One of the key results of the LHC Run 1 was the observation of an enhanced production of strange particles in high multiplicity pp and p-Pb collisions at 7 and 5.02 TeV, respectively. In this contribution, the energy dependence of this phenomenon is addressed by new measurements of strange and multi-strange particle production in p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV and $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 8.16 TeV as function of transverse momentum and multiplicity. The large statistics sample collected during the LHC Run 2 is used. The strangeness enhancement is investigated by measuring the evolution with multiplicity of single-strange and multi-strange baryon production relative to non-strange particles. The results from pp, p-Pb and Pb-Pb are compared to each other as well as to statistical hadronisation models and Monte Carlo predictions.
