Tennessee Business Leaders Survey

The Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research created the Business Leaders Survey in August 2020. Responses are collected biannually from business leaders across the state to provide a unique perspective on Tennessee and the nation’s economy.

Responses from the most recent survey were provided between January 6 and January 26, 2023. Responses from the most recent Tennessee Business Leaders Survey are showing an increasing optimism for Tennessee’s economy while continuing to be pessimistic about the national economy. Almost 66% of survey respondents said they don’t have an adequate supply of workers trained to work in their industries.  We summarize key themes that emerge in our Winter 2023 report.
