|SMEs upbeat but recruitment causes sleepless nights|
|Monday, 17 August 2015|
Following the economic uncertainty of the past few years, Britain’s SMEs are confident and optimistic about their future prospects according to a new survey which has found that almost half (49%) of British SME decision-makers do not have any business concerns keeping them awake at night. At the same time, those who do say they have concerns identify finding skilled staff as the most common anxiety.
The new report, produced in conjunction with YouGov and the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr), shows that a third (33%) of SMEs plan to take on more staff within the next year, a very positive sign for the UK job market. However, 36 per cent of medium sized businesses and 14 per cent of smaller companies said that finding the right staff is causing them sleepless nights. Late payments, rising costs and competition with other businesses were also key concerns for business decision makers.
