Latest news

  • Making work betterIn this article, Paul Hackett, Director of the Smith Institute highlights the findings of their recent report 'Making work better: an agenda for government.' Authored by Ed Sweeney, the report examines the state of the British labour market, and the changes that need to take place to make work both more productive and more fulfilling. As well as improving the quality of management, he argues that we need to build a sense of 'workplace citizenship' with a stronger voice for employees in the UK.
  • What's the value of business to the UK?Trust in business has taken quite a knocking in recent years. The shock of the recession and a series of high profile scandals have undermined public confidence. In this article Andy Bagnall, Director of Campaigns at the CBI, explains why we need a Great Business Debate, and calls on people to get involved and have their say.
  • News in Brief - October 2014All the latest news from the world of employee engagement and industrial relations.
  • Common rights in a single market? The EU and rights at work in the UKThe debate over Britain's role within the European Union continues to rumble on. Few issues incite the fury of Eurosceptics more than the EU's influence over employment regulation in the UK. In this article, Nita Clarke the Director of the IPA highlights the findings of new IPA research on the EU and rights at work in the UK. She argues that the EU has been fundamental in strengthening workplace rights, but refutes the claim that British businesses are drowning in EU red tape.
  • Democracy in the workplace - An idea whose time has come?The Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations were seen as an opportunity to strengthen involvement and engagement at work. But it is fair to say that their impact has been more limited than many of us had hoped. In this article, Tim Page of the TUC summarises their recent research on information and consultation. He explains the limitations of the ICE regs in the UK, looks at how they work elsewhere in the EU, and draws some lessons as to how we might improve them.
