This is not a sector in slow down.
We recently released our 2020 Tech Salary Survey, which we manage in partnership with Mercer Canada. The 2020 survey, which has data from over 22,000 incumbents at 150 BC and Alberta tech companies and tech divisions, provides some pretty eye-opening information on the state of the sector.
For example, despite a pandemic –
- the average planned 2020 headcount growth in Digital Media and Gaming is 17%
- the average planned 2020 headcount growth in Life Sciences is 27%
In 2021, Clean Tech companies are planning, on average, 16% growth in headcount.
