Attracting and retaining workers has become a high priority for Canadian businesses, and that trend will continue into 2019, according to a Morneau Shepell survey.

“Employee turnover has become the top concern, with two-thirds of employers really wanting to focus on employee engagement,” said J.P. Girard, senior vice-president for Western Canada at Morneau Shepell in Halifax.

“As employers, executives in the C-suite, we need to make sure that every single employee in the organization understands why the work they do matters and what it means to the overall strategic direction of the organization.”
