If the GoA continues to have a salary freeze, they will likely encounter challenges with retention and attraction of top talent. The recruitment procedure is so regimented that people with advanced skills are overlooked because they don't meet the MRS (Minimum Recruitment Standards). It is my opinion that the MRS is too regimented and results in candidates not being assessed on their value to the organization.
I feel that the Government of Alberta is secure in the future.
Anything can happen, anything is possible.
