Chartered Management Institute responds to publication of Levelling Up White Paper
Commenting on the Government’s Levelling Up White Paper released today, CEO of the Chartered Management Institute, Ann Francke, said:
“It's good to see the Government recognising that levelling up is as much about people as it is about places. Unless people have the right skills to do their jobs, local businesses won't grow, areas won't regenerate and productivity won't improve.”
“It’s also good to see a commitment to working collaboratively to improve the uptake of productivity-enhancing technologies and management practises by businesses. CMI looks forward to working with stakeholders on this important agenda.
“We are disappointed not to see management education embedded right across the education system. Management and leadership skills are core skills. They ensure people can access high quality employment and thrive in that employment - problem solving, team working and communication, and should be the foundation for the Government's levelling up plans."
