Hamilton employers: Get ready for the Employer One Survey!
The Employer One Survey (formerly known as the Hire Learning Survey) is an outstanding opportunity for local employers, like you, to share their hiring needs, challenges, and plans for the future with Workforce Planning Hamilton.
By taking the time to answer the survey you help to build a strong local workforce as the information that you provide is shared with job seekers and the agencies that aid them, as well as the community.
Employer One is open from January 4 - 31, 2016 and the survey link will be posted in our newsletter on December 17th, as well as be featured on our site at
If you have any questions about Employer One please contact Judy Travis, Executive Director, WPH at 905-521-5777 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
