Published: February 24, 2021

The local labour market plan is the result of Workforce Planning Hamilton’s evidence-based planning process that documents Hamilton’s current labour market conditions and creates a plan that captures key labour market issues and priorities.

 

This year, WPH had to consider the impacts of COVID-19 while doing our report. The LMP will act as the foundation for work we do  that will require the full support from all labour market stakeholders in order to succeed.

To complete this report and develop this labour market strategic plan we following a multi-step process that included:
 Comprehensive research and data analysis
 Interviews and consultations with key stakeholders including employers, service providers and community invovlement 
 Usually, we would hold a community strategy planning sessions however due to the lockdown restrictions we had to complete all consultations online through virtual platforms.

Hamilton's Job Satisfaction Survey

Published: December 7, 2020

 Over the years, WPH have heard from Hamilton employers about struggles to find qualified workers. In 2019, WPH designed the Hamilton Job Satisfaction Survey to better understand what keeps workers at their jobs.

 

Our annual EmployerOne survey reports the same information each year. It is obvious for businesses: when you find a worker that fits with your business, you want to keep them, keep them happy and keep them engaged.

Over the last couple of years, WPH has been hearing that retention is an increasing issue especially for certain roles. Our EmployerOne survey (January 2019) showed that the number of employers experiencing “quits” had increased year over year from 71% in 2018 to 79% in 2019. This is substantiated in our conversations with employers: Many workers are leaving their roles for other jobs.

 

The Hamilton Job Satisfaction Surveys asked employees from many businesses representing a range of sectors what they valued about their job and what would make them want to leave. We also included current jobseekers that were unemployed for less than a year. The Job Satisfaction Survey was open from early July to the end of September 2019. We had 380 usable responses in that time. Access the full report here.
