Strengthen your recruitment and retention efforts with salaries and benefits that align with industry standards.

BioTalent Canada’s National Compensation Guide is an essential piece of any organization’s human resources department. Today’s workers look at more than a base salary. To compete for talent, bio-economy companies need to offer current and compelling compensation packages.

Even companies with limited resources can improve their offerings with competitive salaries and benefits such as a healthcare spending account, professional development opportunities, creative offerings that promote employee wellness, mentoring, coaching, flexible hours, and more.

This compensation guide, now in its eighth edition, reviews more than 50 job functions within the Canadian bio-economy. It includes a general job description and experience level, essential skills and education needed to perform a role effectively, and an overview of salaries and benefits.

New In 2023: National Occupational Standards

Additionally, many roles featured in the guide have been updated to include, for the very first time, information from the National Occupational Standards for Canada’s bio-economy.

The addition of the National Occupational Standards strengthens the Compensation Guide and makes it even more valuable to human resources professionals working in the biotech sector.

The 2023 Compensation Guide enables organizations large and small to design recruitment and retention strategies that give them a competitive edge in the intensifying war for talent.
