Olympic College seeks employer input in survey

BREMERTON — Olympic College is conducting an Employer Satisfaction Survey to gauge its effectiveness in providing programs that are relevant to the employers in Kitsap.

The objective is to collect information regarding employer opinions and satisfaction with employees who received their education at OC. The college is particularly interested in employers’ views regarding the experience and training of OC graduates and certificate completers.

“We truly are committed to developing programs that meet real employment needs in the community,” said Amy Hatfield, dean of Workforce Development and Basic Studies. “We work with advisory committees comprised of industry leaders that provide input on the effectiveness of our programs. The Employer Satisfaction Survey is another effective tool for the college.”

The survey takes 10 minutes or less to complete and is private and confidential. The information is cumulative and individuals will not be identified in any data or reports. Even if you have not hired an employee educated at OC, your responses will help the college with future program planning. The survey is open through June 30. Go to goo.gl/H7s56E.

As a “thank you,” respondents can enter a drawing to receive one of five gift cards supporting local businesses.
