As a method of continuing to gain input from local businesses, Miami County has contracted with Ady Advantage to conduct a Pulse Survey of businesses to gather information on the economic climate and challenges facing business owners.
The first round of this survey was completed in June. A complete copy of the report is available here. In the report, most businesses indicated that their operations were fully underway. Employers also noted concern about their ability to keep employees healthy and requested assistance in that area.
While some of the survey questions will remain the same, many of survey questions will be updated to gather new insights from businesses. The next survey will be released the week of July 27 with follow up surveys the weeks of Sept. 14 and Nov. 16.
Each survey should take no more than five minutes to complete.When responding to the survey, individuals have the opportunity to keep their business confidential. The generalized data will be provided to county and city leaders. If business owners want to identify themselves and request information about local incentive programs, that option also exists.
Results will be available about three weeks later. They will be posted here and will also be shared with the local chambers of commerce, each city and county officials. All Miami County businesses are encouraged to participate in the survey. You can do that by following the link below.
