'Gay Pride' events have become big business, especially for tourism marketing offices who increasingly promote them to shine a spotlight on their destination in a competitive LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) tourism market...
Unemployment is always at the heart of the news agenda and last month people began eulogising over a five year low of 2.2 million in the UK. This is of course great news, the more people we have in employment, the more stable our economy is and this can only drive further growth...
With the USA (at a Federal level) going down the regulatory route instead, the Australian Prime Minister touring the world arguing against it and the ...
We need to make people want to work in this country and as far as I'm concerned we should abolish the National Minimum Wage, and replace it with a National Living Wage.
With the mornings getting lighter and the evening getting longer, we start to feel our spirits lifting, day by day, as Winter turns to Spring. It's the world's yearly reinvention of itself, and it's a transitional time that I hope will encourage you to do the same.
Since the election, output for every hour worked has not gone up - it's gone down, whilst output per worker has followed the same trajectory. We're actually less productive than we were in 2010. This appalling record is far worse than the last years of the 1970s, long deemed the moment when 'British disease' reached its peak.
UK workers were more than four times as likely to feign illness to get time off work compared with their European counterparts, meaning there is potentially at least a four fold scope for reduction of sick days in the workplace in the UK.
Huge progress has been made in recent years to address the gender disparity in the construction sector, admittedly from an extremely low starting point - but with just 8.5% of UK engineers women, much more needs to be done quickly to not only address the gender gap but to avert a skills shortage in the UK construction and engineering industry.
In a switched-on world it's not about calming your mind. It's about tricking it into feeling like everything is under control. At least at first. Because overwhelm takes no prisoners, and new business owners are often dazzled by the excitement of getting started.
It is the nature of the Internet that new things will come all the time. And we'll donate our data willingly. So new data just keeps coming and the idea that this can effortlessly integrate into the existing data pool is a big ask.
Economics is politics and it can never be a science. Yet the dominant neoclassical school of economics succeeded in changing the name of the discipline from the traditional 'political economy' to 'economics' at the turn of the 20th Century.
Tea is enjoyed the world over - it's the most popular drink after water - but as we sip our cuppa how many of us pause to think about the life of those who produce it?
Although we would never dream of taking a laptop or chair upon leaving a job, the same cannot be said for information. An Iron Mountain study from 2012 revealed that two thirds of European office workers admit they had taken or would take information they had been involved in creating when they left a job.
I've been talking for some time about the changing world of work, and how traditional working life patterns of employment and doing business are increasingly less relevant in today's workplace. A combination of economics, technology and changing attitudes is forcing change upon us, like it or not.
The Bank of England is getting a knack for sharp screeching U-turns, not ideal when governor Mark Carney's beloved "forward guidance" plan over the path of interest rates is meant to be clear and credible... Yet now it seems they're just making things up as they go.
