2021 Employer Survey

The employer survey was designed to provide significant information on employers in Durham Region. It will fill significant gaps in labour market information and allow stakeholders to better understand the skills and needs of the businesses in the Durham Region.  The surveys probe employer respondents on topics such as attraction and retention of employees, skill sets required, industry outlook, and the business climate in the Durham Region.  The Employer Survey has been designed in alignment with other surveys at the Durham Workforce Authority to allow for the potential for cross survey analysis.

The final report for the 2021 employer survey is now available.  This iteration of the Employer Survey remains on schedule with past versions being offered every two years, and the last iteration occurring in 2019.  For the 2021 Employer Survey, the Durham Workforce Authority brought on the Social Research Centre at Ontario Tech University to program and host the survey using their Qualtrics platform and to complete the analysis phases of the project.
