Over the past five years, UK businesses have faced a series of challenges, including Brexit, the global pandemic, and economic instability. With the possibility of a recession looming, it’s natural to wonder how business leaders have navigated these obstacles and what the future holds.

To gain insight into these questions, Speakers Corner conducted a comprehensive survey of 500 owners and directors of UK businesses employing over 100 people. Our goal was to understand the current priorities and challenges these companies face as they transition to the post-COVID era.

We recently released a report that delves into our survey findings and provides an evidence-based overview of the current state of the UK business landscape, along with valuable insights from experts across industries.

Key highlights from our report

  1. The Productivity Imperative: Despite ongoing various challenges, productivity remains a top priority for business leaders in 2024. Our research reveals that the UK lags behind other G7 economies in this regard, presenting both a challenge and an opportunity for improvement. Businesses are well aware of the need to enhance efficiency and effectiveness to remain competitive in a rapidly evolving global market.


  1. Embracing Technology: The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) has caught the attention of business leaders, with many believing that AI will soon, if it isn’t already, play a significant role in daily operations. This tech-driven optimism highlights the potential for transformative change in the way businesses operate. From automation to data analysis, AI offers opportunities to streamline processes, improve decision-making, and drive innovation.


  1. Balancing Act – Work and Wellbeing: The debate on hybrid and flexible working arrangements continues to evolve. While hybrid models are seen as a productivity boom, they also bring new challenges, including heightened stress levels among business leaders. Our report delves into the factors contributing to this stress and offers insights into striking the right work-life balance. Businesses can enhance productivity and drive long-term success by prioritising employee wellbeing and fostering a supportive work environment.


  1. Optimism Amidst Turbulence: Despite the tumultuous economic and political landscape, there is a prevailing sense of optimism among business leaders. The vast majority expressed confidence in their company’s success in 2024, citing resilience in the face of adversity as a driving force behind this optimism. While challenges remain, from rising costs to technological disruption, businesses are adapting and innovating to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
