The Thames Valley Business Barometer

20 April 2016


The Thames Valley Business Barometer is a collaboration between BDO and marketing firm C8 Consulting, providing a twice yearly snapshot of business confidence and performance in the Thames Valley. The results offer a compelling view of business trends across the region and help inform decisions on growth, investment and employment.

Over 100 businesses took part in the survey between October and November 2015. In addition to the standard questions on business confidence and performance we also looked at how businesses in the region were approaching the issue of flexible working.

The report can be downloaded here and includes the profile interviews with Clean Linen Services, GreenTech Distribution, Maindec, Medical Supermarket and Recycling Technologies as well as an overview of flexible working from Professor Ginny Gibson of Henley Business School.

The Thames Valley Business Barometer is supported by a panel of over 30 business leaders. If you would like further information on the 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 Spring 2016 survey is now open and we invite all leaders of businesses in Berkshire, Oxfordshire, South Buckinghamshire, North Hampshire and Middlesex to take part and share their views.
