Sealaska Wants Your Feedback
Monday, April 26, 2021
Every few years, Sealaska reaches out to shareholders as part of an ongoing effort to gather shareholder opinions and feedback. Sealaska is launching the most recent shareholder survey the week of April 19. We look forward to hearing from shareholders through the work.
Why commission the surveys?
Surveys are a great way to engage with shareholders. Since 1981, we’ve been reaching out to shareholders to get a sense of priorities and feelings about Sealaska. It gives us insight into what you care about and allows us to incorporate shareholder voices into our decisions. The surveys are just one way we connect with shareholders, but it’s important feedback because we track it over time to see where we’re making progress and where we need to focus more attention. The results of the survey help us prioritize shareholder concerns in all that we do and inform future decision making.
Sealaska does not see individual shareholder responses because the surveys are conducted by an independent third–party research firm called DHM Research. The survey is hosted on DHM’s server, and you are assured complete anonymity and confidentiality.
