The Dufferin Workforce Development Committee continues its collaborative approach to support, grow and advocate for a community of great employees and great businesses. Since late 2016 the committee has been taking steps to overcome issues of employee recruitment and retainment and has worked in unison with the area labour market plan and the newly created economic development strategies of both the Town of Orangeville and Dufferin County. Already this group has supported the Town of Orangeville’s organization of job fairs that have been attended by over 1,000 job seekers. They have also worked with the Workforce Planning Board of Waterloo Wellington Dufferin on the gathering of data through their EmployerOne Survey. This survey allows businesses to share important information about hiring challenges and specific workforce needs. The 2018 survey represented 2,223 employees in Dufferin County.
