AlabamaWorks releases impact survey

AlabamaWorks is seeking respondents to a survey “designed to help the state fully understand the impact of this pandemic on the state’s workforce as well as provide a clear path forward for businesses, industry and state government.”

The statewide workforce development group has released the Alabama COVID-19 Workforce Response Survey at sm.aidt.edu/alabamaworks-survey.

“I am grateful to the Alabama Workforce Council for developing and deploying this much needed and user-friendly survey,” said Gov. 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.”

Alabama Workforce Council Chairman Tim McCartney said now more than ever, “business and industry leaders must continue to work together with Gov. Ivey’s administration and various state agencies to move us all forward together.”

“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,” McCartney added. “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 April 21 at 5 p.m. All businesses are highly encouraged to participate, as the responses are sought to help to protect Alabama’s workforce, manage the impact of COVID-19 and guide allocation of various resources, according to Alabama Works.
