Local businesses are being urged to speak up about what community supports they need on the road to recovery from COVID-19.
The Grand Erie COVID-19 Recovery: Business Insights Survey targets businesses in Brantford, Six Nations, New Credit, and the counties of Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk.
The survey, running July 6 to July 31, can be found online: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GEMedia
The Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie is spearheading the survey on behalf of the Grand Erie Recovery Task Force, a group of community and business leaders.
“Over the past few months, our regional task force has narrowed in on the biggest issues that our businesses are facing at this time. This survey is designed to understand that impact and obtain employers’ insights into how we can best support them,” said Executive Director Danette Dalton.
“Our goal is to use the survey results to develop strategic responses to the most pressing labour challenges.”
The survey covers four key themes: changes in consumer demand/preferences, workplace safety, skills in-demand and remote working.
The goal is to hear from at least 350 businesses of all sectors and sizes. Results will be analyzed and the findings shared publicly in August.
