The Government will ask for more women on boards

The Government continues to mitigate its funding issues by asking businesses to deliver its social policy agenda.

The Business Minister has just written to the 350 largest UK firms asking them to publish a break-down of staff by race and pay. Coming after the apprenticeship levy (which starts next week) and before a push to get more women on boards over the summer, this latest measure is part of the Government’s wider strategy of “social policy by procurement”.

Companies that supply the public sector are going to have to meet a growing list of criteria, beyond their core competence, if they want to win major contracts.
