A business is only as good as its best people


At Allied Irish Bank (GB) we are taking the temperature of the UK economy through our three-part Steps to Growth series. We have been looking at how firms can leverage controllable factors to take advantage of opportunities for growth. Our first publication explored the implications for business strategy. This, our second publication, considers the value of an engaged, skilled workforce, and what it takes to assemble and retain a winning team.


Our exclusive survey of 500 businesses across the country and across a variety of sectors has given us unique insight into the strategic approach of UK businesses to the changing dynamics of their markets as Brexit looms.


Steps to Growth: People explores these issues in depth:


How critical is company culture?


The next generation

The UK skills crisis
