The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic brought many challenges to Southwest Florida’s employers. Yet even during the pandemic, the region’s employers identified finding qualified employees as the biggest challenge to their workforce/talent needs. This 2021 Workforce Employer Survey attempts to better understand the recruiting, hiring, and training approaches and challenges your organization must overcome to find qualified employees as we begin to put the pandemic behind us. The data gathered in the Survey will be reported in an aggregate (unidentifiable) format and the specific information about your organization will not be published.

Note:  the Survey uses the term “organization” in the broadest sense, for example not-for-profit groups, for-profit businesses (from small businesses to larger corporations), educational institutions, health systems, etc. – any organization that seeks to hire qualified employees.
