THE Star Business Industrial Survey 2013 was FREE in The Star on Wednesday, January 23 - but you can now also read it here on our web site.
Bob Rae, our Business Editor, explains here why you need to read this 36-page supplement.
Business has been facing tough times across the UK, but is the same true of companies operating in the increasingly diverse Sheffield City Region economy?
How has manufacturing responded to the challenge to becoming one of the leading driving forces for growth and is it going to be able to tap in to the skills and funding that it needs to grow?
Has the creative and digital sector geared up to meet a similar challenge and can Sheffield still maintain its claim to be the UK’s e-learning capital?
Are we attracting and creating the entrepreneurs we need and how well are we preparing them for success?
How has the property market fared? Do we have the properties and the transport, energy and digital infrastructures we need for the future?
What is the future for the retail and leisure markets and how much did the region’s sporting facilities and technologists benefit from the Olympics?
All these questions and more will be answered when ‘Survey 2013,’ The Star’s annual review of business and commerce, now in its 90th year, is published on Wednesday, January 23.
