New survey of employers about impact of housing

Posted by: maura on August 2, 2011 - 9:00am

There's a new local survey of employers asking about housing’s availability, condition and affordability and its impact on their ability to attract and retain workers.  The survey was created by the Vermont Housing Finance Agency, the Vermont Association of Realtors, Vermont's Department of Economic, Housing and Community Development and the Greater Burlington Industrial Corporation.

The survey is available online and while the results will be completely confidential and only analyzed in aggregate, respondents who choose to provide their contact information will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to a store/restaurant of their choice.

The results will be used in two upcoming reports from VHFA:

  1. Chittenden county-based businesses will be analyzed separately for inclusion in a housing assessment being conducted  by VHFA for the Chittenden Regional Planning Commission’s ECOS project; and
  2. Entries from employers in every region of the state will be analyzed together for a future statewide report VHFA hopes to publish in 2012.

This opportunity to share your experiences will only be available for a few weeks, so take the survey today!
