Job Seeker & Employee Survey
Having your work valued is important
to job seekers & employees: survey finds
Our Job Seeker Survey collected insights from 500 job seekers and employees in Brantford, Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk, Six Nations and New Credit.
The survey sought to get the perspective and lived experience of Grand Erie region residents. The Workforce Planning Board has regularly surveyed business owners and employers about issues important to them, including challenges attracting and keeping staff. But the voice of workers has been missing.
The Workforce Planning Board, with help from community partners, surveyed almost 500 local residents in 2019.
The survey found that many people feel they are underemployed, with many people saying that they are unable to use their skills and experience regularly at work.
Results from unemployed residents also revealed top barriers to finding work, including lack of job postings with good pay and limited transportation. Many respondents also offered insight into why people quit work. Major reasons for quitting included unaccommodated health concerns and unpredictable work schedules.
