NCWorks Commission releases the 2016 Employer Needs Survey.

The 2016 Employer Needs Survey, carried out by the Labor and Economic Analysis Division (LEAD) of the North Carolina Department of Commerce and the NCWorks Commission, is a survey of over 1,900 establishments of all sizes from across the state. The goal of the survey was to identify the needs of employers across the state, with a particular emphasis on hiring difficulties and recruitment and retention practices. In addition to an Overall sample of all industries, they surveyed four industry-specific samples: Manufacturing, Construction, Health Care & Social Assistance (Health Care), and a set of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics-related industries (STEM).

The survey is a follow up to a previous effort in 2014, which found a similar level of hiring difficulties, with roughly 4 out of 10 hiring employers experiencing difficulty filling a least one position within the previous 12 months. Manufacturing and Construction employers reported higher levels of difficulty while STEM employers reported lower levels of difficulty than the Overall average.

The report is a summary of key findings/issues noted in the survey and reflects the current status of workforce skills needs in North Carolina based on the survey data.
