Last chance to have a say on business performance in The Hills

The Sydney Hills Business Chamber, The Hills Shire Council and McCrindle Research have partnered on a project to measure the sentiments and needs of local businesses in The Hills.

And Mayor of The Hills Shire, Councillor Yvonne Keane is encouraging business owners and managers to get involved by answering a short three minute survey, the Business Performance and Sentiment Index (PSI), which aims to establish an understanding of business performance, conditions, sentiments and economic growth in the region.

Mayor Keane said feedback to date had been “incredibly constructive” and it was not too late for Hills business owners and managers to have their say with the online survey open until March 31.

“It has been fantastic to see so many business owners and managers engaged during this consultation period. If you haven’t already, I would encourage you to head to the website and complete the online survey as we work hand-in-hand with businesses to deliver better economic outcomes for the region,” Mayor Keane said.

“This survey is a real opportunity for us to understand the challenges and opportunities you face and how we can maintain our growing local economy, now and into the future.

“We want to see our businesses grow and succeed, and this survey is one way Council and the Sydney Hills Business Chamber are working together to make this happen.”

This is the third year of the survey, which is an initiative of the Sydney Business Chamber, supported by Council and executed by McCrindle Research.

Following the survey, focus groups will be used to explore the findings and provide greater depth and clarity as to the recommendations and issues in The Hills.
