CHAMBER NEWS Peer networking for SMEs


Employers show support for staff In a year like no other, the


renewed focus on health and wellbeing has been demonstrated by 60 employers across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland as they pledged to support their workforce. The organisations, which


collectively employ 18,500 people, made the commitment by signing the Wellbeing at Work Charter, offered by Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport, and funded by local authorities in the three areas. Director of resources Lucy


Robinson said: “When employees feel better and more able to share how they are actually feeling, a business can support them more effectively, which in turn reduces staff turnover.”

New peer-to-peer networking programmes will enable business leaders to collaborate with like-minded individuals to discuss current challenges and grow their organisations for future success. The Chamber-backed Business Gateway Growth Hub


is now delivering the programme across 14 peer networks across Leicestershire, while the D2N2 Growth Hub brings together 11 SMEs in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Sectors covered between the two networks include agriculture, construction, digital and creative, fashion and textiles, food and drink, healthcare, life sciences, manufacturing, retail, tourism and hospitality sectors. There are also dedicated mixed-sector groups specifically aimed at high-growth, women-owned and BAME businesses. The online sessions will give companies the flexibility


to create a trusted support network, helping to build and strengthen business, and improve overall performance. The programme will also help them address the impact of Covid-19 and Brexit by coming together to work through common issues, and benefit from one-to-one coaching on a range of topics. Leaders and senior managers are invited to take part


if they have operated for at least one year, employ at least five people, record a turnover of at least £100,000 and aspire to improve business output. A network of facilitators, who are experts in their


respective fields, will chair the sessions, including Leicester-based Marketing Voice managing director Harmeet Singh. He said: “As a digital marketing business, we know how


important networking is, and understand that by sharing issues and concerns, you can gain valuable insight from those who have been in your position before.


Marketing Voice managing director Harmeet Singh “We are excited about working with local businesses


and helping them to grow, with the ultimate goal of driving the economy forward within the local area, which we are very proud to be a part of.” Growth Hub manager Jon Egley added: “We are


delighted to have launched Peer Networks, which will provide vital sector focused business support to ambitious businesses in Leicester and Leicestershire.”
