Take part in the Chamber's local quarterly economic survey


In Summary

General | 15th May 2023
The Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is the UK’s largest and longest running independent survey of business sentiment.

In Detail

Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce represents the views of its members to national government, ensuring that the business case drives government policy.

A great benefit of being part of this extensive network of business support is that your views are represented in its Quarterly Economic Survey Reports. The latest QES is now open and FinditinWorcestershire members are invited to take part.

The survey is briefed extensively to MPs, Ministers, Advisors and Civil Servants across UK government departments. The results from the survey are also widely used by the Bank of England and the Office for Budgetary Responsibility to influence policy making.

In recent surveys, businesses have indicated similar challenges such as rising energy costs, inflation, and the stretched labour market. In the previous survey we saw a reduction in the number of businesses reporting inflation as a cause for concern to their business.

This quarter’s survey has a focus on apprenticeships, training, and workforce planning.

The research conducted will be shared with the British Chamber of Commerce, along with 53 UK Chambers, and provide a framework from which Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce can influence local and national partners, and benefit Chamber Members in the two counties. Read more here >
