Government must invest in HR for small businesses, says CIPD

An investment of £13 million per year could provide small businesses with the HR support they need, according to a research exercise by the CIPD and JP Morgan.

The CIPD believes that if the Government invested this sum to support small businesses, it could help to unlock lagging productivity in the UK.

Its findings follow a year-long 'People Skills' pilot, which provided people management support to small employers in Hackney, Stoke-on-Trent and Glasgow.
