The City of Brantford Economic Development & Tourism Department invites all our businesses to participate in this year’s confidential workforce survey - EmployerOne. This is the third year of the survey being completed for the surrounding Grand Erie region.
Link to EmployerOne
EmployerOne collects first-hand, local information on the workforce needs of local employers – on the need for particular skilled trades, for example - and identifies trends in the local labour market.
Once completed online, you can download and print your survey, which provides you a yearly snapshot of your workforce and helps identify HR issues that need attention.
The information you have provided in the past 2 surveys has led to tangible community actions, including:
- Creating the Manufacturing Leadership Council and holding Manufacturing Day
- Initiatives to improve the soft skills of job seekers
- Planning for new courses aligned with the needs of employers (Conestoga College is one example)
Your answers are kept in confidence. Information is released on overall findings as well as sector specific reports on several key sectors of the local economy – including manufacturing.
