The world of work failed too many workers pre-pandemic and the challenges of the last 12 months have shone a spotlight on the inequalities that ravage our society and workforce. We must not go back to the old system, we must build a fairer, more equal society that gives everyone a stake in the economy, a voice at work and hope of a better future.
