West Coast business survey 2023

01 August 2023
The input of West Coast businesses is sought in a comprehensive business survey aimed at understanding the current business climate, challenges, and opportunities.

Opportunity for West Coast businesses to have their say

The survey is a joint initiative between several West Coast organisations who provide business support services and help address the workforce needs of the region: Development West Coast, Te Tai o Poutini West Coast Regional Skills Leadership Group, Tai Poutini Polytechnic | Te Pūkenga, Mayors Taskforce for Jobs (Buller, Grey, and Westland), and Upskill West Coast.

The survey is designed to gain a deeper insight into critical areas including recruitment challenges, workforce expectations, future training needs, and the overall business sentiment within the West Coast. This approach also ensures a more holistic understanding of the West Coast business environment, enabling the organisations to work together more efficiently to meet the region’s unique needs.

The insights derived from the survey will assist in developing actions to support businesses, improve workforce development, and ultimately contribute to the overall success of the West Coast region.

The survey is estimated to take less than ten minutes to complete and remains open until 31 August. Participating businesses are assured that their responses will be kept strictly confidential.
