Work-life Balance Influences Retention


    The top three drivers that influence attraction and retention of talent in Canada are work-life balance, diversity, and the opportunity to be involved in interesting, meaningful work, says the ‘Kelly Global Workforce Index.’ It shows Canadian workers were as likely to rate their employers highly on promoting work-life balance, as their global counterparts (66 per cent versus 67 per cent respectively). Canadian employers also received their highest ratings on being environmentally friendly/having responsible work practices (65 per cent) and on their diversity/equal opportunities record (64 per cent). Another 58 per cent of Canadian workers rated their employer highly on giving them opportunities to be involved in interesting, meaningful work.
