Current Kantar survey: Companies are working on optimising working capital / Inventories in particular should now be reduced
77 percent of the manufacturing companies surveyed consider working capital management to be important in the current market phase (40 percent: very important). The reason: the continuing rise in interest rates and costs. Larger companies with more than 1,000 employees in particular are focusing on optimising their working capital (89 percent; 63 percent of companies with fewer than 1,000 employees). This is the result of a survey conducted by the market research institute Kantar Public on behalf of the management consultancy FTI-Andersch.
