It’s time to take South Australia’s regional pulse, and Business SA is asking all business owners, operators and decision-makers to tell us what matters most – whether it be the state of the economy, taxes, access to training or the impacts of online shopping.
The Business SA 2018 Regional Voice Survey follows in the footsteps of our highly-regarded 2016 Regional Voice report, and asks regional business to tell us about their operating conditions, concerns, challenges, and what they need from government and key support organisations to ensure their success.
It has been two years since Business SA took the pulse of businesses across regional South Australia, and the time has come to again ask what matters most to owners, operators and decision makers – from the large to the self-employed – across our state.
Following Business SA’s last survey of regional businesses, we released our inaugural 2016 Regional Voice report. The report was a comprehensive summary of the issues facing distinct regions across South Australia.
The 2016 Regional Voice report highlighted many important business-related issues, and was used as the basis for Business SA’s roadshow of Regional Voice events around the state.
The Regional Voice report provided Business SA with a raft of information which we then presented to our state’s politicians, giving them a broader focus and better understanding of the matters most important to regional businesses.
Businesses shared their concerns about issues from tax rates to labour costs, infrastructure, skills shortages and the state of the economy.
Business SA is calling for an even larger and more representative response from regional decision-makers to ensure that when the results are released, they pack a powerful punch. The more people who fill out the survey, the more relevant it becomes.
Help us to help your business and your region by taking the time to fill out this survey, so we can better represent you in our dealings with industry and government stakeholders.
This survey is sponsored by EML and is being conducted in conjunction with Business SA’s network of associated regional chambers of commerce and Regional Development Australia.
