Your Workforce News
January 2024 Edition
Workforce Development Boards across Eastern Ontario are calling on employers like you to help us better understand the workforce issues and challenges facing your business today.
The EmployerOne Survey is designed to collect information on a range of issues including the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your workforce, projected vacancies, hiring intentions, recruitment strategies and challenges, as well as your perspective on job candidate skills, education and training.
Businesses completing the survey will be eligible for a chance to win weekly draws of a $25 gift card for Canadian Tire (January 5, 12, 19 & 26) and a grand prize draw for a $50 Tim Hortons gift card (February 5th). Winners will be selected using a random number generator. The sooner the survey is completed, the greater your chance of winning!

All survey responses are held in the strictest confidence. All answers given will be used for statistical purposes and published in aggregate form only. This EmployerOne Survey closes at 11:59 PM on February 2, 2024.
