The Chamber Network: On the Side of Business

2nd November 2020

The Sheffield City Region Quarterly Economic Review (QER) survey is now open and is asking leaders across the region how the current economic climate is affecting business conditions.

Tom Sutton, Head of Policy and Representation at Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, said:

“Once again we find ourselves in challenging conditions. On the verge of a national lockdown following a recent move to the highest level of Coronavirus restrictions as region. It presents businesses with an environment that is constantly changing and unpredictable.  

“In the Q4 survey we are keen to understand the impact. What do these changes mean for you and for your business? We exist to elevate your voice. We have the Governments attention and we will ensure that they listen to our businesses.

“As a network we have devised our five business tests that must be met to limit the impact of Coronavirus restrictions on businesses and jobs. We continue to push this agenda with No.10 and the results from this latest survey will provide further grounding to this policy work as it develops.

“Help the Chamber and the Chamber Network continue to set the business agenda.

“We are advocating for you. We need your help. Please complete the survey, it is vitally important.”

Open until 23 November, the survey only takes 3 minutes to complete and can be taken by CEOs or senior managers.
