4CG opens wage and benefit surveys

Surveys focus on citizens, business owners

TIFFIN, OHIO – Dec. 17, 2019 – Economic development and workforce development organizations in Huron, Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca counties representing the partnership of the 4CG initiative have announced the openings of two surveys to gather information on wages and benefits for the region’s workforce. This is the first wage survey of Seneca County employers since at least 2005.

The wage and benefit survey is being conducted with the goal of improving local industries’ competitiveness for skilled labor. The surveys are focused on citizens/employees (https://tinyurl.com/4CGCitizenSurvey) and industry/business owners/plant managers (https://tinyurl.com/4CGOwnerSurvey). Employers should encourage their employees to fill out the survey.

4CG represents the 4 County Group 4 Collaborative Growth. The group began working together six years ago to collectively address the region’s workforce challenges. To date, the group has completed a SWOT analysis and industry specific focus groups on manufacturing, healthcare, tourism/service/travel, transportation/logistics, Davis Besse, agriculture and education

Following the survey, the plan calls for the identification and recommendation of partnerships with potential training partners. Final analysis and strategies based on the SWOT analysis, focus groups and surveys are to be provided to 4CG by May 2020 and will then be released to the public.
