What is involved in being a Rapid Results panelist?

Panelists will be surveyed 6 times, at 2 to 3-month intervals, starting May 2023 until March 2024.
  • Panelists should be a senior member of their company, such as an owner or hold a management position and have a strong knowledge of HR and industry issues including recruitment, hiring, training and operations.
  • Panelists are asked to complete all six surveys.

Invitations to respond to surveys will be sent by email. Surveys can be completed using any Internet-connected device (e.g., phone).

All data will be anonymized prior to analysis, meaning responses will be “disconnected” from respondents.
  • Results will be reported in aggregate and neither respondent names nor the names of companies will be shared outside of Food Processing Skills Canada.

Panel members will receive early access to results of the surveys they respond to which will include a summary report and invitation to a webinar briefing.

What topics will the surveys address?

Each survey will include two sets of questions:

Core Questions:

“Core” questions repeated across all surveys that will allow us to track changes in key areas, such as:

Spotlight Questions:
