Business Compass - articles, events and advice - simply all in one place.

Business Compass

Business Comply is like many small businesses in having to rethink its future, while looking after its existing members. We are asking a few questions about what could help organisations and their people in the future, in the context of a different workplace for many after Covid.

To give context we want to understand:

  • first, how management style may fundamentally change with the workplace.
  • second, how technology may further impact employment in the workplace.

By way of a benefit. For historic reasons we have access to considerable management culture research from the 1990’s, giving a benchmark to look at the predictions made then, and the future trajectory from now, for how management culture might evolve. This should be published in the September.

You can link to the survey questions soon from here.

Cyber Essentials – is an important independent scheme for demonstrating cyber assurance and business trust, suited to MSME organisations.  Business Comply has committed to, and begun the process of, embedding the new Cyber Essentials assessment scheme ready for participants for 2021.

About Us

2020 saw the Covid crisis and rapid shift to Trusted Colleague services for business turn-round and protection.

The first outcome has been the new CARE programme for corporate’ and their MSME supply chains, built with the Change Corporation in the UK. We can now help MSME themselves through online sessions and discussion groups and cohort on our new platform.

2019 saw us as an independent company to deliver radically different ways of doing things compliance, just for MSME.

In 2018 the first subscribers group worked well in real world situations using our partner’s enterprise platform BusinessOptix.  What followed was a second and parallel  platform that met the simplified needs of delivery to Micro and Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (MSME) users.  With a new vision of how to do it differently with processes and methods to match, we now provide compliance support to MSME.  Our methods draw upon working with major enterprises, meaning the MSME gets the same quality of guidance through a self-help format of delivery.

Business Comply was set up in 2017 with Fusion Experience Limited to address the need for regulatory and contractual compliance services.  Research with Gartner and prospective businesses, it became clear that smaller businesses got a rough deal by having to comply without the resources to do the job.
