Salopek & Associates Ltd., a firm based in Calgary, Alberta, has announced that they have several openings available for Ottawa consulting services on human resource management. These will be handled by the firm’s team of business and human resource consultants who specialize in strategy and board governance. Janet Salopek, the founder of the company, recalls that she grew up in a farm just outside of Ottawa in Cedar Hill and went to school in Almonte and Pakenham. She regularly returns to the Ottawa Valley to support the firm’s consulting team and visit clients.
Jane Salopek says, “Our firm has been serving clients in the area for over ten years. We are proud of the fact that our clients are from very diverse sectors and that 40% of our business is from the non-profit sector. Our consultant is a certified human resource leader, bilingual with 20 plus years’ experience in various areas, such as organizational development, human resource strategy, performance management, and more.”
Salopek & Associates has experienced working with several clients at the board and management level. The company’s consultants are skilled and experienced in a number of human resources management areas.

The clients they have been involved with include non-governmental organizations, professional associations, manufacturing, construction, information technology, medical/health care, and sports. One client had recently given their senior consultant a 9/10 score on work that has been completed and reported that all of the objectives of the project have been met. The client noted that the consultant was excellent and responded to each request from the client. Thus, the client will recommend Salopek & Associates to other companies.
