Labour Market Survey Results
The Revelstoke Labour Market Survey addresses four issues:
1. to gain an accurate profile of the labour market based on a representative sample of the businesses in operation.
2. to discern the current and projected labour market needs. Which positions, if any were Revelstoke’ business owners having difficulty filling?
3. to learn what retention and attraction strategies businesses were currently using to attract employees and how they could be improved.
4. to examine the educational profile of our community to establish the current and future training needs of our workforce.
This study is an initial step in securing a healthy business environment and workforce for Revelstoke by providing some local labour market data.
The data collected complements regional and provincial statistics provided by different governing agencies so that community leaders and business owners can act proactively and make good informed labour force and training decisions.
