Survey explores COVID-19 impact

Alabama Works has announced a new tool for all businesses, large and small, related to the COVID-19 impact and future focus of the work force in the state.

The Alabama COVID-19 Workforce Response Survey is designed to help the state fully understand the impact of this pandemic on the state workforce as well as provide a clear path forward for business and industry and state government.

Dana Sanders, Pike County Chamber of Commerce, said the Chamber wants to make sure that local businesses and industries find relief in the aftermath of COVID-19.

The survey is an opportunity for local business owners to share how the COVID-19 is affecting their businesses, Sanders said.

“All Pike County businesses and organizations are highly encouraged to participate in the Alabama COVID-19 Workforce Response Survey as it will guide the allocations for various resources,” Sanders said.

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey expressed appreciation to the Alabama Workforce Council for developing and employing the “much needed and user-friendly survey.”

“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,” Ivy said.

To participate in the Alabama COVID-19 Workforce Response Survey, “like” the Pike County Chamber of Commerce on Facebook or visit the Alabama Works website. The survey is quick and easy and will be of benefit to Alabama businesses and industries, large and small, and to working  Alabamians.

Responses to the survey will be accepted through Tuesday, April, 21 at p.m.
