Establishing a new National Centre for Creating Healthy Jobs

IER hosted a meeting at the RSA in London in mid-March on its initiative to establish a new National Centre for Creating Healthy Jobs. The aim of the centre is to minimise the number of jobs that lead to ill-health and increase the number that support good health.

The meeting was opened by Dame Carol Black, the former UK Government advisor on work and health. Around sixty participants from universities, government and heath and business organisations attended the meeting.

The State of Small Business Britain report is the Enterprise Research Centre’s annual review of trends and issues affecting small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK. The report draws together and summarises several different strands of the Centre’s research to give a picture of the landscape for the UK’s SMEs in 2022.
2022 has been another extremely challenging year for the UK’s SMEs. Many have spent the year dealing with a range of after-effects associated with the pandemic, whilst also facing Brexit impacts, rising energy prices and sharp increases in the cost of doing business.
