Joint Resolution Foundation and CBI Labour Market Conference
Britain’s labour market is at a crossroads, with Brexit, globalisation and the march of technology set to fundamentally change the world of work over the coming years. Planning for these changes should be top of the new government and British businesses’ to do list.
What will Brexit really mean for native and migrant workers, and the firms that employ them? Should we be concerned about the growing gig economy and the rise of the robots? Does the National Living Wage mean the era of cheap labour is coming to an end?
The Resolution Foundation and the CBI jointly hosted a half-day conference in Westminster with leading employers, economists and policy makers to discuss the big labour market issues facing Britain and how to shape its post-Brexit future.
