OSHA Impact Survey
Due to increased enforcement and potential changes to OSHA standards under the new administration, the Florida Chamber is surveying businesses statewide so it can continue to represent the Florida collective perspective. Safety is the number one priority, and your input matters. Please take this 2–3-minute short survey. Your company name will not be shared outside of the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
Share Your Thoughts In Our Workforce Needs Survey
A high-quality workforce is Florida's best long-term economic development strategy and is crucial to becoming the 10th largest economy by 2030. We need your help to understand your company's evolving workforce needs and the impact the pandemic is having on your recruiting and training goals.
Please take a few minutes to complete our 2021 Workforce Needs Survey. The results will be shared with and incorporated into the Florida Chamber Foundation’s 2021 Florida Workforce Needs Study. We appreciate your input!
