As a business leader, what will you do to make boosting productivity in your company with a one per cent improvement in 2017 happen?
Picture care workers, cleaners and catering staff. These traditional women’s jobs have the unenviable distinction of being three of the lowest paid jobs in the UK – typically well below £10 per hour. And that’s a big problem – particularly in the adult social care sector, where attracting the very best is important to deliver quality of care.
Two thirds of those earning low pay across the UK are women, as they primarily work in low paying occupations and sectors, and make up 77.5 per cent of part-time employees. The UKCES competitive fund hopes to solve the problem.
