Research support for business leadership on productivity

IES has been commissioned in partnership with SQW, IER and Cambridge Econometrics to provide research support to the UK Commission for Employment and Skills in helping a group of business leaders in a variety of sectors tackle productivity issues that constrain economic growth.

The research will contribute to the Government’s work as part of its UK Productivity Plan launched in July 2015 and will report to the Treasury and Business Secretary in early 2016.
