On March 21, 2018 Workforce Planning Hamilton in partnership with Mohawk College Enterprise and the Hamilton Council on Aging hosted a focus group with employment service providers to explore ways that Employment Ontario employment service agencies can meet the needs of marginalized or multi-barried mature workers. This work was part of the Age Friendly Hamilton Initiative. 

After the focus group WPH agreed to reconvene those in the group that wanted to continue working on the issue to explore possibilities and develop an action plan.

A meeting took place on July 18/18 with representatives from the EO employment services community. Next steps from the meeting included the suggestion to hold a Professional Development event. 

The purpose of this three minute survey is to gauge if there is need and interest among the EO employment service community to hold the event and the form that it would take. 

For the purposes of this survey we are defining mature workers as people who are over 50 years of age. 

The deadline to complete the survey is September 13/18.

Question Title

* 1. In your daily work as an employment service provider is aiding mature workers a priority?
