Workforce Information and Research Links



A local area employer survey was conducted in mid-2007 to:

  • identify any additional occupations that should be added to the list of Priority Occupations;
  • identify and address workforce challenges faced by business; and
  • provide objective data on which to base decisions regarding future funding for training and other projects.


The report provided both a summary of the results of the survey and a more detailed report on the responses by industry sector.

The results for comments and occupations were consolidated. Comments were grouped under similar concerns, e.g., unwilling to work was grouped with similar responses under "lazy." Occupations were grouped under career clusters. To the left of each comment or occupation is a number indicating the number of responding businesses who noted that concern.
