What is the employerone Survey?

 

To better understand what is happening across northern Ontario, six workforce planning boards from across the north are calling on local employers to help identify their labour market needs through the employerone Survey project.

While employers in the north have participated in various partnership projects and sector-specific research with local planning boards in the past, the employer one survey is different. Employers across various industries will be asked to complete a survey specific to the current & projected needs of their business. Employers will be asked questions about the demographics of their workforce, projected vacancies, recruitment strategies & challenges, their perspective on candidate skills, education & training, top competencies needed in their business, as well as any ongoing concerns.

This highly detailed project will involve the participation of individuals and firms, and we ask that you join us in this very unique & important project. The end result will be a labour market snapshot of what issues & challenges are affecting your business & industry. This information is vital to implementing strategies that can support local businesses & help them thrive & succeed locally.

We hope we can count on your participation. The success of this project depends on your critical feedback!

 

Why should I complete the survey?

 

employerone reasons

 

These are the kind of things that we need to know about your workforce. Your feedback will allow us to develop & implement strategies to address your workforce development issues.
