As a member you will want access to many business and management resources, from infomation to advice & guidance, in order to be able to improve and succeed. We have separated access to resources into what we consider appropriate channels. These channels overlap in their provision so should not really be looked at in isolation

As tax and financial management changes constantly, it’s important to have access to real time information, accounting and tax planning advice and resources. We help our members in adopting and using simple and sensible financial management procedures and the optional use of online tools, apps and software one can get ahead of and stay on top of one’s fiscal duties and responsibilities, compliantly and quickly.

welfare & wellbeing in the workplace
Well-being and stress management issues are within the overall ‘duty of care’ that an employer owes to its employees. From an organizational management angle, wellbeing is a major factor in quality, performance, productivity and therefore business effectiveness and profit. Where a person’s wellbeing reduces, so typically does his or her performance and effectiveness. Across a team or entire organization, many key organizational performance factors can be negatively impacted by mismanagement of these issues. Understand and make a difference.
The Peer Support Network
Staying one step ahead of your customers and competitors, and still working cost effectively is what everyone is striving for in business today, which is why we all need continuous improvement hence the importance of CPD . The Peer Support Network (PSN) enables this through, as it says in the name, a network of peers providing support to and receiving support from their peers – other members – all in business and management.
