The Office of Economic Development and Ho‘ohana Kaua‘i are conducting an employer survey to assess the current hiring and retention needs of businesses on Kaua‘i.

To participate in the survey, visit the OED’s website and click on the “Workforce Innovative & Opportunity Act” tab and then “County Employer Survey.”

“As we move forward in life beyond the pandemic, we are trying to get a grasp on the current hiring situation here on Kaua‘i,” said Nalani Brun, OED Director. “We know that many businesses on Kaua‘i are actively seeking employees, and many who apply for openings lack the skills needed to fill those roles. The information we obtain from this survey can help us structure a response to these challenges that so many are facing.”

Based on results of the survey, OED officials will work with partnering agencies to provide basic skills classes, computer literacy courses, or personal interaction classes to those who many need the assistance.

The survey takes a few minutes to complete and will be available online until June 1. OED officials thank businesses in advance for their support and cooperation.
