The challenges of transition: from public to private
The London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) have partnered with Hays to produce a report called “The challenges of transition: from public to private”. Through this report, which surveyed the views of public sector employees and private employers, we have identified six critical steps to ensure the successful transition of the workforce from the public to the private sector.

Workforce Futures Roundtable
In April we conducted the first in a series of high-level roundtable discussions which will run throughout the the year, bringing together leading HR professionals and Chief Executives from local government and social housing sectors. We explored the qualities that would be needed in the future - as wide-ranging as emotional intelligence and entrepreneurialism - and how they might be identified and nurtured. The event opened with an introduction by Zoe Gruhn, Director of Learning at the Institute for Government, who provided an overview of their recent research into governance, leadership and accountability, and the impact of these factors on senior government officials.

Our second roundtable took place in May to take a closer look at how the healthcare sector is coping with the pressure to continuously deliver quality services to the public. If employers are to deliver higher quality healthcare within fixed or shrinking budgets, it is clear that new management and leadership skills will be needed to improve workforce productivity, flexibility and future performance. This high-level roundtable explores how employers can identify future skills gaps and reshape the workforce to deliver measurable benefits to patient services. Read the full report.
In our third session, we discussed how reductions in public spending and the restructuring of the workforce will quickly become necessary to maintain housing services; given this, we explored the potential pitfalls and strategies to be put into place to reduce costs without downgrading key services.

Hays Leadership Survey
With budget cuts looming we recently conducted a survey which looks at how the public sector is preparing for the deepest spending cuts in a generation. The research revealed that public sector chief executives and managers believe they lack the skills needed to deliver services when funding cuts start impacting in 2010 and beyond. Read full report.
The Hays Manifesto
We recently released a manifesto for employment detailing the serious shortcomings we see in Britain’s jobs market and highlighting issues that the elected government should take into consideration. It focuses on areas such as National Insurance Contributions and having an education system which is providing Britain's employers with the skills we need and providing opportunities for graduates.
