The 2018 Results Are In!  495/MetroWest Employer Survey & Forecast

As a public-private non-profit charged with the 495/MetroWest regional economy,

the 495/MetroWest Partnership is proud of the success of our regional employer survey with

Framingham State University and we welcome our new media partner, The MetroWest Daily

News. The results of our 5th Annual Survey are in and we have no doubt that the information will

continue to provide regional leaders and policymakers with hard data on the business conditions

facing our employers as well as top concerns for the year ahead.
