Employers: We are in the final stretch for the EmployerOne Survey
Workforce Planning Hamilton thanks the close to 200 employers who have completed the EmployerOne survey this year!

vacancies, hiring plans, recruitment strategies and challenges.
In particular we'd like to hear from companies in:
Health care and Social Assistance
Accommodation and Food Services
Transportation and Warehousing
Real Estate, Rental and Leasing
Other Services (Repair and Maintenance, Personal and Laundry Services; Religion, Grant Making)

The results of the survey will help to create a strong workforce for our city!
