Regional Insights Panel

In collaboration with the Nelson Regional Development Agency and supported by NBS, we continue to build our Regional Insights Panel, ahead of the next business survey. This is your opportunity to inform us on the issues your business facing, and how you are managing in the current climate. Your insights will inform our strategic and operational planning, and our advocacy efforts on behalf of the business community in Nelson Tasman. They will also assist us in improving our service offerings and responding to the needs of our clients and members. Thank you to the 325 businesses who have joined the panel, and to those who participated in our last survey. If your business is not already involved, we encourage you to join.

We have been able to draw some insightful findings from our first two business surveys. We know skills and talent shortages are one of the main challenges businesses are facing right now, so it has been heartening to hear that 38% of businesses surveyed are introducing increased flexibility and other measures to retain and attract staff. This tells us that businesses are responding to the shortage and making changes to minimise the impact on their staff.  Help us understand and track key business challenges for the benefit of our region!  Click here to join the Regional Business Panel.
