2014 Hire Learning Survey: The complete series of results

Did you know that permanent full-time positions are the most common type of jobs available in Hamilton? Hamilton employers have a generally positive employment outlook for 2014. These are some of the results discovered by WPH as we release the results of the first annual Hire Learning Survey (HLS).

Over 150 employers completed the survey, sharing their real-time labour market information.  The HLS is part of WPH's Hire Learning Initiative, which includes a series of quarterly job vacancy reports.
