Columbus Chamber of Commerce Rolling-out New Program to Identify Business Success Factors
Columbus, GA – April 22, 2013 – The Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce is unveiling a business retention and expansion program called BusinessFirst, which is focused on assisting the local business community achieve its goals.
The BusinessFirst team will inquire about various aspects of business including workforce, facility and supplies, as well as local business climate factors such as public services, education, tax structure and the overall quality of life.
“BusinessFirst volunteers and Chamber of Commerce staff will meet face-to-face with executives, owners and key decision makers in a wide array of business and industry to hear first-hand about their everyday problems and help identify solutions,” said Jacki Lowe, 2013 chair of the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce. “We want to hear about companies that are facing barriers to business growth, considering an expansion, experiencing infrastructure or utility issues, having difficulty navigating regulatory processes, or having difficulty finding qualified employees.”
“As businesses provide this type of information, we’ll have an opportunity to identify areas where the Columbus Chamber of Commerce can lend assistance,” said Mike Gaymon, president and CEO of the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce. “BusinessFirst will strengthen relationships so that we can better understand the opportunities and challenges of businesses in our region. We want to reinforce that our local companies have one point of contact for their business questions and issues. There’s no need to try to navigate around governmental agencies, utilities and municipalities searching for an answer.”
