Area of Interest: Pensions, Benefits, Investments, Networking Format: Web

An online seminar hosted by CPBI Southern Alberta 

Please join us for an online seminar on September 22, 2022.

Over the past couple of years plan sponsors have been facing increasing pressures with regards to retaining and attracting employees.

The new reality of work is comprised of office, hybrid and home workers, which presents unique challenges when developing or reviewing a compensation package that will provide what these three groups of workers may be looking for.

Join us for a moderated Q&A where speakers Brent Dul, Executive VP,  Integrated Talent Solutions at Randstad and Carolyn Kildare, Principal, Career Services at Mercer Canada discusses the current labour market, employee concerns with the current work environment, budgeting for total compensation, and finally what makes plan sponsors successful in attracting and retaining employees.


Members who register for this event will be sent a coupon code to bring a non-member as a guest for no charge

Brent Dul
Executive Vice-President, Integrated Talent Solutions

Raised and residing in Edmonton, Brent Dul graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Arts (Major: Political Sciences, Minor: Native Studies) and furthered his education by completing his MBA through Athabasca University.

Shortly after graduating from the University of Alberta, Brent began his professional career with the Government of Alberta working as a Legislative Advisor. Brent then joined Randstad in 2007 and has since held many roles up to his current position of Executive Vice President of Integrated Talent Solutions.

Brent and his teams are accustomed to working with a diverse client base who require rapid responses and qualified candidates to meet their specific departmental needs. Beyond identifying talent, Brent works with his clients to develop retention and engagement strategies to maximize talent potential.  The scope of Brent’s client base is made up of various sectors including Finance and Insurance, the Public Sector, Manufacturing, Logistics and Distribution and Energy.

As an avid sports fan, Brent has always believed that ‘the harder you work, the luckier you get’ and remains active in the community continuing to coach amateur athletes.  He believes in making the most of every opportunity to learn and develop, and frequently shares his story of spending his summers working as a teenager ‘operating a shovel and a broom’ and how that helped him in becoming an Executive at Canada’s largest Staffing and Recruitment firm.
