The UK labour market has undergone significant change in the last decade and we believe this will only accelerate over the next few years.
The REC feels strongly that the UK’s dynamic labour market is a real competitive advantage and must be nurtured and protected. To explore this, we invited a group of labour market experts to contribute to a book of essays about how we can achieve our important ambition.
This has resulted in our latest piece of research: 'Building the best jobs market in the world: the expert view'. We have 24 high profile contributors including economists, trade unionists, academics, members of the House of Lords and business leaders.
Each expert has their own particular vantage point on our economy and labour market and some do not agree with our views or with each other, but this helps make stimulating reading and discussion on the critical challenges that lay ahead. With the general election and a new government so near, this debate is more important than ever.
