National Seeing is Believing visit: Inspiring tomorrow’s workforce for a sustainable future

Date:

Time: to

Venue: 
Birmingham

Visit led by: Mike Wright, Executive Director, Jaguar Land Rover

There is a great need for companies to go beyond conventional corporate responsibility programmes and instead, place sustainability at the heart of business strategies and product and service innovation. Scaling innovation and introducing new consumption models can improve competitiveness, grow revenues and better address changing customer needs.

By combining innovative resource recovery processes, procurement and logistical operations for the recycling of aluminium, Jaguar Land Rover has created a compelling business case for this circular business model. To continue these environmental innovations and ensure the continued growth of the business, Jaguar Land Rover needs a pool of talented people with engineering and technical skills.

The CBI annual skills report identified 42% of employers as having difficulties in recruiting STEM-skilled employees. With over a million young people currently classed as NEET (not in education, employment or training), there is a devastating effect on local economies and communities.

I would be delighted if you would join me along with a select group of UK business leaders to see first-hand the shared value of engaging in the skills agenda to inspire tomorrow’s workforce and deliver environmental innovation for a sustainable future.

After the visit, we ask each delegate to reflect on what they have seen and to take action within their business. Participants are supported by the BITC team in turning their experience into practical action, benefiting both business and society.
