Beacon South West Business Barometer Survey


Working alongside Beacon South West, SERIO recently completed a business barometer survey for Beacon which captured the views of high growth businesses in the region.

The six monthly survey provides insight to the mood of business across the peninsula, as well as views on skills and recruitment, innovation, barriers to growth and exports. The research found that one fifth of businesses surveyed indicated significant increases in profits during last six months of 2011 compared to the same period in 2010. Respondents also reported in 2011 that they were slightly more confident about their businesses future prospects. If you would like to receive a copy of the report please contact us.
