We’re supporting some important research to find out how the hospitality sector is being affected by Brexit. Restaurants and other hospitality businesses are among the major employers in the borough and tell us that there are urgent concerns around recruitment, retention and skills shortages.
The boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Wandsworth have therefore, commissioned some research to find out whether a dedicated new business-led training facility will help. We are urging Tulse Hill & West Norwood businesses to respond to the survey here.
Alternatively we can put you in touch with the researchers, who can conduct a telephone or face-to-face interview. They will also be arranging a couple of focus groups in which businesses can get together and discuss the problems with the researches, to feed into the results of the study. Any questions about the research can be directed to Ben Stephenson, BAS Consultancy, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 07976 92 32 62.

Data Advice for Businesses
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport have issued the following lines that you may find useful to communicate to businesses in your area:
Act now to keep receiving personal data from the EU
If your business or organisation receives personal data from partners or suppliers in the EU or EEA countries you must act now to ensure you can still do so legally after Brexit. Personal data is any information that can be used to identify someone, this could include a customer’s name, physical or IP addresses, or HR data such as staff working hours and payroll details. To continue receiving personal data legally after Brexit can be as simple as adding a new clause into your supplier contracts.
