HIE Business Panel survey 2018

The Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) Business Panel was established to measure and monitor the economic health of the region through the experiences and opinions of businesses and social enterprises in the area, and to explore topical issues at a regional, sub-regional or sectoral level.

Following two waves of panel surveys in 2014 and 2015, HIE commissioned Ipsos MORI to carry out regular business panel surveys with 1,000 businesses and social enterprises, representative of the Highlands and Islands business base in terms of geographic area, organisation size and sector. The surveys ran quarterly during 2016 and 2017, before changing to three times per year in 2018.

This report presents findings from the most recent wave of the survey (the tenth overall) carried out in June 2018. The survey covered a number of topics of general interest to business, including economic optimism and business performance, prospects, challenges and workforce issues.
