What is the study about?
The Department is committed to ensuring that it understands employers’ needs. To do this, the Department regularly conducts research with employers, job seekers and other stakeholders in an effort to better understand their experiences.
In this Job Seeker Suitability Study (JSSS), employers will be asked some details about their workplace, what they look for when recruiting new staff and will be asked to respond to a number of hypothetical recruitment scenarios.
Why should employers participate in the survey?
The findings from JSSS will help the Department to understand the factors employers consider when recruiting for new staff, and in what ways we can ensure that more job applicants meet the needs of businesses in the future.
How long will the survey take to complete?
The study involves a survey which will take approximately fifteen (15) minutes to complete.
Gfk has sent an invitation email to those employers selected to participate. Employers will be required to follow the link in the email to complete the survey online
Is the survey compulsory?
While we appreciate each and every response, we understand that it can be difficult to find the time. The survey is entirely voluntary, and if employers don’t wish to participate they can let GfK know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
