Event Details

Join the Work Foundation and a panel of experts to review the labour market statistics from the Office for National Statistics, and what they mean for levelling-up for workers, businesses and communities across the UK.

As the economy contracts under pressure from rising inflation and energy prices, what is the impact on labour markets across the UK?

In 2019, the Conservative Party were elected on the pledge to 'level-up the UK' and reduce geographical inequality. At the heart of the Government's levelling-up strategy is to boost productivity, pay, jobs and living standards in places and communities previously left behind.

Will the new Prime Minister continue the levelling-up agenda and, during the worst cost of living crisis in living memory, how will they deliver it.

Join the Work Foundation and a panel of experts to review the labour market statistics from the Office for National Statistics, and what they mean for levelling-up for workers, businesses and communities across the UK.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Ben Harrison, Director, Work Foundation
  • Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol
  • Xiaowei Xu, Senior Research Economist, Institute for Fiscal Studies
  • Andrew McPhillips, Chief Economist, The Northern Powerhouse Partnership
