EmployerOne - Business Impact Survey Launched

Published: March 24, 2021

The results are in! For the eighth year Workforce Planning Hamilton (WPH) has delivered the EmployerOne Survey. This year, EmployerOne pivoted; we partnered with City of Hamilton Economic Development to develop and distribute the Business Impact Survey. This survey included workforce development question from our usual EmployerOne survey but also focused on the impacts businesses have endured through the global pandemic.  Hamilton employers across all industries shared their hiring experience on the most in-demand jobs in Hamilton and highlighted recruitment, retention and skills concerns.  This survey provides a snapshot of how local employers were fairing in the January 2020 labour market.  This year 1,559 employers completed the EmployerOne Business Impact survey. 

Hamilton's Scenario Plan

Published: March 18, 2021

WPH has worked with 9 other local planning boards to create a regional project of localized reports that look at the effects of the pandemic locally in labour markets throughout Southwestern Ontario, while providing communities with a strategic framework to proactively plan ahead despite high uncertainty. These reports examine four probable futures of how supply and demand of the labour in Southwestern Ontario may shift in next 12-24 months. Each workforce board conducted their own scenario plan for their locality – and these individual reports will be amalgamated into a regional report. 

The regional report will be released on March 19 and we will share through our social media platforms and website. Stay tuned!
