Local Labour Market Plan 2018 UpdateThe Chatham-Kent Workforce Planning Board (CKWPB) works with the community to identify needs and facilitate solutions to attract, train and retain a sustainable workforce in Chatham-Kent.

The EmployerOne Survey provides a way for employers and stakeholders to receive reliable local labour market information. It is designed to get this information while respecting employer's confidentiality and limited time. Once a year, this survey allows employers a chance to communicate their workforce needs directly to stakeholders who provide solutions.

Local businesses use the information collected in the EmployerOne Survey for workforce and succession planning. Educators and employment organizations use the information for program planning and informing students and job seekers.

The report concludes with a focus on Chatham-Kent’s workforce strategic priorities. It includes an update on previously recommended actions and establishes strategic actions for the future.
