THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar is bringing together policymakers and stakeholders to examine latest thinking on increasing productivity in the UK economy - looking at policy priorities for supporting businesses, the education sector and individuals in the workforce.
It will be an opportunity to discuss key themes emerging from the Government’s Business Productivity Review, which aims to improve understanding of high and low productivity businesses, as well as the market in which interventions operate.
Delegates will discuss practical steps that might be taken by employers, and the seminar will bring out cases studies on initiatives that are proving effective in improving business practices, and how businesses are planning for the impact of Brexit.
Attendees will also consider what more might be done to enhance leadership, management and performance measurement; as well as examining developments in innovation and technology that are being explored as ways to boost UK productivity.
Further sessions focus on skills - looking at plans to establish a National Retraining Scheme, challenges for improving the take-up of technical education and STEM subjects, and the potential for business support services to improve employee expertise.
