Feeling positive

The year ahead is an exciting time for businesses in every corner of Lancashire, as private and public sector investments combine to create the ideal conditions to grow our county’s enterprise and skills portfolio.

In addition to new commercial property being developed throughout the county, we are also seeing residential and leisure developments designed to cater for a changing population.

We see opportunities for business growth encompass multiple industry sectors and it is encouraging to hear our clients tell us that they are feeling positive about the possibilities of the year ahead.

Undoubtedly, there will still be some uncertainty over Brexit, which continues to bring challenges. From feedback we hear from businesses across the region, however, we know that many have been planning for various scenarios.

As our local economy grows, businesses must continue to invest in people and in developing the right skills for the future - in whatever industry.

Here at Napthens we are planning for future growth - a key part of that is through investment in our people and recruitment to meet our clients’ evolving needs and demand for specialist services at a local level. 

2020 should provide some interesting opportunities for businesses across the county.

Regardless of the political landscape, with the positive, pragmatic and forward-thinking attitude of Lancashire’s business community, 2020 should provide some interesting opportunities for businesses across the county.
