Earlier this year, Devon County Council commissioned our Workforce Skills Survey, which interviewed the managers of just under 400 local businesses about the skills of their workforce, as well as any skills and training related challenges facing their businesses.
The results of the survey indicated that 89% of businesses in Devon felt that all their staff had the necessary skills to be fully proficient at their jobs and 90% of business said they have had no issues retaining their staff.
A major attraction for businesses looking to move here, is our skilled and loyal workforce, so this survey provides strong proof that this is the case.
