Employer One

What is Employer One?

Employer One is an annual online survey focused on the demand side of the local labour market. Employers throughout Niagara complete the survey in order to compile data on workforce issues ranging from labour availability, to job availability and classification, to skills demand, and more.

Benefits of Employer One

The results of the annual Employer One survey create a snapshot of the labour market from the perspective of employers. This is an excellent opportunity for businesses of all sizes. Recruitment activities are enhanced by the survey’s ability to help identify labour shortages and skills gaps, and to enable job seekers, employment service providers, and educational institutions to target their skills training to industries in need. The more respondents Employer One receives, the more accurate and complete the survey data for the region becomes.
