Good news, Greater Montréal’s environment for human resources management has remained relatively stable since the metropolitan area also ranked 3rd in the North American rankings in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Aon Hewitt’s 2013 People Risk Index assigned ratings relative to risk for 30 qualitative and quantitative factors across five broad areas:

  • Demographics (e.g. aging population)
  • Education System (e.g. tertiary education enrollment)
  • Government Support (e.g. corruption)
  • Talent Development (e.g. languages spoken)
  • Employment Practices (e.g. labor relations) : this category has 10 factors that are weighted by 50%
