This conference focuses on next steps for improving productivity within UK businesses at a time of significant policy development.
It is timed as the Government finalises the findings from its review into UK business productivity as part of the Industrial Strategy and following the Budget announcement of the expansion of the National Productivity Investment Fund.
Delegates will discuss what is needed from investment policy to effectively target support to critical areas such as housing, transport, digital infrastructure and R&D.
We also expect discussion on tailoring local industrial strategies to increasing productivity levels across different regions of the UK through initiatives such as business support hubs, and focused support for high-value entrepreneurs and start-ups.
The agenda will include discussion on raising firm-level productivity, and in particular how employers can develop the skills and support the training for business - including improving leadership and management within organisations.
Delegates will also assess how the introduction of the new generation of Higher T-level technical qualifications at level 4 and 5 might best be implemented to address the UK’s skills shortages and will consider strategies to improve access to and increase the uptake of STEM skills.
