FGS Global’s Business Policy Survey (BPS)
The BPS is FGS Global’s quarterly survey of key business influencers that measures and tracks attitudes toward major public policy issues.
The influencers were selected from three groups:
Employees: 400 individuals who work at for-profit companies with at least 1,000 employees
Business Decision-Makers (BDMs): 400 individuals who make hiring, purchasing or financial investment decisions on behalf of their companies
Investors: 400 individuals with $100K or more in securities investments who follow news about business and financial markets closely
The Q2 2022 BPS report shows that:
Inflation remains the top priority among corporate influencers.
Among employees and business decision-makers, inflation now ranks first, up from second and third respectively in the previous quarter.
A majority of influencers feel the Biden Administration is not doing enough to combat inflation.
Corporations are expected to take action in response to the war in Ukraine but worries about inflation appear more acute than geopolitical concerns.
Influencers, particularly investors, want corporate action in response to the war.
Containing Russian aggression ranks relatively low on the list of government priorities; there is more anxiety about the potential economic impacts of the war than about the war itself.
