Employment and Skills

Business in the Community (BITC) enables businesses to create the conditions for every person to achieve a successful and rewarding working life. To achieve this, business needs to consider how they prepare people for the workplace through education and ensure they are creating good jobs that are accessible to all.

There are two strands to BITC’s employment and skills work. Education, where BITC supports organisations to help people transition into the jobs of the future; and inclusive employment and good work, with BITC working with businesses to ensure good jobs are accessible to all; increasing levels of pay and ensuring good terms and conditions of all employment.

Find out more about Business in the Community’s work on employment and skills.

Employment and Skills sit under Healthy Communities, one part of BITC’s Responsible Business MapTM, which guides our members on a journey of continuous improvement, working across the responsible business agenda.

Business in the Community is a network of progressive businesses that look beyond the profit motive, who want to make a difference within society and who are prepared to collaborate to bring about change.
