SFA E-zine - The Tuesday Edition

Dear Member, 


Welcome to this edition of the SFA e-zine.


This week our Brexit update focuses on advice to member companies with their own transport who may be bringing goods through Irish ports.


Find out how you can save up to 60% of your lighting electricity costs by upgrading to energy efficient lighting with grant support available from SEAI. We detail what is involved in a Workplace Relations Commission inspection and how your business can prepare for it.


Rising insurance costs are one of the biggest cost of doing business issues for our members. In response to this, we have relaunched the SFA Affinity Insurance Scheme in partnership with O’Leary Insurance Group to help you save on your business insurance


Have your say on emerging technologies in our latest survey which will help shape the content of our SFA Smart Business Conference. I am delighted to announce Dr Katherine O'Keeffe, Data Ethicist with Castlebridge, will be speaking at the event. Join us on 2 May to be part of the conversation. 


Ahead of National Wellbeing Day this Friday (12 April), we have launched our Wellness in the Workplace platform in partnership with DeCare Dental on our Grow, Scale, Succeed online platform. As part of our wellness activities on the day, we are also holding a webinar on the future of health in the workplace. 


We still have a few spaces left at our Business Bytes seminar taking place tomorrow (10 April) which will focus on cybersecurity and GDPR one year on, book your place now. Improve leadership and communication skills, learn how to deal with difficult staff and to increase the motivation levels among those in your team on our two day foundations in management course on 17 and 18 April. We also provide a summary of recent press coverage.


As always, we’d love to hear from you about any queries you may have, issues you wish to have raised with Government or other stakeholders and your ideas on how we can improve the business environment for us all. Please contact me on tel: 01 605 1602 or e-mail: sven@sfa.ie or tweet: @SFA_Irl or visit: www.sfa.ie.
