Firms urged to have New Year health check
Business Link has urged business owners to get their firms in shape for 2009 by taking advantage of its free online business health–check service.
The organisation promises a quick ‘MOT’ where firms can use Business Link’s interactive, online questionnaire to check they are maximising their cashflow, marketing and business planning tools.
A more detailed health check is also available, where firms can opt for a free on–site visit from a Business Link adviser, who will look at company processes such as financial procedures.
Businesses can also request a tailor–made action plan to help them cope with the effects of the economic downturn, and a follow–up monitoring service is available, to make sure firms are on the right track. Business Link adviser Ganesh Selvarajah said:
“Smart businesses review their performance regularly to look for early signs of any issues that will affect their profitability. The health checks are a really effective way of doing this. Clients find that they give them an excellent overview of the strengths they need to build on, as well as identifying potential problems.”
