Surrey Board of Trade Employer Survey
Dear Surrey Employer Representative,

You are encouraged to participate in this Labour Market Survey of Surrey Employers conducted by Human Capital Strategies on behalf of the Surrey Board of Trade (SBOT) to inform the development of a Surrey Workforce Strategy. Your response to this survey will contribute greatly to this.
The Surrey Workforce Strategy will guide employee training and investment and assist Surrey employers, workers and service providers in meeting future requirements. This project is funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia. 

The objectives of this survey are to:
  1. Estimate the current and future employment in Surrey by industry and occupation
  2. Identify challenges Surrey employers face attracting, recruiting, training and retaining workers
  3. Identify occupational vacancies/shortages facing Surrey employers
  4. Identify gaps in education training and employment programming in Surrey
  5. Offer ideas for solutions for supporting Surrey employers and workers

We request that an employer representative who can accurately provide human resource information on your organization’s workforce complete the survey. All information will be maintained in strict confidence according to federal and provincial privacy legislation. Anonymity will be maintained in reporting of results. You have the option of completing part of the survey and returning to it at any time or withdrawing from the survey at any point.

Please complete the survey before or by May 24th, 2019. If you have any questions or require assistance completing this survey, please contact Kerry Jothen, Human Capital Strategies at 250.213.9231 or

Employers completing the survey by the deadline will be eligible for a random draw prize valued at $500. Please provide your name and email address at the end of this survey to enter the draw.

The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. On behalf of the Surrey Board of Trade, thank you for helping build the future Surrey Workforce Strategy.
