The Chamber's Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is the region’s barometer of business confidence.
Sent out in February, June, September and November each year, the information on trading conditions, UK and export sales, employment and capacity levels is analysed across the county and by region, and then nationally by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).
As the most authoritative national business survey, the results, alongside those from other Chambers, form part of the largest survey of its kind in the UK and is recognised as a key economic indicator by the Government, the Bank of England and independent economists. Its results allow the Chamber to accurately represent an up-to-date snapshot of current operating conditions and business confidence across the three counties in our engagement work with local, regional and national decision-makers.
Your opinions and views are very important to us and they help to make the services we provide even better!
Small or large, it applies to all and rest assured you can skip bits that do not apply to your type of business.
So please support this important work and take part in the simple survey.

How can I contribute?
The survey consists of tick-box questions that cover several aspects of your business, such as employment, sector, investment and external factors, and should take just a few minutes to complete.
How are the survey results released?
Shropshire Chamber communicates the results of the survey to members through a variety of channels. For example, we publish the full report and summary on our website, provide detailed presentations of the survey findings at various events and we also provides a press release for use by local and regional media.
