What is it? EmployerOne is a comprehensive, community-wide annual survey – done every January – about the workforce and human resource needs of local employers.

What is the survey’s purpose? To gather reliable information on the workforce needs of employers and identify trends in the local labour market.

Don’t you already survey us enough? Employers have told us they’re tired of different organizations asking them the same questions in multiple surveys. EmployerOne takes place once a year, reducing “survey overload.”

Who is doing it? EmployerOne is a collaborative survey, led by the Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie, with support from two dozen partners (see list), who will share the results. Partners come from Economic, Workforce, Business and Education development groups in Brantford, Brant, Haldimand & Norfolk.
