Employment is one of the most significant ways that business can contribute to the livelihoods of individuals and communities, and for many individuals it offers the only sustainable route out of poverty.
BITC’s first ever Employment Summit aims to celebrate some great examples of responsible business practice and highlight the opportunities that exist to improve the way businesses inspire, hire and grow a diverse talent base.
