Employer Survey

Missouri Workforce 2021 Employer Survey Report

A state’s employers and workforce are economic drivers of its success. Missouri has over 200,000 payroll employers who provide jobs for 2.6 million people. Understanding workforce trends and future plans of employers can help inform how to address future staffing, training, and support needs.

For the third consecutive year, Missouri conducted a survey of a representative sample of Missouri’s employers asking questions about the workforce. This 2021 survey looked at both metro and non-metro employers to understand key similarities or differences that may help inform workforce or economic development decisions.
