Governor’s survey for businesses is worth the timeDec 18th, 2011 | By Jerrod Shouse | Category: Top News
If you are a business owner or executive in Oklahoma, go take the survey found at FallinForBusiness.com. It’ll be well worth your time.
Created by Governor Mary Fallin, the survey asks Oklahoma business owners and executives to provide data and their opinions that will be used to shape the state’s economic development policy and identify the issues that are important to creating jobs and strengthening our business climate.
According to Dave Lopez, Oklahoma secretary of commerce and tourism, the project has several objectives, including understanding the specific needs of businesses, identifying ways to help them, and to benchmark economic development strategies and business-friendly policies.
I recently took the survey, and it was time well spent. It’s very thorough, and it focuses on Oklahoma’s business climate, challenges, and issues. It asks a wide variety of questions, ranging from infrastructure, quality of the business climate, quality of our schools and colleges, business incentives, workforce availability and challenges, and your suppliers, customers, and markets.
It took me about 15 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey I was able to provide additional comments on what I think would strengthen Oklahoma’s business climate.
The goal is for as many Oklahoma businesses as possible to participate. Over 2,900 surveys have been completed so far. To take the survey, simply go to the FallinForBusiness.com website and click Take the online survey.
