UK businesses unprepared for mobile devices, says Barclays report

UK online businesses have grown more than 50 times faster than the rest of the economy, according to a report from Barclays, but many remain unprepared for the rise of mobile devices.

The Barclays Online Business Outlook 2013 report highlighted a compound annual growth rate of 11.4 percent over the past three years for the 300 companies surveyed with a strong online presence.  This outpaces the slow growth seen by the wider UK business community, which recorded an average increase of 0.2 percent over the same period.

John Roper, Senior Software Engineer, Pure Storage

I have experienced Richard Wheeler Associates from both perspectives - as a job hunter and an employer looking to find new recruits. Richard really listens and is prepared to spend the time to get to know you. The result is that job hunters are sent roles in great companies that actually fit their skills and requirements and employers get really good candidates that fit the company and role. Either way, this makes the process much more efficient and rewarding.
