Today, Jean and her husband, who is now retired after owning a chemical plant in China, have one married son and are making a new home in Canada.

The Sarnia Lambton Workforce Development Board, which has very strong connections with the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce, is reaching out to area employers with its Employer One Survey, designed to collect information on a range of issues, including recent hires made, hiring intentions, recruitment strategies and challenges.

The organization is also seeking to understand employer perspectives on candidate skills, education and training.

After analysis, the data is released to local schools, community partners, government agencies, and the public, which further enhances the overall understanding and helps provide a roadmap to future initiatives.

The survey, which is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario, can be accessed by clicking HERE.
