Helping you keep your finger on the pulse Sapio Research’s business opinion poll is live with the 3rd summary now ready to go. Scroll down to download the report for free.

  • Business confidence is falling, and turnover expectations are down, with 63% having experienced a reduction this month, compared to 54% at the start of lockdown.
  • Is working from home set to become a new ‘norm’?  34% say it’s having a positive impact on their productivity, and a further 33% say that reduced travel is positive too
  • Sustainability goals; For 34% of business decision makers the onus is being placed on governments. Just 17% believe the responsibility lies primarily with organisations.  Are organisations trying to ‘pass the buck’, or do they simply need the leadership and regulation from a central point?
