What does WPH believe?

Business, Labour & Community: Planning for Prosperity!

Top 3 reasons that you should complete the Employer One survey
In January 2017 Workforce Planning Hamilton will be asking local employers to complete our improved (and shorter) survey! 

Why should you take 15 minutes to complete the survey?

1. Your responses provide crucial labour market information that help job seekers, students and newcomers
understand the sectors where jobs are available, and what skills are in demand.

2.  Your information assists training and employment service providers to guide students and job seekers in the right direction regarding career decisions.

3.  A better educated workforce means less turnover of staff, and a cost savings for you.

Thanks for aiding Workforce Planning Hamilton to continue to be Hamilton's labour market connection between business, labour and the community.
