2019 Business Survey-business priorities for local progress

11 October 2019

Today, 10 October we launch the start of our 2019 Business Survey to gather views of a representative sample of over 1,500 businesses on a range of issues about economic performance and the future of the South East Midlands’ economy.

What’s the survey for?

The results of the survey will inform the area’s priorities for government-funded investments and interventions made to strengthen the area’s economy. The results will be used by SEMLEP and sent directly to economic development and investment teams in local councils across the South East Midlands area to help them shape local economic strategies and initiatives.

Questions asked will focus on what you think about local economic and business issues, what’s good and works well for you and, what can be improved. This survey is a chance for you to talk about how you want to grow and what you need from your Local Enterprise Partnership, Growth Hub, local councils and partners to help you achieve it.

We encourage all businesses contacted to participate in this telephone interview to ensure your business views contribute to future investment decisions made. Businesses of all different sizes and sectors will be called throughout October and November 2019. We anticipate the survey to take approximately 25 minutes.

Businesses can also contribute views via an online version of the survey, open until 8th November. To contribute, please click here: Business Survey 2019

SEMLEP has commissioned Public Perspectives Ltd, an independent market research provider, to conduct the survey. If you have any questions please call SEMLEP directly on 01234 436 100 or your local economic development team.
