CMI comments on Good Work: The Taylor review of modern working practices

Ann Francke, chief executive of the Chartered Management Institute, commented on the Taylor review:

Taylor’s welcome recommendations drive home the need for better management to transform the workplace and UK plc. It’s great to see that Taylor’s principles also highlight the need to improve employee training, engagement and sense of purpose at work.
Businesses rather than additional regulation should be responsible for creating fairer and more productive workplaces. The launch of Taylor’s review on the same day as the Productivity Leadership Group’s ‘Be The Business’ campaign shows the growing recognition that professionalising management will go a long way to solving the UK’s stubborn productivity puzzle.
