Acas response to the Government's Green Paper, Building our Industrial Strategy.

Acas Chair, Sir Brendan Barber, said:

"I welcome the Government's new Industrial Strategy. A strong economy where the UK's productivity levels are comparable to the best in the world will reap benefits to both employers and employees.

"Well managed, efficient and innovative workplaces are key to unlocking productivity and can help realise the goals of the Government's Industrial Strategy. Acas has identified seven levers of workplace productivity that can help make it happen."
