Chambers call on South Yorkshire businesses to complete region’s most influential economic survey

23rd August 2021

South Yorkshire’s most influential barometer of business conditions, the Quarterly Economic Survey, went live today.

Run by the region’s three accredited Chambers of Commerce, they are calling on all business leaders across the Sheffield City Region to take the questionnaire, which takes take less than five minutes to complete.

In this quarter the survey tests opinion on the forthcoming Sheffield City Region Employer’s Charter and business experience of cyber crime. It asks businesses about their recent performance and thoughts on the future. And ahead of the international climate summit in Glasgow this Autumn, it asks for business input on government policies on this too.

The results are briefed into senior decision-makers across national and regional government, including the Mayor’s office.

You can complete the survey here, which closes in mid-September.

Calling on businesses to complete the survey, the CEOs of Doncaster, Sheffield and Barnsley & Rotherham Chambers said:

"Your responses help us track the local economy and campaign for your priorities. Decision-makers in local, regional and national governments depend on the results.  If you haven’t done so already, we hope you’ll join the hundreds of civic-minded businesses who make the South Yorkshire Quarterly Economic Survey. From this quarter you can also submit your own questions to us through the survey – and we are committed to answering these in public."
