2017 NGSC Business Services Feedback Survey
Published on 01 May 2017
Businesses urged to have their say
Northern Grampians Shire business owners have a unique opportunity to have their say on exactly what services they need to help their enterprises flourish.
Business owners are being encouraged to have their say on the types of training and skills development activities they need to support and improve their businesses.
Northern Grampians Shire Council is conducting a survey to better understand the issues facing businesses in the municipality and to determine how it can provide support which will, in turn, build a stronger economic outlook for the Grampians region.
Northern Grampians Shire CEO Michael Bailey and Kookaburra Motor Lodge owner Stephen Odgers have both urged businesses to complete the survey.
“This survey is a vital input into the evaluation of our services to businesses,” Mr Bailey said. “We want feedback on the services we are already providing and on what is missing so that we can better target future programs.”
Mr Odgers said it was important for businesses to provide input on what services they needed.
“The council is taking a proactive approach to better understand our needs so it's important that all businesses complete the survey and have their say about the types of training, development and regional marketing support they need."
The survey is open until Friday, May 19 and can be completed either online or via hard copy. To access the survey online go to www.surveymonkey.com/r/NGSC2017. To obtain a hard copy, call Customer Service on 5358 8700.
Participants who complete the survey will go into a draw to win one of two great prizes – either an advertising package with The Weekly Advertiser/MIXXFM/3WM or one of two tailored business coaching packages with Sarah Valentine.
“We cannot stress strongly enough the importance of completing this survey,” CEO Michael Bailey said. “The results will underpin all our future training and skills development programs and activities so they more accurately reflect business needs.
“By working together, we can build successful businesses which will in turn generate success across other sectors within the municipality."
