What We Do
The UK Commission’s Employer Skills Survey 2011 is the key UK data source on employer demand for and investment in skills. This report focuses on the 2011 results from Northern Ireland’s employers on their skills challenges, recruitment and training activities and looks back at the earlier Northern Ireland Skills Monitoring Surveys (NISMS) allowing time-series comparisons from 2005 and 2008. The survey results form a rich source of information about the extent and nature of employer demand for skills; employer involvement in skills development activities and their approaches to workforce development; the experiences of skill deficiencies across different groups of employers. Results are presented by size, sector, occupation, and geography.
