Paris Economic Development Corporation Announces Employer Survey

Paris, Texas – January 14, 2020

The Paris Economic Development Corporation is distributing the PEDC Lamar County Employer Survey beginning on January 14, 2020 to gauge the current workforce needs of the local businesses in Paris and Lamar County, Texas.

The PEDC Lamar County Employer Survey is short.  Taking on average less than five minutes to complete, it is to be completed by individuals in charge of hiring at local businesses throughout Paris and Lamar County. The Lamar County Chamber of Commerce will partner with the PEDC in distributing the survey to both retail, service, health and industrial businesses.

PEDC Executive Director Michael Paris states, “A lot of job information we get for Paris and Lamar County is collected by the State of Texas or the federal government.  This information does not give us a clear picture of local job openings. The PEDC Lamar County Employer Survey will give us an accurate picture of job skills needed to fill local openings. We need local employers to take just a few minutes and complete this survey. The information will help us articulate needs to local high schools, Paris Junior College and the local Workforce Solutions center.”

If you are an employer in Lamar County, please take a few moments to complete this survey. If you are not an employer, please share this information with someone that you think may be able to complete the survey.

The survey can be found at the following link: PEDC Lamar County Employer Survey  

For more information about this survey, please contact Michael Paris at the PEDC at (903) 784-6964 or mparis@paristexasusa.com.
