Charles County Business Survey Garnered More Than 120 Responses!

Posted by: Economic Development Team on Thursday, July 23, 2015

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the 2015 Charles County Business Survey!  We received more than 120 responses and appreciate your valuable feedback.  Based on our initial analysis, we see encouraging optimism about the County’s outlook for growth.  Two recurring themes we’ve uncovered from the preliminary findings are related to the availability of talent and internet needs, which will be priorities for the Charles County Department of Economic Development.

We want to create an open dialogue to continually improve the local business climate, so responses from the survey are greatly appreciated and important to us.  The answers are confidential and will help improve our awareness efforts and better tailor our communications to members of the Charles County community.

So, what’s next? The Department will evaluate in more depth the responses and data collected to uncover common themes, needs and areas of concern.  We have already contacted several businesses in cases where it was possible to directly address specific concerns.  We will then compile our findings into a final report, scheduled to be issued at the Charles County Economic Development Summit, scheduled for November 3, 2015.

Stay tuned for the final report!
