Workforce Board Employer Survey

The Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board is seeking a contractor to administer two separate but related surveys:

- One survey to obtain needs and practices information from a large sample of employers, and

- A second survey to assess employer satisfaction with workforce program trainees hired within the past year.

The needs and practices information is to be collected from a general sample of employers and the employer satisfaction information is to be collected from employers who have recently hired participants from the following programs:

  • High school career and technical education programs
  • Community and technical college vocational programs
  • Four-year colleges and universities programs
  • Adult Basic Education programs
  • Private career schools programs
  • Apprenticeship programs
  • Workforce Investment Act (WIA) federally funded programs.
  • WorkSource Employment Placement programs

The Workforce Board analyzes data from these surveys using files supplied by the contractor

Results of the previous survey can be found in documents a: http://www.wtb.wa.gov/EmployerSurvey.asp

Results of the earlier surveys can be found at: http://www.wtb.wa.gov/Pubs_PublicationsArchives.asp

The survey results appear in the “Workforce Training Results” documents, the “High Skills, High Wages” documents, as well as in the 2004 archived report on the Employer Survey.
