Event description

Description

According to the Office for Budget Responsibility, employment increased by 1.8 million during the last Parliament and the forecast is for a further increase of 1.2 million during this Parliament, which is impressive by historical standards but still poses challenges if we are to reach the Government’s target of ‘full employment’.


This event will explore some of the factors shaping labour demand and labour supply, such as technological change, the barriers to participation faced by groups in the labour market with low employment rates, such as the disabled, as well as the impact of key labour market policies such as the National Living Wage and reform to Apprenticeships.  The aim of the discussion is to develop a clearer understanding of how government, employers and others can help deliver high employment and increased productivity in the UK. 


Speaker:

Peter Cheese - Chief Executive, CIPD

Carolyn Fairbairn - Director General, CBI

Damian Hinds - Minister of State for Employment

Sir Terry Morgan - Chairman of Crossrail
