Episode 33

On this episode of Spotlight, we focus on productivity as well as the issue of skills and training policy.

Graeme Roy talks to Professor Bart Van Ark, the Managing Director of the UK Productivity Institute, about why productivity is important and what the latest work of the Institute is telling us about productivity in the UK and beyond.

He then chats to Professor Mel Simms, Dean of Research in the College of Social Sciences at the University of Glasgow and Professor of Work and Employment in the Adam Smith Business School about social dialogue i.e. how workers and employers’ representative organisations discuss and negotiate issues around work, employment and the economy.
