Get Checked:
Free Health Checks for businesses

(Tuesday 11th November) Businesses across England are being urged to review their fitness to ride out the economic slowdown, by taking advantage of Business Link’s free-of-charge, easy to access Business Health Check.

The Health Check offers an impartial, objective assessment of business performance, identifying key strengths, prioritising areas for improvement and highlighting business opportunities. Available for any company, regardless of size or sector, the Health Checks are tailored to focus on the specific needs and circumstances of each business.

Among the many benefits are:

· Developing a financial strategy to maximise cash flow
· Identifying opportunities and effective tactics to boost sales
· Building resilience to lead the business through the changing economic and market climate
· Creating a clear action plan to achieve your business goals

The Health Checks can be performed over the phone, in workshops or one-to-one with an experienced Business Link adviser.

Businesses can also fill in an interactive questionnaire on the Business Link website, which helps to evaluate potential problems they may face and suggest ways in which they can be resolved. Once completed, businesses are urged to make an appointment with a Business Link adviser for help in reviewing and prioritising the recommended actions to be taken.

A Business Link customer who has made the most of the Health Checks is Tanya Rostron of water cooler supplier, Water at Work (Midlands) Ltd. She says: “With the current situation it is now even more important to use the support available from Business Link. In order for businesses to trade through the market they need to take stock of their current markets and products and look for opportunities. In this regard I recently used the Business Link Health Check which offers a swot analysis to support business development plans. My advice to any business or would-be entrepreneur is go to Business Link, it works.”

Ganesh Selvarajah, from Business Link, who has extensive experience of working with senior Directors in an array of businesses explained: “Smart businesses review their performance regularly to look for early signs of any issues that will affect their profitability. The Health Checks are a really effective way of doing this. Clients find that they give them an excellent overview of the strengths they need to build on as well as identifying potential problems, such as a cash flow.”
