From the background:
"Having trouble recruiting the engineers you need? Supporting this Engineering e2e research could help.
Engineering e2e is undertaking research to understand more about potential barriers to recruiting engineers.
The short online survey will be used to develop communications and tools to help both graduates and employers.
“There’s anecdotal evidence that employers –especially small- to medium-sized companies and those outside the larger cities – have difficulty finding the people they need,” says Sir Neville Jordan, Engineering e2e Steering Group Chair. “We want to test that view and understand who is applying, and which qualifications are being considered.
“One thing we are particularly interested in understanding, is why engineering businesses employ – or don’t employ – engineers with NZDE, NZDEP or BEngTech qualifications.”
There is a link to the 10 minute survey from the e2e home page: www.engineeringe2e.org.nz or connect directly at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Q6YQ53V
Employers who complete the survey can ago into a draw for a $500 voucher, but Sir Neville said he expected the main motivation would be to would be to help the industry.
“The more you help us to understand, the more we can do to ensure we have the right people with right qualifications.”
