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 Tennessee Business Leaders Survey were provided between January 10 and January 31, 2024. Three in four survey respondents said there were not enough appropriately trained workers for their industry, and half added that Tennessee should improve training and education opportunities to expand the supply of workers. We summarize key themes that emerge in our Winter 2024 report.
