1. Welcome to the Survey

The Illinois Workforce Innovation Board strongly believes in workforce development solutions created jointly with business.  Illinois workforce and education agencies are researching methods for overcoming key challenges employers’ face in securing and retaining qualified talent. These approaches include establishing and maintaining dialogues and partnerships that ensure the education and workforce systems are responsive to your evolving talent needs and are providing services that improve your access to skilled workers.

We can only identify these critical strategies with your input and help. If you are interested in improving the quality of services offered to businesses and the quality of communication between business and public programs, please add your voice to the conversation by completing the attached survey on employer views on workforce development services and work-based learning programs. Your input will inform how the public sector enhances services to employers. Please only complete this survey if you are an employer or an organization that represents a group of businesses, such as an industry association, chamber of commerce, sector-based partnership etc.. Thank you for participating in our survey.
