Business “Health Checks” Practical business support available through Business Link

21 October 2008


Business Link is offering small and medium sized enterprises a free "Health Check" to help them to respond to current global economic challenges. The "Health Check" is part of a package of support announced by the Government today.

Small and medium sized businesses employ over 2.6 million people across the South East and are essential for the livelihoods of hard working families. Today’s cross-Government package focuses on the things small and medium sized enterprises have identified as top priorities – cash flow, access to finance and training for staff.

Business Link "Health Checks" are comprehensive business reviews which identify strengths, areas for improvement and issues for trading companies. Problems and opportunities may be obvious or hidden by a number of factors. Business Link Advisers can guide companies through the review, offer solutions to issues, and help the company to write a realistic action plan.

Business Link’s Deborah Wyatt:

"I urge business owners to find out how they can strengthen their companies today through a free “Health Check". An objective business review, carried out online, over the phone, face to face with a Business Link Adviser or in a workshop with peers will fully assess your company’s strengths, gaps and opportunities.

"It is particularly important, in the current financial climate, to identify and deal with business issues early."

  • Maximising cash flow
