This survey is intended to determine the current workforce needs of Arizona businesses.  If you are not the right person to answer questions about hiring employees or necessary employability skills, please forward this survey to the appropriate representative in your organization. 

Please respond by Tuesday, November 26. Survey results will be published in late January in our quarterly Pulse of Business Survey and Business Outreach Summary report.  You will not be required to submit contact information, and your input will remain anonymous.

Please answer the following questions to help us understand your hiring experience over the past year and your hiring plans for 2020.
