You will receive this survey request each month to report the number of new employees and interns you have hired for the month.
We need to record this information for grant and economic development reporting purposes. All responses are aggregated and no individual company information will be included. The more accurate the reporting can be this way, the less intrusive our annual survey will be.
Please respond to the survey and any follow up calls from my office as soon as possible.
