2022 Top Challenges survey

posted on

This member survey conducted in May 2022 provides insight into members’ current and future Top Challenges and business confidence.

Key findings:

  • The biggest challenge facing members’ businesses currently is recruiting and retaining staff.
  • The biggest expected challenge over the next 12 months is also recruiting and retaining staff.

“What are we going to do right now with staff leaving to go overseas for long awaited holidays or leaving NZ to work elsewhere? We can’t replace them, the remaining workforce is shrinking rapidly! It is a serious situation for me as this is happening right now!”

“After labour shortages and labour costs, government legislation, ie Fair Pay, immigration and so on is the next biggest challenge facing us. This government seems anti-small business so it is a very difficult environment to remain optimistic and entrepreneurial.”
