Today, the Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie, in partnership with Workforce Planning West, has launched the COVID-19 Worker Impact Survey to help inform the development of employment-related initiatives to respond to this crisis.
The COVID-19 crisis has already made significant impacts in Grand Erie and around the world on business, livelihoods, and jobs. Using the survey, the Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie is aiming to generate a picture of how the crisis has impacted jobs and families in our region in order to inform local-level responses.
The survey, which will be active for 2 weeks, asks about the extent to which a worker’s employment status might have changed since March 2, 2020. The survey also asks workers about their occupation and the sector they work in, which will provide insight into which groups of workers have been most affected and in what ways.
The results of this survey will be published after the survey closes so that government, business and the community has a better understanding how the COVID-19 crisis has impacted the workforce and to better inform efforts and advocacy locally

The survey is active until Thursday, April 9, 2020.
