SFA Fortnightly Update

Dear Member, 


Welcome to this edition of the SFA e-zine.


We are delighted to announce that our free business support programme with Skillnet Ireland, MentorsWork, won the Best Coaching/Mentoring Initiative at the Irish Institute of Training and Development Awards 2021 on 23 June. To get involved in this fantastic award-winning initiative, you can book on to one of the upcoming Masterclasses for a sneak peak at what the programme has to offer, or apply for free here.


Read the SFA's call for the fast passage of SCARP (Small Company Administrative Rescue Process) legislation. Be sure to also check out the Quarterly Economic Outlook Q2, as Ibec's economists increase growth forecast for 2021.


The Government announced changes to travel after publishing a roadmap for International Travel, with changes due to come into effect on 19 July. 


Read about the importance of supporting employees following the Ibec survey results which have shown how Covid has catalysed the focus on workplace wellbeing. 


Check out the winners of the inaugural .IE Digital Town Awards 2021. Finally, don't forget to check out our latest 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 our website.
