GREDF Partners with City of Quincy and Adams County for 2nd Annual Business Survey

Quincy and Adams County, Illinois… The Great River Economic Development Foundation, in partnership with the City of Quincy and Adams County is asking area businesses to participate in the 2nd Annual Business Survey. The survey was originally developed in 2013 to gauge the current business environment in the region.

A link to the survey, which is also available online at www.gredf.org and through the City’s website at http://www.ci.quincy.il.us/ and County’s website at http://www.co.adams.il.us/, has been emailed to businesses and organizations in the area. Paper copies are available at the GREDF Office in the Oakley Lindsay Center, 300 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 256.

The survey is only 15 questions and has been designed so an individual can fill it out in 5 minutes or less. Questions include: “What are the community’s strengths and weaknesses as a place to do business?”, and “Are there things missing in our region that you need to help your business grow?”. A number of questions relate to workforce issues. The survey is anonymous and data will only be shared in an aggregate form.

“This survey is a proactive effort to identify and better understand area businesses and both the opportunities and challenges these businesses face,” says GREDF president, Marcel Wagner. “Our organization looks forward to continuing to partner with City and County officials to address the issues raised in the survey in meaningful and measurable ways.”

“I’m pleased to be partnering once again with GREDF and the County to get the feedback we need to help further the economic vitality of our region,” says Mayor Kyle Moore.

“We hope that all of our area businesses, both large and small, will participate in this second annual survey,” says Adams County Board Chairman, Let Post. “Business retention and recruitment are key to the economic future of Adams County and the results of this survey will help outline the needs of the business community and give us good guidance to help make improvements.”

Aggregate results of the 2nd Quincy and Adams County Business Survey annual survey will be shared in the coming months.
