The Hertfordshire Business Growth Services You Need to Know About
At gpfm, a large part of our work is advising business owners – new and existing – on how they can develop their own companies in meaningful ways, such as choosing which workplace pensions to offer to their employees and running employee benefit schemes that will improve the happiness of their team and improve retention.
That said, if you are a business owner, one of the most important things you need to remember is that you should always take advantage of every available resource at your disposal. By doing so, you’ll increase your productivity and competitiveness. Here are 4 great local services perfect for helping your Hertfordshire business.
Wenta’s aim is to inspire enterprise by helping people local to Hertfordshire to establish their own businesses. Their free Introduction to Self-Employment course is a great place to get practical advice, and answers to questions like:

- Small business legal requirements
- How to source finance
If your business has 5-249 employees, and you’ve been in business for over 2 years, the Hertfordshire Growth Hub can help. They’re a fantastic resource for those businesses looking to access R&D or funding, expand their employee base or develop their products. With expert, free advice, they can certainly be a big help.
Rather than seeing those who do business in the same niche to you as your competitors, treat them as a powerful resource for learning. From collaboration and cooperation comes greater knowledge, and there are plenty of fantastic, already established networks to participate in – from Mums UnLtd, a business network for mums looking to start their own companies, to Elysian, a network for alternative and complementary therapists.
