In the first OPINAIA LAB edition, a cycle of webinars dedicated to the dissemination of our main studies, we decided to present and relaunch the SME Thermometer. Originated in late 2016 in conjunction with the federal Ministry of Production, the Thermometer is an online opinion panel between owners and managers of micro, small and medium-sized companies in our country. The research goal is to generate an evolutionary diagnosis of the general situation of SMEs, investigating evaluations, needs and expectations over time.

The question we asked ourselves this time was: how are SMEs today in this context of pandemic and isolation? This first part of the year presents a non favorable scenario for small and medium-sized companies: the coronavirus and quarantine strongly resented an economy that had already been hit. With nuances, markedly negative values ​​are registered in the main Thermometer’s indicators: the evaluation of companies’ economic situation, the variation and expectations in the sales volumes, investment planning, and the nation’s general conditions. As one of the panelists surveyed states: “Lack of activity means that work has been reduced.

The inflation of the past 12 months and the delay of payments were de-financing my company. Quarantine is leading us to be in the red ”. We invite you then to watch the webinar where the main results of the latest Pyme Thermometer’s edition is broadcasted. Thank you!
