An increase in growth initiative spending is expected by 26.7% of survey participants, while 6.7% expect their company’s spending for growth initiatives to decrease this year.

Last week’s CI CyberNews CyberPoll asked readers about their company’s growth initiatives. Of the total respondents, 26.7% said that their company is spending 0% of its revenue on growth initiatives; 40.0% answered less than 10%; 26.7% said 11-19%; and 6.7% said 20% or higher.

Those levels are expected to remain the same in 2009 for the majority of respondents (66.7%). An increase is expected by 26.7%, while 6.7% expect their company’s spending for growth initiatives to decrease this year.

This week’s CyberPoll will take a look at job losses and economic recovery. Be sure to check it out!
