Resource Centre

Employment Trends Survey Now Available

The HRPA Resource Centre often receives requests from members seeking up-to-date benchmarking data to help them make informed HR decisions. Unfortunately, there are currently no sources within our collection that satisfy this need. In order to fill this gap in our knowledge, and to help us provide a better service to our members, the Resource Centre created a survey to gather information on as many different employment topics as possible.
The major sections of the surveys reflect the most popular benchmarking requests we receive at the Resource Centre: vacation, time off, recruitment, training and turnover. A miscellaneous section containing a variety of data that doesn’t quite fit into the major themes is also included at the end of the report.
The 2014 Employment Trends Survey is available now and can be downloaded for free by all members of HRPA.
Note: Once you click the above link, you must sign into your HRPA profile in order to download the report for free. Once you’ve logged in, you will see your price listed as “$0.00”. Click “Add to Cart”, and then click “Pay Now-Secure Online Payment, Printable Receipt”. A confirmation e-mail titled “Your Purchase Information” will then be e-mailed to your address on file. This e-mail will contain a link near the bottom labeled “Since you purchased a downloadable product from the On-line Catalog, click here to access your file”, which will allow you to download the report.
Contact Jeff Smith at if you have any problems accessing the report.
