Regional Development Australia – Northern Inland (RDANI) engages in activities and projects specifically aimed at boosting employment and regional economic performance in the Northern Inland region of NSW.

As we travel the region and talk with business owners, the challenges of finding and retaining skilled and reliable staff has emerged as a major impediment to business growth and profitability. It is clear that we require information on skill-shortages specific to our region.

This NSW Government-funded survey is designed to explore the problem in more detail, and help us work with businesses and agencies in the region to find real solutions.  We have already conducted some work in this area, and the findings suggest that what has been done for the past few decades may no longer be relevant to contemporary employees and business.

All information will be treated as strictly confidential and results will be aggregated so no individual business’s response can be identified.

We appreciate that you are busy, and in turn we have kept this questionnaire as short as possible while also collecting enough data to make a real difference in our region. This survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete depending on the responses you give. We appreciate your time and valuable responses.

To say thank you for your time, upon completing the survey you will be offered a chance to enter the draw for a $500 Visa gift card. Just provide us with some details at the end of the survey so we can contact you if you win!

If you have any questions, please contact us on 02 6771 0700 or rdani@rdani.org.au. You can also find out more about who we are and what we do on our website: www.rdani.org.au.

This project is supported by the NSW Government.
