The CBI has commented on the Government’s plans to introduce a Help to Grow scheme to support SMEs to lift productivity.
Tony Danker, CBI Director-General:
“Smaller businesses are lacking the cash and capacity to keep innovating after investing heavily to adapt and survive in 2020. Help to Grow could make a real difference on the ground.
“The UK has some of the most productive companies in the world, but also a long tail who are not yet firing on all cylinders.
“Management training, access to digital advice and making productivity-enhancing software more affordable will all help smaller businesses become more effective and play their full part in driving the economic recovery.”
