The business doctor is on call

With Jill Lee of Business Link

While health checks are an important aspect of many people’s lives, assessing the health of a business is often forgotten. As with physical health, identifying and tackling symptoms early is the best medicine.

To increase the chance of survival and success, Business Link offers a free interactive business health check at www.businesslink.gov.uk/northeast. It can be used to analyse key areas, including finance and administration, with the aim of identifying and avoiding future problems and improving business performance.

The easy to use online check asks a number of questions which help identify potential difficulties before they arise. For example, should the health check reveal a high staff turnover and trouble associated with unplanned absences, Business Link can provide guidance on improving staff retention, managing absence and sickness or dealing with stress.

The website enables businesses to access key information at the touch of a button, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, entrepreneurs requiring a more detailed discussion of their business needs are invited to contact out team directly.

Our account managers are available to review business performance, provide one-to-one guidance and identify support.

By identifying a business’ strengths and improvement needs, a Business Link adviser can help focus valuable resources on the activities that deliver the most benefits for growth and profitability.

Business Link’s substantial team of expert brokers operate across the region in local access points and on a mobile basis. For further information about Business Link visit www.businesslink.gov.uk/northeast or call 0845 600 9 006.
