Employment Needs Survey

Georgia Piedmont Technical College (GPTC), in partnership with the Metro CID and community partners, designed this five-minute online survey to identify current and future needs of DeKalb County employers. The information will remain strictly confidential and all results will be presented in aggregate. Your response is important document and will help us to identify the most critical training needs of businesses, as well the barriers which prevent employers from meeting those needs. We will then be able to design and offer relevant, responsive, and cost-effective training that overcomes the identified barriers. Please be assured that the names of companies/individuals responding to this survey will remain confidential.
