TORONTO, Ont. — Cerno Research Inc. recently published the latest report focusing on the compensation and benefits practices of the Canadian trucking and logistics operations.
The 2003 Trucking Operations Reports are the only annual reports covering the trucking industry in Canada featuring both national and regional results.
Produced in partnership with the Canadian Trucking Alliance and associated with provincial trucking organizations, the report is based on survey data collected from 488 Canadian trucking operations.
The wage levels of more than 270,000 employees are represented in 108 different job descriptions ranging from junior employees to senior executives.
“This year we experienced an incredible 76 per cent growth in national response to our trucking industry survey. I attribute much of this growth to a widening understanding that accurate and timely research into changes in the employment marketplace is not only advisable, but also critical,” says Stephen Harrington, special projects director for Cerno Research.
Harrington says despite the continued sluggishness in the U.S. economy, growth appears stable in Canada. He says there is a growing gap between companies that have had to hold pay increases steady over the last few years and those that have continued to compete for new employees.
