Thames Valley Business Barometer

29 June 2015

Recruitment and retention in the Thames Valley – June 2015

The Thames Valley Business Barometer is a collaboration between BDO and C8 Consulting, providing a twice yearly snapshot of business and economic confidence in the Thames Valley. The results offer a compelling street-level view of business sentiment, helping to inform decisions on growth, investment and employment in the region.

More than 100 businesses across Berkshire, Oxfordshire, South Buckinghamshire and North Hampshire took part in the latest survey between March and May 2015. The report shows that the momentum of economic confidence in the Thames Valley appears to have consolidated.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those of you who completed the latest survey, those companies who agreed to be profiled in the report and the members of the Thames Valley Business Barometer panel who helped design and deliver the survey and disseminate the results.

If you would like further information on the Thames Valley Business Barometer and how you can get involved, or if you would like to receive a printed copy of the latest report, please contact Ian White.

The next survey will be carried out in Autumn 2015 and I hope that you will be able to spare a few minutes to take part and share your views with us.
