Employer Skills Survey 2022 Wales Report

The Employer Skills Survey 2022 (ESS 2022) is the sixth in a series of UK-wide large-scale employer surveys which provide a comprehensive source of labour market information on the skills challenges faced by employers and the levels and nature of investment in training and development.

ESS 2022 took place after the COVID-19 pandemic. In this period, Wales, the UK, and the global economy more widely, has faced unprecedented economic challenges. This data is valuable in understanding the recent labour market picture for employers and in demonstrating how things have changed over time.

ESS 2022 included 4,825 employers in Wales (within the UK-wide survey which saw over 72,000 employers taking part). Survey fieldwork took place between June 2022 and March 2023
