Employers: You still have time to complete the Employer One Survey! 

Workforce Planning Hamilton has had a great response from our local community to the Employer One Survey! Thanks to all the employers who have completed the survey and to our partners who have shared the survey with their contacts.

If you are a local business owner or human resources manager and haven't completed the survey we still need to hear from you. The survey will be open until February 5, 2016.

Any questions can be directed to Viktor Cicman at 905-521-5777, or viktorcicman@workforceplanninghamilton.ca

The State, Impact and Future of Business Education in Canada: Employer/Business Focus Groups

The Conference Board of Canada is hosting a focus group on February 5th (12pm @ the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce office) for employers and other non-academic stakeholders in Hamilton.

The focus group aims to learn more about the perspectives of employers on the state of business education in Canada. It will explore questions related to what they look for in a candidate; whether they see graduates as well prepared to do their job; and whether and how their business partners with a university, college or polytechnic for training or research/advice.

If you have any questions about the focus groups or the project, please contact Michele Mastroeni, Senior Research Associate, The Conference Board of Canada, by email: (mastroeni@conferenceboard.ca) or by phone (613-526-3090 ext. 474).
