Take That Leap Now: Digitising Small Businesses

2024 - We are almost at the end of the first quarter of the year! Now is a suitable time to reevaluate how small and medium-sized businesses are “feeling” about the economy.

Malaysian SMEs enter 2024 with a mix of optimism and caution. A recent report by Employment Hero found that an impressive 79% of SMEs are confident about their own growth prospects, despite concerns about rising costs and inflation. This sentiment reflects a sense of resilience after challenging years, with many businesses looking forward to new opportunities.

To gain a deeper understanding of these trends, this episode of Enterprise Explores delves into the findings of the 2024 SME Sentiments Report by Employment Hero with Kevin Fitzgerald, the Managing Director for Asia at Employment Hero.
