Employees and employers invited to take part in Columbus 2020's Columbus Region Workforce Assessment

The Columbus region's economic development organization Columbus 2020 has put out a call for research participants for a Columbus Region Workforce Assessment.

The study aims to deliver insight into workforce trends, developments and a "real-time understanding of our workforce" to employers, workforce service providers and economic developers, said 2020 CEO Kenny McDonald in this morning's announcement.

Dallas-based location advisory firm Site Selection Group, city and county economic development organizations and Columbus 2020 will be conducting employer interviews and individual employee web surveys throughout Franklin, Delaware, Fairfield, Knox, Licking, Logan, Madison, Marion, Morrow, Pickaway and Union counties.

Employers in these counties should contact Columbus 2020 at 614-225-6063 if they'd like to take part in interviews. Columbus region residents and employees aged 18 and older are invited to take the online survey now through September 30.

Results will be released in late December of 2013.
