UK SMEs are confident about their future prospects, but recruitment is still a problem
British SMEs are now very confident and optimistic than ever about their future prospects, a recent report has been able to reveal, with recruitment difficulties being the only real reasons for concern.
The new report, produced by Aldermore in conjunction with YouGov and the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr),* suggests that that a third (33%) of SMEs plan to take on more staff within the next year. However, 36 per cent of medium sized businesses and 14 per cent of smaller companies said that finding the right staff can be quite problematic at times.
Cebr Managing Economist Rob Harbron said: “UK unemployment is falling back to near pre financial crisis levels, bringing with it the challenge of skills shortages. However despite these, it’s encouraging to see a large share of the SME population hoping to take on more staff. With low cost inflation supporting bottom lines, 2015 as a whole is looking to be a positive year for the private sector.”
