How Do Alberta’s Top Employers Stand Out Against the Rest?

This September, the 14th annual Alberta’s Top Employers list was released, and while the challenges connected to our struggling energy sector were felt deeply by many, Alberta’s leading workplaces persevered, ensuring business survival and even enabling their organizations to thrive during trying economic times. 

In an economy as tough as this one, it’s worth taking note of how top employers are standing out in their respective industries while attracting, engaging, and retaining top talent. Of the 75 winning employers, two key trends were discovered: resiliency and retention

What resilience means, and why it matters. 

Resilience is the ability to quickly adapt, overcome, and grow in response to disruptions. In business, resilience can be measured by how well an organization withstands setbacks, pressures, and crises all while sustaining business operations, protecting people, assets, and the overall brand. For Alberta employers, resilience is critical to survival. 

Are you doing enough to retain your best employees? 

Employee turnover is expensive. According to Josh Bersin of Bersin by Deloitte, the total cost of losing an employee can range from tens of thousands of dollars to 1.5 to 2 times their annual salary. Think critically and strategically about how well your organization’s employee retention program is working. Ask yourself how you can better serve your team. 

Who you hire is who you choose to drive your company forward. 

During hard times especially, you must have the right team of accounting and finance professionals who understand your industry, cash flow needs, and expansion plans, and can help you create and execute a strategic action plan that sustains your business.
