Levelling up white paper strategic briefing

10 February 2022

This webinar took place on Wednesday 09 February 2022 and is now available on-demand.


The levelling up white paper sets out a set of 12 priority ‘missions’ to be pursued by national and local government in the years to come.

With measures covering regeneration, communities, connectivity, education, R&D, employment and health – there’ll be very few organisations not impacted by the proposals.

Embracing a broad ‘system thinking’ approach to ‘levelling up’, the paper sets out a vision for the future of local government - with increased devolution creating more autonomous regional economies.

While we wait for more detail on the legislation, regulation, plans and proposals connected with each ‘mission’ join us as we launch our own response to the programme. In this on-demand webinar we have taken a helicopter view of the proposals, looked at their impact on key sectors and discussed the manner in which they fit within the broader levelling up context.

Is it hot in here, or is it just me?

Whilst the weather conditions are predicted to be cooling down this week, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is asking employers and businesses to consider adapting to recurrent warmer weather conditions for the safety and benefit of their staff. It asks employers to ensure that extreme heat becomes a firm part of longer term risk management. Climate change in any event is something all businesses will need to consider as the warmer weather becomes more frequent - extreme heat is something that will impact employers on a day to day basis.
