On the whole, employees in Quebec are very satisfied with their employers, according to a new survey by the province's HR association.

The survey of 1,003 workers by the Ordre des CRHA et CRIA du Québec (ORHRI), found 90 per cent of them are satisfied with the independence they have on the job, 86 per cent are satisfied with the work environment in their organization and 86 per cent are satisfied with their employer's reputation.

"These are three of the elements that define employers of choice. That's why it's encouraging to see that many Quebec employers clearly understand current HR management issues and are integrating them into their organizations," said Florent Francoeur, ORHRI president and CEO.
