How Has The Pandemic Impacted SME Business Development? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Updated: Jun 6, 2022

Over the past 12 months, the Coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the world economy and severely damaged all manner of businesses and organisations large and small.

Here in the UK, SMEs make up 99.9% of the business population (6.0 million businesses) and with the closures of non-essential businesses and massive shifts in operational processes such as working from home, reduced staff numbers, social distancing procedures and more, many of these SMEs were severely impacted by the pandemic and there are many who haven't recovered.

We wanted to take a look at how these SMEs were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the effect it had on their business development throughout 2020 specifically. So, we reached out to over 200 UK small- and medium-sized businesses to find out how the past year went for their business.

Check out the infographic below to see what we found!
