       -- SURVEYS --

  From Central Minnesota Jobs and Training Services, Inc. (CMJTS). 

  The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis is charged with understanding labor market conditions across Minnesota, including hiring demand, labor         availability, and wages. To do so, we are reaching out to human resource and other business professionals to better gauge conditions in real time, and at a more local, granular level.


  To offer us your insights, please take 5 minutes to respond to this survey on labor markets conditions:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CentralMNsurveyQ12019

All responses are anonymous, and unlike most surveys, there is also a value proposition for you and other respondents. Once the survey is closed, summary results will be shared with Central Minnesota Jobs and Training Services (our regional partner who alerted you to this survey), who will then share results with contacts like yourself. So you get the same labor market intelligence as the Minneapolis Fed.

Thank you for your time and insights. The Minneapolis Fed greatly appreciates both.

 Please take the survey if you are so inclined but also understand that it is completely voluntary.
