Business News has one aim - to be the first choice for information about commerce and industry in our great state.
To achieve this requires significant resources, a commitment to deliver quality news and an understanding of what you, the reader, really wants.
That is why we have put together a team of reporters, columnists and regular contributors offering the widest coverage of WA business of any media – not to mention extensive information lists sourced from business and government across the state.
Quality in news means delivering more up-to-date and better-researched information, so that every story helps your understanding of the WA market and aids you in making business decisions. Quality reporting also means asking hard questions. That is why you won’t find us compromising our editorial independence.
Our readers are our number one priority and we try hard to understand your needs in order to improve the value of what we offer. That requires market research, the drive to get out among the business community and the ability to listen.
What we hear is:
- How tough it is to find news about WA’s business community – so we focus our attention on finding local news;
- That it is hard to keep up with everything – so we present our news in easy-to-digest formats, such as our daily emails in the morning and afternoon, our print publication delivered to your home or office and our annual Lists publication. That is backed up by this state-of-the-art website for our subscribers which offers fresh news, an extensive archive and relevant data on people and companies that operate in WA.
- There is a lack of vocal, independent support for local business issues – so we aim to be ambassadors for the business community, representing you on matters of importance; and
- We should celebrate success – so we look for good news stories offering achievements we can all learn from and find motivating. We do that through case studies recognising innovators, success stories and winners of awards, including our own extensive programs such as 40under40 and Rising Stars Awards.
