Firms act to improve productivity and competitiveness

A SURVEY of more than 1,000 businesses in the Highlands and Islands has shown that almost all (95 per cent) have taken action in the past 12 months to become more productive and competitive.

This is according to the findings of the latest business panel survey published last week by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE).

The most common step taken by businesses (71 per cent) is encouraging staff to submit ideas for improvement. Others include introducing new practices (69 per cent), investing in premises or equipment (67 per cent), and collaborating with other businesses (65 per cent).
