The UK has 5.5 million small businesses? So What?
Mike Cherry, Federation of Small Businesses(FSB) National Chairman, said: “We know that embracing digital technology can help businesses in every sector to be more productive. Firms risk being left behind unless they have the skills to take advantage of technology to remain competitive and responsive to their customers.”
We are an SME and have worked with a range of businesses and support the government’s initiative to retrain through the National Retraining Scheme. As it is vital for business growth that staff can access basic digital skills training.
Continuing professional development within small businesses is not usually a priority, though essential to demonstrate a company’s corporate social responsibility and to engage and motivate employees. We are aware of the support required in this area and work with teams to embed a CPD culture.
