The logo for Breathe's learning tool called "Breathe Learn". This tool is full of training courses for your employees development needs.

With  many  teams working remotely or hybrid working, some SMEs may find it challenging to stay compliant and keep their employees engaged.      

And with the financial effects of the last few years forcing small businesses to cut budgets, learning and development – in many cases – has unfortunately taken a back seat.  

But there’s a big silver lining: many SMEs have now realised the importance of learning and development and are changing the way they operate.

According to research, 50% of businesses have now taken their training online - a big increase from just 15% before the pandemic hit.     

Find out how Breathe's Learn module can help upskill & provide training for SME employees.
