The Employment & Skills Leadership Team's vision is an inclusive labour market where everyone, regardless of their background or experience, has access to good quality employment.
The Employment & Skills Leadership Team drives the over-arching strategy for the employment and skills issue across BITC, and has to date lead a priority work stream focused on young people.
Business in the Community’s report A Brave New World highlights that the workplace is changing rapidly as well as the skills people will need in the emerging digital era. As a result the Leadership Team is currently looking at how business leaders plan for a digital transformation which is responsible and inclusive. Through this work they aim to promote a simple and more effective conversation on skills which will
- Enable educators, business leaders, practitioners, line managers, employees and parents to talk about skills more frequently, confidently and simply
- Overcome confusion around skills which is leading to lack of engagement and paralysis in adapting and learning to the changing nature of work
- Help employers recruit and train differently in a way that is more accessible for people to transfer across industries and roles in the future
