1. 2019 EmployerOne Survey

The Algoma Workforce Investment Corporation (AWIC), your Local Workforce Planning Board, is collecting information from local employers in order to better understand the issues and challenges facing local businesses. The survey is designed to collect information on a range of workforce issues, including the following:
  • Projected vacancies
  • Hiring plans
  • Recruitment strategies and challenges
  • Your views on candidate skills, education and training
  • Future plans
Importance of Employer Input
Your input is essential to help:
  • Inform employment and training programs and services;
  • Ensure that local employment and training programs better align with the local labour market requirements; and
  • Contribute to efforts to ensure the availability of a highly skilled and trained workforce in our Northern communities.
The end result will be a labour market snapshot of what issues and challenges are affecting your business and industry. This information is vital to implementing local strategies that can support local businesses and help them thrive and succeed locally.

Completing the Survey:
  • The survey should take 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
  • Please answer all questions as accurately and completely as possible.
  • Please have a person who is familiar with issues associated with hiring and your workforce issues complete the survey.
  • Although you might receive a request to complete the EmployerOne Survey from more than one source, we ask that you complete the survey only once.
The survey has been designed to protect your identity. All answers given will be treated in strict confidence and they will be used for statistical purposes and published in aggregate form only.
A copy of the results will be made available at www.awic.ca in the summer of 2019, following the completion of the report on our area. Please provide your email address at the end of the survey if you would like to have a copy sent to you.
