Accurate, local, validated data to help guide your talent strategy: sounds pretty great, doesn’t it?

Communitech – along with our friends at BenchMarket – is on a mission to gather and provide data that will shed light on compensation, recruitment and retention policies in Waterloo Region tech.


Access to the data will allow your company to compare current policies to benchmarked figures within the Region and Ontario. As well, your input will give us a more accurate look at how our community compares to other major tech centres.


Discounted access will be available to participants.


Once you sign up, BenchMarket will guide you through the process from start to finish; they’re very friendly and are happy to help you along the way.
