HIE Business Panel Survey - 2017

The Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) Business Panel is a group of businesses and social enterprises from across the region who have agreed to take part in regular surveys for HIE. Each survey includes core questions on economic optimism, business performance and growth aspirations, and also explores relevant topical issues.

The surveys help HIE monitor business confidence and economic optimism and identify challenges or opportunities that are currently presenting themselves across the region. As panel membership is representative of the Highlands and Islands business population, it provides a strong evidence base that facilitates robust regional, sub-regional and sectoral analysis.  

Panel surveys are undertaken by Ipsos MORI on behalf of HIE.  The latest report, published in October 2017, presents findings from the survey carried out in July and August 2017.
