Partnership Releases Business and Workforce Status Survey

October 14, 2020

GREATER DES MOINES, IA (Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2020) — The Greater Des Moines Partnership has published a Business and Workforce Status Survey for its Investors, Affiliates, Members and the Greater Des Moines (DSM) community to gain insights on current and future business and workforce plans. Data gathered from the survey will help businesses and organizations better understand how their peers are handling the COVID-19 pandemic and help The Partnership identify how it can best assist organizations and the community.

Questions on the survey focus on the current status and future plans of organizations as they continue to adapt to organizational operational changes and business travel in response to the pandemic. The survey also asks organizations to gauge the estimated financial impacts of COVID-19 in 2021 and describe their confidence in the DSM economy.

This survey follows up on The Partnership's COVID-19 Business Impact Survey completed in March at the outset of the pandemic, which garnered more than 600 responses and valuable insight.

“Our community continues to strategically pivot in response to the ongoing challenges of COVID-19,” said Jay Byers, CEO of the Greater Des Moines Partnership. “As businesses and organizations prepare for 2021, the results from this survey will help provide valuable insights and guidance as we continue to move the DSM region forward together in a safe, smart and collaborative way.”
