Job Creation Surveys

The most immediate and valuable outcome of Building Markets' products and services are the jobs that are created. When local businesses win contracts they either recruit new employees to undertake the work or they are in a position to maintain employees from previous contracts.

Understanding the extent of job creation‚ such as how many jobs and what type of jobs‚ is crucial to understanding both the broader impact of the work of Building Markets as well as how that impact can be increased in the future.

In each of the countries where Building Markets is operational, local teams conduct face-to-face interviews with registered businesses that have won contracts after accessing products and services. In addition to questions about jobs created, entrepreneurs are surveyed about how contracts have enhanced the skills of their employees, investments in equipment, and ability to win future contracts. Improvements like these are essential for sustaining job creation and broader market development into the future.
