Our Newham Business & Enterprise

It’s clear from recent reports from the Office for National Statistics that consumer confidence is low and this is because of the cost of living crisis. Retail sales dropped overall by 0.5% in May, with food spending down by 1.6%.

The impact can be clearly felt by businesses, with online recruitment advertising decreasing in all regions; the largest decrease occurred in London – 6%. Furthermore, 76% of businesses say they have concerns around inflation.

Find out more about running your commercial fleet efficiently, lowering your cost of recruitment, a checklist of what you can do to make necessary hard decisions and the additional support available to you and your business during these challenge times on our cost of doing business webpage.
