Work Matters 2022: Back on track?
Personal finances are being stretched to breaking point in early 2022, as the UK registers the largest fall in living standards on record as inflation outpaces wage growth.
With 87% of UK adults reporting their living costs rose in March 2022 and with prices continuing to rise, how can the Government and employers support workers through the crisis?
Employment levels have returned to pre-pandemic levels, but the shadow of inflation and a possible recession loom large. Will the Government us the Queen’s Speech to get back on track to achieve its aim of a 'high-wage, high-skill economy'?
Join the Work Foundation and a panel of experts to review the labour market statistics from the Office for National Statistics and the Queen’s Speech, and what it means for workers, businesses and communities.
