Survey demonstrates value of designation and highlights gender gap
We are pleased to share the results of the National Salary Survey. A group of HR associations across Canada came together to conduct a National Salary Survey using the third-party survey company, Insights West. The purpose of the survey was to better understand:
- HR salaries, benefits, and other compensation
- Job responsibilities
- Acquisition and benefit of HR designations
- Professional development activities.
It is important to gain better insights into the HR profession, but also to better understand professional development for HR professionals and the value of our professional designations.
Overall, we found that the survey results demonstrate both a perceived and actual value for designation. In addition, the profession is more educated and positioned to take on a more strategic role within companies. It is an exciting time to be part of the HR profession – and a time of opportunity.
