- Competition from US-based companies increasing pressure for local market to provide attractive compensation packages
- Base salaries for accounting and finance professionals increased by 5-15% in the last six months
- Career growth a leading factor to attracting and retaining talent
- Flexibility a key priority for many considering career move, with work-life balance and burnout prevention top of mind
Vancouver, BC, July 13, 2022 – Demand for leading accounting and finance professionals continues to be strong with local companies facing even further pressure to attract talent as US-based organizations enter the Vancouver market.
In a recent poll conducted by Impact Recruitment, 33% of respondents said, aside from compensation, potential for career growth is the most important consideration when joining a new company. Employers providing learning and development opportunities, exemplary mentorship programs, and promoting from within, are much less likely to face challenges with retention.
Impact, a leading multi-disciplinary recruitment firm, launches the 2022 Salary Guide: Accounting + Finance Edition for the Greater Vancouver area to highlight these current hiring trends and provide up-to-date salary data for accounting and finance professionals in the local market.
“High demand for accounting and finance professionals, especially highly technical and specialized roles, continues across most sectors. Even with a potential recession looming, attracting and retaining talent remains a priority,” said Jeffrey David Harris, Founder and CEO of Impact Recruitment and AmbiMi. “Companies embracing flexible work arrangements – work from home or hybrid models – are coming out ahead of their competitors.”
Flexibility is a key factor for many professionals considering a career move, with more emphasis being placed on work-life balance and burnout prevention in recent years. In a recent poll conducted by Impact, 28% of candidates said flexibility matters more to them than an increase in compensation when considering a job offer from an employer.
