1. BCC: "We need government to act in partnership with business communities"
2. CBI: "Government must build on the great things so many firms are already doing"Carolyn Fairbairn, the CBI's director-general: “The CBI supports the Prime Minister’s vision of a fairer society, with more inclusive growth underpinned by good business and great jobs. “Government action can help make this vision a reality and must be developed hand-in-hand with industry – a new partnership as the bedrock of a new economy." “The CBI welcomes the Government’s consultation on business practices and will take this opportunity to understand and respond to the true concerns of society.
“Government must build on the great things so many firms are already doing and not impose approaches that look good on paper, but don’t make a difference in practice. Placing workers or consumers on boards can be a solution for some firms, but may not be the only or even best way of changing company culture.”
