Business services has had a positive impact on the region's economic growth and stability as a result of collaborative working between public and private sectors.
HIE has forged a productive, proactive and forward-thinking relationship with business services providers. We see the Highlands and Islands as an exceptional location where companies can achieve stability and success within a supportive business environment that fosters innovation and encourages growth and development.
HIE not only recognises the strong regional contribution of the business services sectors, but also its considerable future potential, given continuous investment.
HIE appoints dedicated Account Managers to key accounts to provide intensive support under the Account Management programme.
The Account Manager's role is to support the company on an on-going-basis providing advice and assistance and acting as a facilitator to other business development services available from within HIE and other organisations.
This could include access to a range of support from organisations such as Skills Development Scotland, Job Centre Plus, UHI, Training Providers, Chamber of Commerce and high calibre recruitment agencies.
