Welsh Government launches fresh campaign to support businesses through pandemic


The Welsh Government has launched a new campaign to promote the support available to businesses to help them deal with the continued pressures of coronavirus and plan for the future ahead.

The ‘We’re in Your Corner’ campaign will encourage firms across the country to take advantage of the skills and employment advice and guidance that is on offer through the Skills Gateway for Business online portal.

Support includes assistance with developing the capabilities of staff to advice with recruitment and training programmes.

Economy Minister Ken Skates said the ‘We’re in Your Corner’ campaign is “crucial” in supporting Welsh Government’s Economic Resilience and Reconstruction Mission, which was launched last week and aims to reconstruct and rebuild the Welsh economy.

He added: “We are firmly in the corner of businesses and this campaign will be crucial in ensuring they are aware of the support that is available to help them meet the challenges and opportunities that today and tomorrow present.

“Our covid commitment will also provide free and subsidised training which will enable firms to develop the skills of the workforce and our Business Wales advisers are on hand to provide expert advice on this to meet individual business needs.

“As we continue to navigate these difficult and uncertain times, we will continue to do all we can to back our businesses and our people, but we also have to think about what comes next. That is why I have launched our new Economic Resilience and Reconstruction Mission which offers optimism for the future and will help our people, businesses and communities to succeed and flourish in a more prosperous, fairer and greener economy.”
