It’s very easy for us to forget what a fantastic range of businesses we have in the Channel Islands, from global brands to local entrepreneurs. It’s also easy to dismiss them as profit making machines existing purely as sources of employment or tax. Our CSR feature this month gives just a tiny insight into the work that some of these businesses do for our islands, whether that’s simply providing money to sponsor sports and training initiatives, or allowing staff to help with charity projects; our businesses are very much a part of our island communities.
We have steered clear of that ‘B’ word this month, mainly because no-one has a clue as to what is going to happen next! Our newspapers, Jersey Evening Post and Guernsey Press, will of course keep you informed of all developments.
We have our usual mix of informative features, interesting interviews, thought leadership and news this month, including a subject that is close to my heart – lifelong learning. As we find ourselves working longer in an increasingly digital world, it is essential that all of us embrace continuous learning and new skills to keep ourselves and the businesses we work for, relevant.
