What prompted me to write this blog on Community Support Through Lockdown, was one that is featured on my website entitled Building Strong Connections in the Local Community
There was something that I was thinking about the other day. In life there are certain things we have done, that have either gone well or not so well, The particular example which I was thinking about was my work in supporting my local Chamber.
Even with the advent of Lockdown, there are still opportunities to be supporting your local business community. As a person I feel that it is important to maintain a presence, not only with your own business. but also, with those that you support as part of your work.
This is particularly relevant through my work supporting the Marlborough Chamber of Commerce Throughout Lockdown the Chamber has been keeping a presence and has kept in touch with the local business community by Newsletter and via normal social media channels. In addition, there was the opportunity for a call with our local MP who was holding a call for businesses in the local area.
One particularly aspect of my work in supporting the local community, is the organisation of events for the Chamber. Just prior to Lockdown we held an extremely successful Recruitment Event for the local business community with four different speakers from an HR business background, an Employment Lawyer, a speaker on Employee Retention and two representatives from a global recruitment company. The aim behind the event was to help local businesses with recruitment and employee retention.
The organisation of the event and contact with the local businesses I found extremely rewarding. Not only from the practical side of things, but the whole concept from the initial idea, planning, logistics, communication with the attendees and hosting the event and knowing that it was well received from those attending.
Now with Lockdown easing and more businesses starting to open again in the community, it is important for support to be there for those businesses. Things will no doubt be different for everyone in some way or another, but Witts End Business Services will be here to help and support any business owner who needs assistance.
Please do get in touch if I can be of any help or assistance moving forward.
