Escape's take on Be the Business

The UK lags behind comparable nations in terms of productivity. But, by improving the performance of small business leaders, Be The Business have stepped up to improve the UK’s position overall – and with that, everyone benefits. They work with some of the UK’s most successful businesses to provide small business leaders with the support, resources, and guidance they need to improve their productivity. A hybrid team, offering part time roles, 4 day weeks and compressed hours. We’re also reliably informed that their team retreats are fun-filled affairs. Sounds like a pretty great place to work to us!
