AlabamaWorks! to identify COVID-19 impact with business survey

AlabamaWorks! is conducting the Alabama COVID-19 Workforce Response Survey to help the state fully understand the impact of the pandemic on the state’s workforce and provide a clear path forward for businesses, industry and state government.

Businesses large and small are asked to participate.

“I am grateful to the Alabama Workforce Council for developing and deploying this much needed and user-friendly survey,” said Governor Kay Ivey. “As we work together to combat COVID-19’s impact, this tool will allow us to identify the needs of business and industry, resources that can help them and how we can best support Alabama’s businesses owners and hardworking Alabamians and their families.”

The official survey, which is critical for helping individual industry sectors recover from COVID-19, is available here: http://sm.aidt.edu/alabamaworks-survey.

“While these are challenging times, we fully understand that now, more than ever, business and industry leaders must continue to work together with Governor Ivey’s administration and various state agencies to move us all forward together,” Alabama Workforce Council Chairman Tim McCartney said. “Rest assured there is an unwavering commitment to do everything we can to minimize the negative impact COVID-19 has on our businesses, our economy, the state and all of its citizens. Using the results from this survey, I know we can all make a difference in combating the challenges from this pandemic facing so many throughout Alabama.”

Responses to the survey will be accepted through Tuesday, April 21 at 5 p.m. All businesses are highly encouraged to participate as the responses will help to protect Alabama’s workforce, manage the impact of COVID-19 and guide allocation of various resources.

The governor’s office released another tool earlier this week to help connect people to resources and resources to people. ALtogetherAlabama.org is a one-stop shop for all Alabamians linking businesses, nonprofits, and people during this time.
