Hamilton Employers: YOU are the experts we need to hear from!
If you do one survey in the new year…this is the one to complete, 20 questions for 2020! On an annual basis Workforce Planning Hamilton (WPH) uses the EmployerOne survey to take the pulse of the local labour market.

To help combat a skills and jobs mismatch WPH’s EmployerOne Survey pinpoints the occupations available in Hamilton and the gaps that are occurring as employers have difficulty finding qualified workers. 

Last year we surveyed 326 employers and found that the majority of employers (84%) planned to hire in 2019.

By completing this survey, employers are eligible to win a free booth at the Connect to Careers Job Fair on March 5, 2020 (a $600+ value and access to over 2,500 students and recent grads).

The survey will be live January 2nd. The survey link will be shared in early January.
