The 2020 EmployerOne Survey aims to better understand local workforce impacts and needs as employers adapt to a new economic landscape
WITH THE EFFECTS of the Covid-19 pandemic continuing to impact the region’s workforce and economy, the Elgin Middlesex Oxford Workforce Planning and Development Board is inviting local employers to complete a needs assessment survey to determine what community support they would need to bring employees back and to support the hiring of new employees as the economy opens post-Covid-19 pandemic.
The Employer Needs Assessment for Recovery survey is designed to collect information specific to the impact of Covid-19 on a range of workforce activities and issues including hiring plans, recruitment strategies, hard-to-fill positions, top skills and workforce challenges.
All information collected will be grouped together in a report and shared publicly for regional and local planning purposes.
The EmployerOne Survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and all answers given will be treated in strict confidence and they will be used for statistical purposes and published in aggregate form only. The survey will be open until September 18.
The findings from the survey will be available in a report posted on October 8 on www.workforcedevelopment.ca and webinars will also be delivered to interested parties.
