Watch back previous Employee Voice Hub events Ethnicity Pay Reporting Hub event At this month's Hub event, Duncan Brown, an independent government and employer adviser and researcher discussed the ethnicity pay gap, why it is still voluntary and what organisations need to do now to make it mandatory. Employment Relations Hub event In January's hub event we discussed how the UK is experiencing serious staff shortages in many parts of the labour market which may increase the potential bargaining power of the employees in these sectors for higher pay and better conditions. We also discussed the power balance between employees and employers and how it is shifting against the backdrop of the growing challenge of recruiting and retaining staff. Just Transition Hub event IPA presented some key findings from Patrick Briône's research report “Just Transition – Remembering the UK Workforce in the push for Net Zero”. We examined the potential implications of the UK’s commitments to net zero emissions by 2050.
