The impact of technology on UK businesses over the last 25 years

Life as a business owner is tough, with continuous challenges at every stage of the business journey. Our series of blogs follows the changes in business over the last 25 years, as we have guided our clients through every stage of their business journey.


There is no doubt that one of the biggest changes over the last few decades has been the increased use of technology in our day to day lives, and its impact on businesses, from micro to large corporations.

Computers and phones have become faster, smaller and more portable. Desktop use has decreased, and laptops and tablets have become the more popular way to work.

Today, everything is instant, or our customers expect it to be! Whether it is finding out an answer or a business via Google or contacting a company by Twitter, people expect you to have a 24 hour presence.

While this means increased opportunity for selling, it can also mean more management – have you protected your business for the negative PR that can be raised by a few choice comments on social media? Do you have a strategy in place for your employees’ own time spent online? It is a minefield for businesses to negotiate, and CMC have always been ready to guide and advise.

How do I motivate my staff for the growth of my business?

We work with many business owners in all industries who are striving to grow their business to help provide them with a secure retirement later in life.  A common question frequently asked is ‘How do I motivate my staff and should I consider financial rewards?’ This is a good question to ask, as it’s vital business owners get the best out of their staff. People are the heart of a business and unmotivated staff could stall the future growth.

A recent survey published by Bupa on working habits of 2,700 SME employees found that 24% admitted they are reluctant to win new contract if they feel it will result in extra work for them. Plus 39% of those interviewed pulled a ‘sickie’ last year as they felt unmotivated to go to work.

It is essential that your staff are mentally stimulated, fully engaged and ready to support the growth of your business.

While money is clearly important, non financial benefits can make a big impact. These include:

Selling your Business Seminar shows Worcester Owners the Way Forward

Yesterday’s evening seminar at the historic building, The Commandery in Worcester was well received by the 30 local business owners including spouses who are considering exiting or selling their business within the next 5 years.

The seminar was delivered by our Worcester based partner Bob Brown, SME Solicitors, Haines Watts and McKnight Wyvern Financial Services and gave the owners the knowledge and steps to achieve the best possible price for their eventual business sale. Spouses or partners were also invited to this seminar as we appreciate that selling businesses can be a very personal and sensitive matter.

Bob comments “All those attending gave feedback that the event fully met their expectations.  We are pleased that everyone who attended felt the presentations on the night were helpful and 100% of attendees found the content across all of the four sessions very useful and relevant.”
