"While economic challenges are not a new phenomenon, the beginning of 2023 brought additional uncertainty for businesses. Whether it is by retaining the best people, implementing more strategic procurement processes, localising suppliers or maximising data usage, now is the time for competitive companies to take action to protect profitability and make productivity gains."
