Championing and informing local business
The Chamber policy team exists to research business views, inform businesses of key policy decisions, legislative changes and opportunities that might impact them, and act as the voice of local business, engaging stakeholders on behalf of our members. Our priorities are determined by business, for business, with the support of the Chamber Council, an elected group of representatives from across Birmingham Chamber membership, and other divisional Chamber committees.
The trusted voice of local business since 1813, the Chamber policy team undertakes regular research to produce up to date snapshots of the local economy, and insights and analysis on the opportunities and challenges facing the region.
To support local businesses, the Chamber policy team deliver a number of focussed campaigns throughout the year, which provide a platform to showcase local expertise, facilitate peer to peer learning and share best-practice among the local business community.
Our Growth Through People campaign aims to help local firms boost productivity by adopting new, best-practice approaches to leadership and people management.
The Chamber’s Sustainable Business Series aims to share knowledge, best practice and guidance to enable local firms to reduce their environmental impact.
The Chamber's Future in Technology campaign aims to support local businesses in maximising opportunities related to technological development and digital access.
As part of our role informing businesses of key policy decisions, legislative changes and opportunities which may impact them, the policy team produce regular briefings, translating what the latest policy developments mean for local firms.
