Sneak Peek of Economic Outlook Survey Results

Sneak Peek of Economic Outlook Survey Results

During the first week of 2016, the Fox Cities Regional Partnership conducted it’s annual Economic Outlook Survey.  We were pleased to receive responses from more than 200 organizations. We are especially excited to see the increased level of optimism among local employers compared to previous years – particularly as it relates to growing the local workforce.

Industry categories include:







• Manufacturing • Professional Services
• Hospitals & Clinics
• Administrative & Support
• Accommodation & Food Service
• Retail
• Wholesale
• Financial
• Insurance
• Real Estate
• Public Administration
• Construction
• Non-Profits
• Transportation
• All categories combined


Led by optimism in all sectors, the Fox Cities economy is projected to be the strongest in 5 years. How do area employers anticipate that a good economy will affect their businesses?

The manufacturing sector leads the pack of local firms expecting to invest in facilities and/or equipment in 2016.  Will area employers add jobs?
