WATCH THIS SPACE TO TAKE THE SURVEY STARTING MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2020
We want to hear the views of local employers, employees and job-seekers, and invite you to participate in our surveys. On September 21 we are launching two surveys: one for local Job Seekers and Employees, and another for local Employers. We want to learn about their experiences and insights around local labour force strengths and challenges; strengths, gaps and opportunities for workforce skills and training, and more.
The Job Seeker & Employee Survey is gathering critical information, including factors making it difficult to find work; reasons for leaving or staying in a job; and factors that help gain and maintain meaningful employment. The Employer Survey seeks to better understand local labour force strengths and gaps, and also identify gaps and opportunities in skills, training, and workforce services.
Who can participate? The surveys are open to all businesses, employees and job seekers in the City and County of Grande Prairie, MD of Greenview, Hythe, Beaverlodge, Sexsmith, Wembley, Fox Creek, Valleyview, Horse Lake First Nation, Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation and Grande Cache Co-ops and Enterprises.
Job seekers and employees include people currently working, and those who are unemployed, consider themselves underemployed, or looking for their first job.
When does the survey close? The survey closes October 31.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST AND PARTICIPATION!
