Partly addressing the doubts surrounding her commitment to prison reform, last week Secretary of State for Justice Liz Truss unveiled a new White Pape...
I'm really interested in how consumers will understand the impacts of these new fabrics. Jenny talked about how the company approaches trust and transparency for their customer by using certifications
While it may sometimes feel like the ground is moving beneath our feet, there's one fundamental shift underway that is cause for hope rather than alar...
I've been dealing with this for years and some days I win and other days I don't... I think depressed people are capable of putting up with a hell of a lot more than those that don't!
I just hope that is not what Hilary Clinton is doing today. Someone who has got that close to being the first female president of the USA clearly isn't stupid. But in my experience, anyone who has a positive Plan B in their sights, one that's both positive and achievable, will be OK.
In an era where many marketers are obsessed with questions of purpose and social responsibility, politics have run away in the opposite direction, embracing the bad habits marketing is trying to leave behind.
Social media meninists and radio shock jocks will ask - in synthetically sympathetic tones - whether this isn't just a fuss over nothing. But the pay gap isn't a generational overhang and it isn't going away any time soon. Discrimination isn't a game. Poverty isn't a game.
Improvement in suicide rates for me is all about changing the environment. At work, in the City and elsewhere, men must be encouraged to seek help when the burden gets too great. How can we encourage men to open up and seek help without shame and stigma? We cannot just sit back and watch.
The pace of technological change is increasing. Which means some paradigm shift might be accelerating towards us, about to transform our lives in even more dramatic ways. To unexpectedly (mis)quote Donald Rumsfeld, right now, we don't know what we don't know. But that doesn't mean we can't shape our own future or control our own destinies. The Tories will leave all this to chance because they are ideologically wedded to outdated orthodoxies about the primacy of the market. But that isn't an adequate response to the tidal wave of change that is about to wash over us.
I would be lying if I said starting a business after I left school was part of my big plan. Starting a business was probably somewhere along my timeline of goals, but at 18 it certainly wasn't.
It's been a long time since trade was such a hot button topic when talking politics. Tip O'Neill, a former Speaker of the US House of Representatives, often used to say that "all politics is local" and, to an extent, that mind-set remains true today. In one of the most politically unpredictable years in recent history, trade is being used as a catch-all scapegoat for a range of local issues.
What is it with men and hugs? The other week after an episode of The Apprentice, Twitter lit up with clips and comments on the "man-hug that never was" between the latest victim of the boardroom, Oliver, and one of his team mates, Paul.
It is tempting to think the rise in self-employment and the gig economy represent some sort of return to the genuine market economy of the Eighteenth Century, a time when people traded with each other to survive as the industrial revolution gave them the tools with which to do so.
This research points out that businesses are right to be concerned about mental health at work - with discrimination, fear and shame in play, it is very hard for the massive potential of mental health as an asset to be realised. It is time this changed. The report calls on British businesses to rise to one of the defining challenges of our time and create a culture in which mental health is valued: where disclosure is encouraged, support is present, and everyone feels that their work and the benefits they receive contribute to their wellbeing.
As IT becomes more pivotal in the digital era, CIOs must ensure that their CEO has a clear understanding of what IT is delivering for what level of company-wide software risk exposure. With this information, smart decisions about speed-to-market and risk can be made.
Self-employment is now at its highest ever - at 4.6 million in February 2016. It has been increasing since the year 2000 and there is a clear trend to...
