Call out for businesses to participate in survey

David Lee March 10, 2016

LOCAL businesses are being called on to participate in a recently launched business survey, which aims to ascertain the individual and collective needs of business to better meet the needs of the local business community.

The survey hopes to establish an up-to-date profile of the local economy by identifying strengths and potential growth areas for local businesses, assisting local business with solving problems and exploring new opportunities and creating employment opportunities in the region.

Greater Shepparton City Council CEO, Peter Harriott is encouraging businesses to take the time to fill out the survey.

“Your assistance in completing this survey will ensure that the information we receive reflects the business community as a whole.

“We are really keen to capture a profile of our existing business community including the issues they are facing, how they recruit new employees, whether they are involved in international trade and where they see themselves in the future.

“We are also asking businesses to rate Greater Shepparton as a place to own a business in a number of categories. This will give us a clear indication of the best things about our region and those that need improvement.”
