MUSKOKA - Area employers are getting a helping hand in determining their needs.
Simcoe County and Muskoka region employers of all sizes and types are being asked to participate in a labour market study, co-ordinated by the Employment Service Providers of Simcoe County and the District of Muskoka.
“There is a constant tension between the needs of employers for workers and the success of workers who are seeking employment. This project will provide important new local data to understand the disconnect between the supply and demand side of the local labour markets,” said Kathy Low, project co-ordinator with Northern Lights Canada, one of the agencies participating in the study. “Armed with this information employment service providers will be well-equipped to support employers and job seekers, benefiting all of our communities.”
Employers are being asked to complete a survey that will enable the employment service providers to peek behind the curtain and have a better look at the real versus perceived labour market in Simcoe and Muskoka.
Gathering information that gives a clear snapshot of these districts and communities will allow service providers to deliver employment market services that improve connections to the demand side of the labour market.
The survey is hosted via Survey Monkey and will be available until the April 27.
Community partners, chambers of commerce and community development centres in several areas have also added the link to their sites. A final report of the study will be available to all employers who participate.
