Help Us Challenge 2014! Date: 21/02/2014

Huddersfield Town has teamed up with Club partners Bond Dickinson and Ask Insight to ‘Challenge 2014’ through a new survey aimed at Yorkshire businesses.

Created by research specialists Ask Insight, the survey has been created in association with Huddersfield Town and one of its latest Club Partners Bond Dickinson; click HERE for full details of that partnership.

The Challenge 2014 survey reflects on the issues that businesses faced during 2013 before exploring the key challenges that Yorkshire firms face this calendar year.

The simple, easy online survey will take just five minutes to complete and for every person that does so before the 24 March 2014 deadline, a donation of £2 will be made to Town’s charity partner the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The data generated from this survey will be analysed and reported on by Town, Ask Insight, and Bond Dickinson. A report synopsis will be made available for all participants upon request and several will subsequently be invited to take part in Challenge 2014 focus groups.

Huddersfield Town Commercial Director Sean Jarvis commented:

“As a Club, we have invested in the development of beneficial relationships and partnerships with other businesses that face very similar challenges.

“Recognising this, we put our heads together with our partners Bond Dickinson and Ask Insight to create a way to open up a dialogue with some of those businesses with the aim of identifying and sharing the real business challenge in 2014. Subsequently we have created the ‘Challenge 2014’ survey.

“This survey differs from other on-line business-focussed questionnaires in that it allows an open, honest, dialogue with fellow businesses – a conversation that encourages businesses to respond in an open and frank manner in confidence.

“It is not a government or public sector survey, but a survey driven with the intention to focus on the challenges that real businesses are facing within their sector.”

Bond Dickinson’s Partner Shiv Sibal commented:

“The British economy is starting to show some encouraging signs of improvement, but this has come with warnings of caution from Chancellor George Osborne and Bank of England’s Governor Mark Carney. Whilst there are considerable reasons to be positive, there remain challenges for businesses across our region. Through this survey we hope to find out and share the key concerns of local businesses. We continually aim to play an active role in the economic growth in our region and support the region’s businesses.

“Being able to partner with Huddersfield Town and Ask Insight on such a survey brings us an opportunity to address the concerns, as well as highlight the challenges and opportunities for our region’s business community.”

Ask Insight’s Susan Kenyon said:

“This light, easy to complete survey only takes 5 minutes to complete, in contrast to many other business surveys. Our aim is for businesses to tell us as it is for them and offer opinions on what we need to do together to overcome the challenges we all face.

“In return we will donate £2 to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance for each completed survey submitted before 24 March 2014.”
