Scottish Employer Skills Survey 2020

Thank you for considering participating in this important research.

The Scottish Employer Skills Survey 2020 is being conducted on behalf of Scottish Government and Skills Development Scotland. The project is being conducted by IFF Research, an independent market research organisation.

The aim of this project is to help the Government and other institutions meet the skills, employment and business support needs of organisations like yours. Your co-operation will ensure that the views expressed are representative of all employers in your sector.

Your organisation has been selected at random from Market Location's Business Database (which combines 118 and Thomson data) and we hope very much that you are able to take part. Participation will involve a telephone interview with an IFF interviewer lasting around 25 minutes at a time that is convenient for you.

More information about the survey (including FAQs) can be found at Furthermore, you can confirm the authenticity of the survey at

For results from the previous 2017 UK-wide survey please see the Gov.UK website:

If you have any queries concerning the format or content of the interview, please contact us at

Your replies will be treated in the strictest confidence under the Code of Conduct of the Market Research Society and in accordance with the Data Protection Act (2018) and General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). You can view Scottish Government's personal information charter here. Responses will not be linked to individual companies or respondents without their prior consent.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours sincerely,

IFF Research
