We’re proud to support #KeepBritainWorking.
The campaign, which is being backed by business leaders across the UK, was set up to help us navigate the ever-changing world of work. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, and beyond.
Here are some more details on #KeepBritainWorking – and what you can do to get involved:
What is #KeepBritainWorking?
The objective of the Keep Britain Working campaign is simple: to help preserve jobs and to protect livelihoods.
That means connecting businesses with a growing demand for workers with those who may have been furloughed or been made redundant from other roles.
It also means giving the UK workforce a voice when it comes to suggesting the best ways to deal with the coronavirus crisis. Both in terms of sharing ideas, and getting them in front of some of the biggest businesses in the UK.
So whether you’re currently looking for work, or simply seeking ways to keep your company going throughout these uncertain times, we’re here to help.
Who is supporting the #KeepBritainWorking campaign?
#KeepBritainWorking was co-founded by James Reed, Chairman and CEO of the REED group.
The campaign has already been backed by a number of businesses and their leaders. Some of the top names include James Timpson and Lord Alan Sugar, politicians Rt Hon Penny Mourdant MP and Rt Hon Caroline Nokes MP as well as industry bodies like the CBI and Recruitment & Employment Confederation.
James Reed launched a similar campaign following the financial crisis of 2008/9.
