Over half of staff are feeling positive about the way that their employer is handling the recession, according to a poll by the Keep Britain Working Foundation. James Reed, the founder of Keep Britain Working has welcomed the figures, saying that the unprecedented flexibility of the UK workforce, underpinned by positive relationships between staff and bosses, has saved jobs and prevented the unemployment figures from rising even faster.

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is launching a best practice checklist for police officers to use in an effort to prove their commitment to their local business community, warning that ‘recessionary crime’ against business is on the rise. The FSB is urging police forces to listen to the concerns of small businesses. In a new campaign to raise awareness and improve best practice among police officers, the FSB will be issuing a ‘Listening to the Business Beat’ award to the forces around the country that can demonstrate they are listening to the small firms based on their patch.

Thanks for watching!
