What is the Financial Stress Score?
The D&B Financial Stress Score provides predictive insights of the businesses that are most likely to fail within the next 12-18 months.
Financial Stress Scores are categorized as Low, Medium or High.
- Companies with Low Financial Stress Scores are good candidates for strategic partnerships and expansion leaning incentives.
- Businesses in the Medium category are prime candidates for proactive outreach.
- Often, employers in the High category have already had a layoff event or are starting to take steps to close operations, resulting in a need for Rapid Response or Rapid Re-employment engagement.
When used in combination, the D&B Financial Stress and Material Change Scores can help WDB teams understand the current trajectory as well as the future outlook of businesses in their region.
