Q2 2021

Contents A note from the Editor... Welcome to the 2021 Q2 edition of SME News Magazine, where we provide you with all of the latest news, announcements, and features about some of the best up-and-coming enterprises around the United Kingdom. Despite a slight delay, it seems that the end of Covid-19 restrictions is finally on the horizon and with it, a return to business as usual. However, the question is, what will the new ‘business as usual’ look like? From the debate of work-from-home versus the office environment to the growing conversation around the importance of physical and mental health, it is clear that the months of Covid-19 have accelerated an evolution in the workplace. In this quarter’s issue of SME News, we find out how many UK businesses are adapting accordingly. For Jargon PR, this issue’s featured company, the last twelve months have brought about a great deal of change, much of it motivated by the firm’s dedication to a focus on corporate social responsibility. We find out more about the introduction of its sustainability, diversity and inclusion, and staff wellbeing initiatives, following its recognition as Best Corporate and Technology PR Agency. As we enter the second half of 2021, we look forward to bringing you even more success stories of companies from across the UK as they find their feet once again after an unprecedented 18 months. As ever, we wish you all the best for the months ahead and look forward to welcoming you back in the Q3 issue of SME News. Alex Abraham | Editor 4. News 6.
