Action for jobs: how to get the UK working

This report is based on the outcome of extensive discussion over the summer 2011 with businesses, individuals, leading academics and third sector bodies following the publication of 'Mapping the route to growth'.

It aimed to establish the steps that could be taken to ensure barriers to employment are broken down.

This has included focus groups, written evidence from over 100 bodies, meetings with more than 100 firms and discussions with all of the CBI’s regional and national councils. The project was steered by a group of business and academic leaders, chaired by Ken McMeikan, Greggs CEO and chair of CBI North-East Regional Council.
