This issue briefing looks at promoting hybrid work, the most common action that leaders in Canadian organizations are taking to attract and retain employees.

Document Highlights

  • Promoting hybrid work is the most-common action being taken by leaders to attract new employees, improve employee retention, and reduce voluntary turnover in the current hyper-competitive market for talent.
  • Offering additional incentives to candidates—such as sign-on bonuses, equity awards, perks, or benefits—is something that only one-third of leaders surveyed are considering to help attract new workers.
  • Actions linked to increasing retention efforts are related to increasing effective and strategic internal communications.
  • Fostering collaboration and communication in hybrid work environments can increase retention and decrease voluntary turnover.
