Help us, help you. Have your say in the latest regional business survey
15th February 2021
The Sheffield City Region Quarterly Economic Review provides insight into local economic trading conditions and performance. It is the barometer used to take an overall assessment on the strength of the economy at a national and regional level.
Businesses have an opportunity to feed into the work for Q1 2021 by completing the survey that has been launched today (15th February). It provides a chance to ensure the business voice is heard within Government and by senior decision makers.
Tom Sutton, Head of Policy and Representation of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, said:
“Equipped with data obtained we are able to represent the voice of business and lobby on your behalf. Through the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) we interact with ministers and senior decision makers. Armed with statistics we are actively pushing Government for targeted support where needed and we are calling for a clear roadmap that will allow us to transition from lockdown to the return of a fully functioning and operating economy.
“The results from Q4 2020 indicated the need and importance of measures that inspire business confidence. Sheffield Chamber of Commerce will continue to ensure the voices of businesses in our region are heard at the highest levels.
“To achieve this, we need your help. 5 minutes spent completing the survey will help shape the insights that are provided to Government. Ministers act on this data. Government departments formulate and implement economic policies that will have an effect for years to come. Please ensure your business is represented within this important work.”
The Sheffield City Region Quarterly Economic Review (QER) is part of the British Chamber’s Quarterly Economic Survey. With over 6,000 responses per quarter, it is the UK’s largest and most representative private business survey. The fieldwork will remain live until 8th March.
