Workforce Integration and Inclusion in London’s growth sectors

The GLA commissioned Work Advance and Institute for Employment Studies to conduct qualitative research to identify sector specific reasons driving the underrepresentation of certain groups of Londoners in the workplace. The relevant sectors are: Green Economy, Creative and Cultural Industries, Digital & Tech, Health and Hospitality. 

 The qualitative research had the following objectives:  

  • Establish the main reasons for underrepresentation in each sector and ways to address these.  
  • Establish ways to address the barriers identified and access opportunities in the relevant sectors 
  • Capture different routes and opportunities for accessing the sector, including both informal and formal routes for accessing the sectors.
