Wiltshire Business Online:

12:48pm Thursday 2nd October 2014

ONE in ten SME bosses across the South West say that they are in constant contact with the office while on holiday, according to a recent survey.   A further 28% say that they are in touch with work at least once a day while on annual leave, while 36% check emails but don’t make contact with the office unless it’s urgent.   The figures are drawn from the latest Close Brothers Business Barometer, a quarterly poll of SME owners and managers from a range of sectors across the UK.   Mike Randall, CEO of Close Brothers Asset Finance said: “It’s understandable that leaving work behind can be particularly difficult when you’re responsible for running a small business as there might not be anyone else to pick up tasks while you’re away.   “While almost two thirds of small and medium sized business owners in the South West told us that they believe that taking a break from work can give their business a boost, in reality over a third of the total respondents take less than two weeks of annual leave each year.   “Our statistics also show that when they do take time out, many bosses in the region find it difficult to completely switch off."   The Business Barometer results reveal the biggest sources of stress for local SME owners while on holiday are:   ·     General anxiety about being away from the business (23%). ·     Increased workload upon return to work (20%). ·     Reduction in employee productivity while they’re gone (13%). Furthermore, more than half of small business owners surveyed in the South West admit that managing cash flow is one of the major challenges they face.   For more news from Close Brothers Asset Finance please visit www.closeassetfinance.co.uk
