BITC Scotland logo
For the 2016 Holyrood Elections, BITC Scotland identified five areas which need to be tackled in order to create a National Action Plan, and assessed each political party's policies against them.


The five areas against which the Scorecard assesses are:

  • Ensure that age, gender, race and health do not limit an employee’s engagement and success in the workplace.
  • Design smart ways to generate wealth so that our economy becomes regenerative, ensuring future business success.
  • Prevent social background predicting a young person's success at school and beyond.
  • Help people overcome disadvantage by increasing access to good, sustainable employment.
  • Create jobs and vibrant communities by supporting small local businesses.
