HOW WE CAN HELP
In partnership with Stirling’s Employer Engagement Group, we rolled out a survey which will help to shape the support we provide in the following areas: skills, recruitment, health, workplace learning, specialist advice, and funding. 130 businesses owners and operators completed the survey throughout the Forth Valley.
Join STEP and the EEG at the 2018 Employers Forum. This event will be centred around tackling workforce challenges together and provide a space for employers to communicate what they need to support them and their people.
There are many existing support organisations offering varying services to support businesses, employees and people entering work.
35% of business found the organisation’s service level to be excellent with only 9% finding the service is poor. The majority of businesses – 40%, rated the service levels of these organisations as good so there is room for improvement across these services.
When asked “Would you be confident in employing someone with a disability, learning problems or long-term health condition?”
