Take the Business Retention & Expansion Survey TODAY!
What is it? On April 7, 2014, Anchorage Economic Development Corporation is launching an extensive survey of the Anchorage business community called the Business Retention & Expansion Survey. The Business Retention & Expansion (BRE) Survey will gather detailed data on the greatest opportunities and challenges for growth facing Anchorage businesses. The survey covers a broad range of topics, from workforce and hiring needs, to infrastructure and facilities issues. AEDC will design and execute strategies to address issues identified in the survey, with the end goal of making Anchorage a better place to do business.
Why should you participate? This survey gives Anchorage businesses an opportunity to be heard and influence the direction of economic development in Anchorage. Tell AEDC what challenges and opportunities your business is facing so we can better design strategies to address barriers to business growth. Survey responses will be kept in the strictest confidence by AEDC.
Who should participate? Business owners and executives. We will be accepting one response per business.
How to participate? CLICK HERE! The BRE survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. THANK YOU for you participation!!
