Hamilton's larger employers needed to complete the Employer One Survey in December

Workforce Planning Hamilton will be releasing our annual Employer One Survey to local large employers in December to give them a head start on completing this valuable survey.

This year, to celebrate WPH's 20th Anniversary, the survey is shorter (only 20 questions) and should take most people 20 minutes, or less, to complete.

The information gleaned from large employers, those who have 500+ employees is crucial so that job seekers, training institutions, and the wider community have an understanding of job growth and decline in our area.

WPH staff will be sending out a pdf of the survey and a survey link to larger employers starting in early December.
