North of Tyne Mayor backs event to boost skills and productivity across the North East

North of Tyne Mayor Jamie Driscoll will attend an upcoming business event in the North East dedicated to skills, training, staff wellbeing, and productivity.

The Mayor will join 250 leaders and managers at the People Power Conference to share best practices and promote a joint commitment to investing in skills, productivity and workforce development.

People Power, which is sponsored by Northumbria University, Newcastle, is set to welcome record numbers of employers who will learn about creating an organisational culture that “achieves maximum success”.

Leading experts from across the UK will present research and fresh thinking about a range of key employer issues such as: Resilience, Health & Wellbeing, Emotional Intelligence, Work Life Balance, Change Management, Hybrid Working, Equality and Diversity, Digitalisation, and Employee Engagement.

Notable regional employers joining the event include Sage, Newcastle Building Society, Sintons LLP, Northumbrian Water, Komatsu, UBS, Leo Vegas, NHS BSA, Aircon Group, Lookers, North Star Housing, and Vodafone.

Mayor Jamie Driscoll said: “Good work is about so much more than job creation. It’s about an economy that works for everyone. It boosts companies’ productivity and boosts workers’ quality of life. That’s why we have worked collaboratively with the local business community to put into practice our North of Tyne Good Work Pledge.

“Investing in people’s skills is key to business growth and provides the platform for us to compete in an increasingly competitive and challenging global marketplace.

“I am convinced we have untapped potential in the North of Tyne. It’s right that People Power have chosen to focus on the skills agenda, and I look forward to exploring ideas to unlock that potential.”
