The Challenge

Running a small business requires decision-makers to wear several hats. On top of day-to-day jobs, they can deal with marketing, HR, accounts, sales – not to mention the technology.

Busy boss

For around two out of every five employees in the report, the business leader was the one responsible for delivering staff IT training.

Specialist help
