Inclusive growth

An economy for all

We want to build an economy that enables all people to contribute to and benefit from wealth creation, and enjoy a decent standard of living.

We believe we can drive economic growth by connecting people to economically viable opportunities, supporting career and work progression and using investment and procurement to drive change, grow local markets and supply chains, and increase productivity.

Over the next six months we will be creating a free programme of events to bring people together, share ideas, create new ones and be part of a growing and inclusive economy.

Digital businesses in West Yorkshire twice as inclusive as UK average

The first ever report on flexible working in West Yorkshire has found that digital businesses in the region offer double the number of flexible jobs than the national average.

It also revealed that the overall number of jobs advertised as flexible across all sectors in West Yorkshire was nearly 2% higher than the UK average at 13.4% meaning it is well placed to develop an inclusive labour market that creates opportunities for people who may be unable to take up roles with a more traditional working pattern.
