Profiles in growth

More than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot has changed for small and medium-sized businesses. Companies are now looking at what they learned and how they can best return to growth. To help with that process, in the coming months, we’re sharing some of our favorite Sage customer profiles, as well as inspiring new video interviews with finance leaders.

A return to growth

Sage recently surveyed more than 1,000 U.S. finance executives about the major issues shaping America’s economic and business landscape. The recent Sage Business Outlook report uncovered how businesses adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic, the key drivers of business growth, and the current strategic outlook for the year ahead and beyond.

In the report, learn how companies across the U.S. not only survived, they readied themselves to build back even stronger by being agile, leveraging technology, and finding new ways to connect with customers, employees, and the community.
