Welcome and thanks for your input!

This survey is designed to capture the views and values of employers doing business in Southwest Florida. The Southwest Florida Community Foundation administers this survey on behalf of the FutureMakers Coalition. FutureMakers is a regional initiative with the goal of transforming the workforce by increasing the number of degrees, certificates, and high-quality credentials to 55%.

In order to grow a regionally strong workforce in our communities, we need to further understand the needs and perspectives of employers.

The survey is divided into the following sections: 
1. Your Company’s Future Workforce – Responses to these questions should be made by envisioning your employees of the future including the skills they will need for increasing success in your business
2. Most Desired Workforce Skills – Skills valued and required by employers
3. Current State of Your Workforce – Responses reflecting current realities in your workforce.

Most questions provide several choices to move through quickly by clicking your selection. A few questions request your thoughts on how you might address a particular workforce challenge or opportunity.  We appreciate your thoughtful attention and responses. This survey should take about 15-20 minutes to complete. 

Aggregated results of the survey will be available after analysis on the FutureMakers website and as part of the annual outcomes reporting for the coalition. Data collected will be used by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation and the FutureMakers Coalition to guide regional collective impact around post-secondary attainment and workforce development. Individual responses will be completely anonymous. Your input is valuable to our region.
