Upskilling is an important part of business whether you're the employer or the employee.
To gauge the needs of local businesses, the NSW Business Chamber is asking employed people to fill out a survey which will collect and collage information about the skills needs of NSW businesses.
"The Chamber is committed to ensuring our next generation of workers develop the skills they need to meet the needs of employers or to become employers themselves," Western NSW Business Chamber Regional Manager Vicki Seccombe said.
"Quite clearly if education and training isn't equipping young people for the workplace, then it is failing in one of its primary objectives.
"Ensuring the workforce of the future has skills that will be in demand in years to come is a win for young people, the economy, our communities and businesses," she said.
The 15-minute survey invites businesses to answer questions about skill challenges, experiences engaging with the training system and the challenges and benefits of developing young people in the workplace.
"Results from this survey will help us develop recommendations for the future delivery of training in NSW and how to improve the provision of information to students, parents and employers on the pathways to rewarding careers," Ms Seccombe said.
"We encourage all businesses to complete the 2019 Workforce Skills Survey to help us continue to work with governments in addressing the workforce issues experienced by business."
The survey is found at here and will run until July 29.
"All businesses are encouraged to submit their feedback," Ms Seccombe said.
