IT salary survey in Quebec

What is a salary survey?

Almost all businesses, regardless of their size, use as much market data as possible to make decisions. They do not rely on rumours, web postings or anecdotal information to manage their business.

When total payroll represents 70% of a company’s IT expenses in Quebec, human resources managers should do the same.

The 2019 edition of the salary survey provides salary data for more than 80 benchmark jobs. In addition to base salaries, you will find information on bonuses, retirement plans, group insurance plans and even HR trends. The report will be available in September.
