We are pleased to present LBMC’s sixth-annual national Business Outlook Report. This report offers insight into business trends, challenges, growth opportunities and the economic outlook for the U.S. with some additional details on four industries.

Not surprisingly, business leaders from all industries continue to note that talent issues, supply chain and inflation concerns are their biggest challenges. Additionally, we continue to hear that cyber risks, ESG initiatives and digital transformation are becoming more prevalent in many industries, specifically larger and public company spaces.

Our goal is to deliver perspectives into the business landscape from the last 12 months and insights on what companies are doing to address challenges as they look toward 2023.

We believe that knowledge is powerful for leaders as they navigate current trends. The team of experts at LBMC wants to partner with you to address and mitigate these challenges. Through timely insights and your LBMC team, you can pursue the opportunities that matter most to you and your businesses. As always, our goal is to deliver services, results that help individuals, businesses and ultimately communities thrive.

LBMC’s team stands ready to address the conclusions in this report and how they may impact your business in the coming year. And as always we appreciate the opportunity to make individuals, businesses and the communities we serve better.
