In our 2023 SME survey, we focused on how businesses were managing new challenges – such as tax rises, staff recruitment, and political uncertainty. Were those external factors becoming a platform in which they could thrive, or were they proving to be a struggle to overcome?
We also looked at employment legislation and the impact any changes might have had on businesses, along with asking our respondents what their biggest decisions looked like in 2023 and these decisions determined the overall performance of their company.
Specifically we found that:
- 51% predicted rising costs would be a key challenge
- 50% stated employee retention would be the most important aspect of people management
- 70% stated that available finance would have the biggest impact on decision making
