) and one third of property and facilities firms (33 per cent) plan to increase their staff levels in the next year, according to a survey conducted by Hays Canada which polled over 3,500 respondents from 20 industries.
To help Canadians search for answers about employment opportunities, Hays Canada launched the Hays Canada Salary Centre (www.hays.ca/salaryguide), designed to help educate employers and potential employees.
The Hays Salary Centre is a starting point for Canadians looking for current information about the Construction and Property industry and how their employment expectations measure up against real industry standards. Job seekers and professionals can search within 10 industry sectors: general construction, road building and heavy construction, mechanical engineering, environmental engineering, high-rise residential construction, property management, leasing, operations and maintenance, facilities management and support staff.
By entering a few details, such as employment area, experience and geographic location individuals can discover their expected salary, job description, benefits, and the requirements necessary to fulfill that role based on today’s market.
The Salary Centre uses data from Hays Canada’s 2013 Compensation, Benefits, Recruitment and Retention Guide. This survey is the only one of its kind in Canada and the most extensive study available, making the Salary Centre a unique tool o those Canadians looking to shift industries, move to a new location or just entering the workforce.
