2010 Canadian Tourism Sector Compensation Study

The CTHRC Research Team needs your help to find out.

As an employer, you can’t change economic or labour market trends, but you CAN change the way you respond to these issues.  To attract, recruit, and retain skilled workers for peak performance in your workplace, you need to show your employees that your compensation package is competitive.

The Canadian Tourism Human Resource Council (CTHRC) and our provincial partners are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2010 Canadian Tourism Sector Compensation Study.

We encourage all businesses to participate in the survey on benefits and HR practices by November 30th.  The survey takes between 10 – 15 minutes to complete and once finished, you will be asked to submit compensation data for your business/organization either online or using an Excel spreadsheet.  All resulting data will be made freely available but individual information is kept anonymous and used only in aggregate form.

Tourism associations and organizations, this is your chance to email your members and encourage them to participate.  Compensation data is the most requested form of research – 86% of tourism employers and HR personnel are very interested in knowing local compensation rates for tourism occupations. By encouraging your members to participate you will help ensure they receive the data they need and increased business participation motivated by your encouragement will generate higher quality data that is specific to region and industry.  To reduce your workload, the CTHRC has prepared a short email that explains what is involved and the benefits of participation.  For access to this email, please contact Calum MacDonald

The 2010 Canadian Tourism Sector Compensation Study is conducted by Hay Group on behalf of the CTHRC, along with provincial/territorial tourism Human Resource Organizations (HROs), Group Lockhart Inc., the Canadian Restaurant and Food Services Association, the Greater Toronto Hotel Association, and the Ontario Restaurant, Hotel & Motel Association.  For more information, please email Calum MacDonald.
