In our recent whitepaper we raised some questions around the shocking announcement that there is currently over £1.28 billion of unspent Levy funds – asking why businesses aren’t using the funds to bridge the skills gaps appearing in their supply chains by upskilling existing staff using the credits that will be lost to them come May 2019.
That’s why we’re delighted to see the Whitepaper: ‘Tapping into The Great Skills Dividend’ has been published in the latest edition of UKWA’ s Warehouse Magazine, providing a thorough overview of the current Levy landscape including professional insights from Tony Burley (Logistics Director at boohoo), Sue Bancroft (Head of Employee Relations at NFT) and Business Transformation and Operational Improvement expert Sue Byrne.
With additional comments from our CEO Andy Kaye, and Bis Henderson Academy’s Managing Director David Lynch, the piece digs a little deeper into why businesses aren’t utilising the funds available to them and discusses the full scope of people development as part of a wider talent strategy.
