Dear Executive,

The 7 Rivers Alliance is conducting its annual survey of area businesses — a task we have undertaken since at least 2014. It’s one of the region’s most comprehensive and local surveys. And the results of the survey are not just simply filed away. The 2015 survey which showed nearly three-quarters of businesses were having a hard time finding workers led to the 7 Rivers Alliance Workforce Development plan.

There are always challenges and opportunities in the business world, but clearly with the pandemic our challenges are many. Getting feedback from our regional businesses on the challenges they face will help the 7 Rivers Alliance and other economic development groups to focus on the biggest needs of the region.

The information collected in this survey will be analyzed and used to plan programs and services that help companies address challenges and barriers to growth. All responses are confidential, and your information will not be released to a third party. If you would like a copy of the results, there will be an opportunity to provide your email address at the end of the survey. Your email will be added to our distribution database.

Thank you again for your assistance, and providing critical information that will help The 7 Rivers Alliance better serve you in the future.

Chris Hardie, CEO, 7 Rivers Alliance
