The survey, which is based on over 90,000 telephone interviews with UK employers, is one of the largest employer surveys in the world. The survey is vital to the work of UKCES and our partners both within national and local government. The survey gathers information on the skills challenges that employers face within their existing workforces and in terms of bringing in new skilled labour, the levels and nature of training investment and the relationship between skills challenges, training activity and business strategy.
The success of the survey is dependent on the willingness of employers to take part. If selected, employers can choose a time that suits them to be interviewed. If you are a participant you can find more information here.
