2017-2018 Job Projection Survey

At the end of 2016, we circulated a detailed job projection survey to our 75 top employers in our healthcare, manufacturing, professional technical services, agribusiness and logistics industries.

As of January 2017, 41 employers have completed the survey, projecting a total of roughly 9,200 jobs that will become available over the next 24 months. About 60% are replacement positions, and 40% are new positions.

Once finished, the findings of our survey will help us focus our workforce development programs and gain a better understanding of the sectors in which our economy will be expanding.  This will help us grow and retain our own talent in the region, but also inform our recruiting efforts to attract talented professionals to put down roots in Greater Peoria.

Check out the list of employers who have responded so far!  We look forward to sharing a full report with the community at the end of our survey.
