What threatens SME growth in the market today?

Although there have been recent improvements in the position of SME’s the difficulty in locating the best person for the position still poses a huge obstacle to continued growth.

In particular businesses based in the West Midlands have felt this bite most strongly, second only to companies trading from London. As a West Midlands based recruiter this struck a chord with us, not simply because we are in the prime position to offer assistance.

The recovery of the economy is dependent on a community of thriving small and medium sized businesses. However without a large and experienced internal Human Resources team, and the financial resources available to larger more established businesses, these companies can often suffer a skills gap.

One out of every six businesses reported that a struggle to find efficient and talent sales individuals was their biggest challenge, with lack of IT and Financial Management employees also required. In recent years the economic climate has pushed out smaller businesses and left growing gaps on the high street which have been absorbed by large corporations and property agents.

The British economy would not be the same without those valuable corporations, but equally we also boast a proud heritage of start-ups and boutiques, and medium sized businesses. ENSales is proud to offer support to SME’s, particularly in the West Midlands and the surrounding areas.
