Business Breakfast 2022

Thank you to everyone who attended our business ratepayers’ breakfast.

Over 40 delegates joined us online this week to hear about recruiting staff and new coronavirus support funding at Wychavon’s annual business ratepayers breakfast meeting.

Keynote speaker Tom Beard from Serco offered advice on how to fill vacancies in the current challenging labour market.

There was also information about new funding available to help the recruitment of apprentices and trainees, as well as work to support Wychavon’s wider economic recovery.

Details of new grant funding for businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic, and in particular the spread of the Omicron variant, was also discussed.

Updates on plans for the future of the district’s town centres, business rates and Wychavon’s budget setting process for the next financial year was also on the agenda.

Cllr Richard Morris, Executive Board Member for Economic Growth and Tourism on Wychavon District Council, said: “Listening to businesses and acting on their feedback is really important to us, and the Wychavon Business Breakfast is a great opportunity for business owners to find out about what we’re doing to support them, to ask questions and to give their views.”
