2024 Business Workforce Survey
For the last three years, The Business Council has teamed up with the New York State Department of Labor and Empire State Development to survey thousands of businesses on their challenges and needs. We are now also partnering with the New York Association of Training and Employment Professionals.
The state has then worked to address these through new and revised processes, programs and initiatives. The survey results continue to shape workforce development practices and policy from the P-12 system to higher education and among training providers across New York State.
This year, we are again partnering to gather real-time feedback on the state of the workforce and the needs of businesses in 2024! This survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
