Labour Force December 2022
Review Hamilton's Labour Force Information for December 2022
EmployerOne Survey 2023!
Workforce Planning Hamilton (WPH) in partnership with the City of Hamilton's Economic Development Office have launched the 2023 EmployerOne Survey. This survey features important workforce development questions, and focuses on the challenges businesses have endured throughout the global pandemic. Hamilton employers across all industries have the opportunity to share their experiences and concerns.
While census information offers us an understanding of labour market trends, the EmployerOne Survey provides an up-to-date snapshot of the Hamilton labour market and insights into how we can continue to move our economy forward. It also keeps us in touch with a wide range of employers of all sectors and sizes.
This survey has approximately 30 questions and will take 15 minutes to complete. The findings will only be published in an aggregated form to maintain the confidentiality of all survey respondents.
Employers who complete the survey have the chance to be entered into a draw to win a booth at the upcoming 'Connect to Careers' conference (valued at over $700)
EmployerOne Completion Badge!
Employers (for-profit business, not-for-profit business, or registered charity) completing the 2023 EmployerOne survey will provide Workforce Planning Hamilton and the City of Hamilton with critical and timely data on business and workforce needs in Hamilton. Every organization that completes this survey is demonstrating their commitment to charting an evidence-based course for our future.
Upon completion of the EmployerOne survey, you can proudly display this badge to showcase your support in providing such critical data on the workforce needs of Hamilton businesses.

We are looking to hear from employers in these sectors
The current global economic slowdown is likely to force more workers to accept lower quality, poorly paid jobs that lack job security and social protection, accentuating inequalities exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis, according to a new ILO report.
This report identifies which competencies have become easier for CDPs since the move to virtual services and which areas have become harder. It then highlights the worries CDPs have moving forward with virtual service delivery and provides recommendations for supporting CDPs and their clients.
This report is based on a pan-Canadian scan of anti-racism policy and legislation; data from the 2021-22 Annual Ontario School Survey; and findings from a scan of the websites of Ontario’s 72 publicly funded school boards. The report points to a particular lag in implementation of Ontario’s anti-racism and equity strategies for schools.
Be kind to yourself: Work-life wellness when working from home
Living through this pandemic has been challenging in so many ways. Even though it’s not a fair comparison, it can be easy to feel guilty when our work or personal life is not at the same standard it was pre-pandemic. We’ve had to radically change our personal and work lives to be safe, including working from home for many of us.
Working from home can be a mixed bag. It can be an absolute nightmare when your chair is uncomfortable, your kid is crying and your office is in the kitchen. On the flip side, working from home can also be a dream when you no longer have to commute and you are able to cook your lunch on the stove and walk the dog for a break. Every person experiences working from home a little differently, depending on their personality, work environment, personal life and other factors.
Being kind to yourself is integral, recognizing that you have done your best to adapt to working from home along with overhauling your life to accommodate social distancing and health regulations. However, simply pausing and remembering to prioritize work-life wellness can be challenging when the world seems to be turning upside down. Many people are overworking and forgetting to switch off at the end of the day.
What can we do about it?
One recommendation is to set up a wellness prompt for yourself: “Breathe.” “How are you feeling?” “Go for a walk.” You could put a reminder in your phone, add it as a task on your to-do list or ask a friend to check in. Scheduling your wellness time just like you would schedule a meeting helps increase the chances that it will get done.
