Recovery Team creates survey for Kingston-area workers to assess COVID-19 impact
The Kingston Economic Recovery Team is asking Kingston and area residents to complete a survey to help identify community-based solutions to support Kingston-area employees affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Worker Impact Survey is being administered by the City of Kingston, on behalf of community stakeholders participating in the Kingston Economic Recovery Team.
“This survey is an important step in gaining different perspectives on employee safety throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Craig Desjardins, Director of Strategy, Innovation and Partnerships for the City. “We want to see what else can be done to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 in Kingston’s workforce, and the findings in this survey will go a long way to help identify programs and solutions to provide employee support.”
The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, and is intended for employees working in the Kingston area. It asks a range of demographic questions, as well as questions about individual work experience and how employees may have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Residents who complete the survey can enter a draw for a chance to win one of five $25 gift cards to a local Kingston business.
The survey is available online. Responses will be anonymous and the survey will remain open until Thursday Aug. 13, 2020.
