A new EmployerOne Survey results report released by the Workforce Development Board/Local Employment Planning Council (WDB/LEPC) illustrates the challenges employers faced in our region at the time the survey was conducted in February.
Though a new initiative this year for the WDB/LEPC, we intend to collect this data annually and run the survey for a longer duration to enable a greater response rate.
Workforce Development Board is a not-for-profit organization that is leading the Local Employment Planning Council pilot project for Northumberland, Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes & Haliburton. Founded in 1996, WDB is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development (MLTSD) to provide labour market information, coordinate employment and training services, and engage employer communities. The LEPC initiative provides expanded resources for co-ordinating integrated planning and initiatives, as well as helping employers, workers and job seekers to make informed training and career decisions.
