What is the Florida green jobs survey?
The Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation, Labor Market Statistics Center, is conducting a green jobs survey to determine the number and types of green jobs currently in Florida. The agency will survey approximately 60,000 employers across all industries and areas of the state.
When will the survey be conducted?
The survey will start on May 21, 2010 and will continue until November 5, 2010 according to the schedule located here. The survey will proceed in two phases: a mail phase (which will last for several weeks) and a phone follow-up phase (to reach nonrespondents from the mail phase). A contract vendor, Brandt Information Services, Inc., will be conducting the phone follow-up phase using Computer Assisted Telephone Inquiry (CATI). The phone follow-up phase may last several weeks per area depending on the responsiveness of the local employers.
Why is this survey important?
Promoting green industries through training, will strengthen our economy, create jobs, decrease our dependence on foreign oil, and preserve our state’s natural resources.
What is a green job?
A green job is one that directly produces green products or services in any of the following areas:
A. Produce renewable energy
B. Increase energy efficiency
C. Conserve natural resources
D. Prevent, reduce, and clean up pollution
E. Produce clean transportation and fuels
What if my business doesn’t have any green jobs?
We would still like to hear from you so we can determine the distribution of green jobs in our state’s economy. If your business doesn’t have any green jobs, simply complete the first page of the questionnaire and return it in the enclosed postage-paid envelope.
Will my information be kept confidential?
