This compendium summarizes results from the Workplace and Employee Survey conducted by Statistics Canada from 1999 to 2005. The data provide a dynamic view of evolving workplaces and their employees through examples showing the use of the data in cross-sectional, longitudinal and linked analyses.

This issue, the third and final in the Workplace and Employee Survey Compendium series, is organized in four sections covering labour market dynamics, market environments, workplace performance, and compensation practices . This structure is based on the notion that workplaces act upon and respond to their micro- and macro-environments using a wide array of business strategies, such as compensation strategies and innovative work practices. These interactions between workers, workplaces and environments give rise to labour dynamics as workplaces strive to achieve a desirable level of performance and productivity.
