At the CIPD, our mission is to champion better work and working lives. We’ve produced a policy programme which, we believe, does this and which encourages the new Welsh Government to do the same. We call upon the new government to:
  • Boost productivity and skills utilisation throughout the Welsh labour market – by conducting a fundamental review of skills policy, with a strong focus on employer demand for skills and skills utilisation, encouraging more workplace development and investment in skills, as well as encouraging the building of the high-performance workplaces that Wales needs in order to compete on a UK-wide and global stage.
  • Support opportunities that enable young people to succeed in our labour market – by facilitating high-quality careers information, advice and guidance (IAG) with strong relationships between education and business, including the continuation of the Jobs Growth Wales programme and supporting SMEs in offering more high-quality apprenticeships.
  • Take a ‘good practice’ approach to employment regulation and policy within public services – continuing to support public sector employers, including ongoing positive outcomes relating to public service pay and conditions. Also, support the work of the Public Services Staff Commission and the Workforce Partnership Council, and use the opportunity that public service reform presents to ensure that good practice is understood and shared.
