Helping small businesses recover (3 Sept)

According to official data, small businesses with fewer than 50 employees are the largest and most potential portion of UK economic activity. Other advanced industrial countries are likely to have a similar proportion. It is also known that such businesses experience a high closure rate after major incidents whether the cause be floods or pandemics. Bouncing back – or ‘building back together’ as the government proclaims – is often a hard task that may take some time. Yet there are some simple steps that can be taken by businesses themselves as well as by local authorities to support business communities.

This webinar will explore those simple actions, ones that are grounded in past experiences and not just from the UK. To help get the panel discussion off the ground, Facebook will introduce learnings from their recently published small business resilience guide for North America; this forms part of Facebook’s online ‘Summer of Support’ series. The guide will be shared with registered participants. This webinar is free for ICAEW members.
