Morning Money: Ofcom releases Openreach report & Dave Millett of Equinox talks about the ruling
Dave Millett, Founder and Managing Director of telecoms broker, Equinox, talks about Ofcom’s report ruling on whether BT can keep its Openreach broadband arm. BT seems to have escaped the immediate threat of selling off its wholesale arm, but it faces a stricter regulatory straitjacket under wide-ranging proposals which would allow other operators to lay fibre optic lines alongside its network. Dave discusses the decision.

Shop Floor 21 Feb 2016
This week, Nick Peters hits the Shop Floor to discuss why ever high levels of employment are not translating into higher wages with Steve Lewis, a former army officer and businessman who runs the Number 18 coffee shop in Crickhowell. Steve is one of the leaders of the Fair Tax Town programmes. Nick looks at why leaders need to listen to their followers in order to close the digital skills gap inside corporations with Colin Sloman, Managing Director of Accenture, a consultancy firm who conducted a major survey of global businesses to assess how they are keeping up with the pace of lightning fast technological change. Despite unemployment levels falling, and more people striking out on their own to add to the country's growing micro-business community, Nick Peters hears from Gerwyn Davies, the Labour Market Advisor at the CIPD about why this good news isn't necessarily good for wages and productivity levels. And the good, the bad, and the ugly, Nick takes a closer look at workforce surveys to find out the do's and don'ts when it comes to writing them with Anthony Hughes of recruitment specialists Coburg Banks. Plus, the first in our series of IDG Insights is launched, bringing you the stories that matter.

Shop Floor 14 Feb 2016
Nick Peters hits the shop floor for another packed edition on workplace issues. This week, social mobility, the goal of productive work and enterprise, comes under attack. Nick Peters talks to Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the RSA, about the idea that social mobility could be cruel or even evil. Digital skill levels among young people mean employers are finding it harder to get qualified staff and many young people risk missing out on good jobs - Nick Peters finds out more from Nigel Walsh at CapGemini. The Prime Minister says he wants ex-offenders to have much more support moving from jail into jobs and productive lives. It’s already happening - Nick Peters discovers how from Jane Gould, a trustee of Christian charity CleanSheet. And we head east to Vietnam to meet the "Digital Nomads", young people who are taking the idea of remote working to extraordinary lengths.
