Employer Perspectives Survey

Thank you for considering participating in this important research.

The Employer Perspectives Survey is being conducted on behalf of the Scottish Government. The project is being conducted by IFF Research, an independent market research organisation.

The survey aims to help the Scottish Government and other organisations to help employers like you, by better understanding your needs in terms of skills, training and employment. Your co-operation will ensure that the views expressed are representative of all employers in your sector.

Participation in the survey will involve a telephone interview with an IFF interviewer lasting around 20 minutes at a time that is convenient for you and we hope very much that you are able to take part.

For further information regarding the survey, please see the Scottish Government's website:

If you have any queries concerning the format or content of the interview, please contact Naomi Morrice or Sam Stroud at IFF Research, tel: 020 7250 3035 or e-mail: If you would like to speak to somebody at the Scottish Government for more information on the aims and objectives of the survey, you can contact Peter Phillips on

Your replies will be treated in the strictest confidence under the Code of Conduct of the Market Research Society. Responses will not be linked to individual companies or respondents without their prior consent.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Naomi Morrice

Senior Research Executive
