Employer One Survey
20 Questions in 20 Minutes to Celebrate WPH's 20th Anniversary!
You'll be happy to know that this year's EmployerOne Survey is shorter and more consise than last year's survey. We had a wonderful response from local employers last year, with 238 employers in various sectors completing the survey.
This year our goal is to have 350 completed surveys! Help us celebrate our 20th Anniversary by taking 20 minutes (or less for some employers) to complete the survey. The EmployerOne Survey will be live from January 2 - 31, 2018.
The valuable information shared by local employers and human resources professionals highlights the jobs in demand, the skill and educational requirements, and recruitment and other labour market challenges in our community.
