SFA E-zine - The Tuesday Edition
Welcome to this week's SFA e-zine.
In this edition we announce the finalists in the SFA National Small Business Awards 2019, congratulations to all those small businesses. We are also pleased to announce that Sue O’Neill has been re-elected as SFA Chair by the SFA National Council.
We highlight the importance of a written contract of employment and the Employment (Misc. Provisions) Bill and seek your views on the rising cost(s) of motor insurance. We link to the Christmas Retail Monitor which shows the average household to spend over €2,690 in shops at Christmas this year.
Book a place at the next SFA webinar on 11 December focusing on the characteristics of successful retailers. Don't miss your chance to join us at the SFA Members Christmas Evening taking place on 13 December. Also register to attend Business Bytes on 9 January which will discuss workplace health and well-being. 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.
