Welcome to this week's edition of our SFA e-zine.
We have some excellent articles for you this week, the first of which is about a new system in place that will allow asylum seekers to work in Ireland as the wait to see if they qualify for international protection.
SFA Assistant Director Linda Barry participated in the National Economic Dialogue last week, bringing to the fore the issues facing our members and the need for a small business strategy from government. You can read the full article to see what she said and contact her at email@example.com to give her your feedback.
Springboard+ is subsidising up to 90% off the cost of higher education courses for employees. If you want to take advantage of this programme we have all the details here.
As part of the SFA affinity scheme, each week we are highlighting some of the amazing offers available to members - this week we have the spotlight on Geo Directory.
Pension policy discussions are heating up and the SFA participated in a conference last week. For more information about this conference, you can read the full article.
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.
