Early Assessment of Business Link Health Checks-uk-2009

Early Assessment of Business Link Health Checks-uk-2009

Published by dmaproiect
Business Link Health Checks were introduced in November 2008 as part of the government’s Real Help for Businesses Now package to help businesses, especially small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), identify and respond positively to the issues faced as a result of the economic downturn. This early stage assessment has found that the rationale for the Health Checks is valid and there are identifiable benefits to SMEs in the UK economy from having this form of support in place. The evidence shows that Health Checks improve SMEs’ ability to survive the current economic downturn. They also enable businesses to enhance their management and strategic capabilities and put in place strategies which will help them achieve growth as the economy emerges from recession.
