Friday Brief Intro 08/10/2021

Good afternoon and welcome to this week’s Friday Brief. We hope you’ve had a successful first week of October!

Many of you will have seen the MTA team at EMO Milan 2021 was this week. Following the EMO Milan 2021 Press Conference, we they have published their official press release titled: "The Road Ahead: A brighter tomorrow for the MT industry". The press release points towards an optimistic scenario for the recovery of the MT sector. Find out more in the story and distribute the press release.

This is your last chance to book a slot for our Annual Golf Day that takes place next Thursday on the 14th October. You can find a link to book and details on our website, just follow the link in the story.

Sunday 10th October marks World Mental Health Day. To help business owners support employee mental wellbeing, the experts of our partner, MTA Associate Member Citation have put together a free guide to managing team wellbeing. Check out what they have put together below.

British businesses exporting to Europe will now be able to access one-to-one advice via a new phone and online service launched today. To follow the Department Of International Trade’s guidance please read the press release and see how they can help you.

Business psychologist, Alan Bradshaw, looks at what managers need to know and do to manage risks to mental wellbeing in a post-Covid workplace. There is a free webinar available where he'll discuss the mental health impact of Covid on managers and employees and the training managers now need to enable them to manage risks effectively. Some key points included can be found in the story.

A new project has been set up by the 'AFM Cluster' called PLAN RENOVE to encourage and support the investments made by industrial SMEs for the acquisition of new machines, tools and industrial additive manufacturing equipment for companies that are not in bad debt until 2020. This year the government was able to contribute €50,000,000 to this Project. If your company sells machinery to Spain, please check out the story.

This week BSI have two standards for you. One on requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of information security management systems and the other on security techniques — Competence requirements for information security testers and evaluators. You can find these in one story.

It has been a quiet week for economic news but we have rounded up the PMI data that was released at the end of last week after our Friday Brief was released.  The global index was unchanged from the August reading, with a majority of countries in positive territory, led by Europe which had nine of the top ten PMI readings for September.  We will bring a deeper round-up of the economic data that was released at EMO next week but a Key Figures document for the European machine tool industry was published by CECIMO and we have this available for you to download.

Also this week, a reminder about the MTA Forecast Seminar which is taking place as an in-person event on Thursday 21st October.  There has already been a good number of bookings but we have a large room so there is still room for more to attend while providing space to spread out a little.

The MTA Business Survey for September is still running so, with thanks to those who have responded, we would like to encourage all members to participate in this survey - the on-line form is available at www.mta.org.uk/mta-business-survey-sep21.

Thank you for reading this week's MTA Friday Brief! We hope you have a lovely weekend!
