Tell us about your workforce needs

THUNDER  BAY – BUSINESS – The Local Employment Planning Council (LEPC) wants to hear from you.

The EmployerOne survey is a survey of local employers designed to collect information annually on a range of workforce challenges and issues, including labour turnover, hard-to-fill positions, recruitment difficulties, and current and future skill shortages.

With a changing Labour Market including minimum wage increases and changes to labour standards, your voice needs to be heard. The Local Employment Planning Council (LEPC) has responded to the needs of local employers by developing initiatives such as Magnet, a tool to help people identify the skills they have and more easily link employers to job seekers; apprenticeship promotion, to address ongoing needs for new workers in this area and; the Employer Resource Link, a direct line for employers in Thunder Bay to more easily access all the services and supports available.

“We want more employers to have the opportunity to have their voice heard,” said Madge Richardson, Executive Director of NSWPB & LEPC. “By filling out the survey, local businesses and organizations are providing the valuable real-time information that assists in the development of planning for our communities’ workforce in response to local demand .”

Deadline for survey submissions is December 6, 2017h. To fill out a short, anonymous survey, please visit www.employeronesurvey.ca , www.emloyeronesurvey.ca/fr or contact our Project Officer by email at employeroutreach@nswpb.ca
