The State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development is conducting research on Alaska’s independent workforce, specifically individuals who work independently and are part of the creative core (STEM, design, consulting, business services, writing, IT, etc.) that are creating and trading ideas and information. If you are working independently and are creating readily transferable or widely useful products or if you are contracted by other companies, we would like your input.

Learning more about this growing sector of creative class workers will help us identify resources to benefit independent workers, fill labor gaps and raise awareness of this sector as a resource for Alaska businesses. The survey takes about 5-7 minutes to complete and responses will remain anonymous.

Survey participants will be entered to win a round-trip, domestic ticket on Delta Air Lines. Additionally, survey participants can elect to have their services listed on the Anchorage Economic Development Corporation website (or relevant local host site) as a resource for businesses looking to contract independent creative class workers.

If you have any questions about the survey please contact AEDC Business & Economic Development Director Bridgette Coleman at (907) 258-3700 or

We appreciate your valuable input!
