Manufacturing Quits Study

The Workforce Planning Board of Waterloo Wellington Dufferin is conducting a study to understand the reasons behind the high level of quits in the manufacturing sector and why businesses are having issues retaining employees. We are looking for your help with this project that is aimed at finding key strategies to support manufacturers with worker retention and attraction.

Why are employees quitting their manufacturing jobs?

In January 2017, 88% of manufacturers who completed the EmployerOne Survey indicated that they had separations – 72% of these were quits.

This research study is being conducted to understand the reasons behind the high level of quits in the manufacturing sector and why businesses are having issues retaining employees. We are looking for your help with this project that is aimed at finding key strategies to support manufacturers with worker retention and attraction.

To gain a thorough understanding of the issue, the study will also be collecting feedback from both long-term employees and recently hired employees in the industry plus Employment Ontario clients who have recently quit manufacturing jobs. The feedback will be collected through surveys and focus groups.

Your feedback is valuable to the understanding and improvement of worker retention in the Manufacturing Sector.

Please, find the link to the survey below. The estimated time to complete the survey is 7 minutes.

After the study is complete, we will be sharing the results with participants and industry stakeholders.
