Human Resources

Salary survey

Every two years, the QFMA carries out a salary survey among its members. Thanks to the  majority who take part, the survey has become a reliable and credible tool. For close to 15 years, the QFMA has surveyed between 1,100 and 7,000 industry workers about various areas of remuneration including salaries, social benefits, profit sharing and paid vacation. The end report is a strategic management tool that is essential to effective human resource planning and management.

 

The last salary survey was carried out in 2015.

Workforce Sectoral Committee

In Quebec, a number of Workforce Sectoral Committees were created  to help companies train and develop their employees. A QFMA representative sits on the board of directors of the Workforce Sectoral Committee for the doors and windows industry and the furniture and kitchen cabinets industry.


Since 1994, this committee has been  active developing a number of services including workforce training, human resources management, worker skills recognition, the development of training manuals for our core businesses, and the identification of specific needs in each of our sectors of activity. These services are easily accessible to our members, at all times.
