  • Protect, support and empower customers by simplifying data practices; building inclusive digital access; and enabling more informed customer choices.
  • Embrace the changing nature of work by preparing employees with digital skills; anticipate automation with new roles; extending employer responsibility for the growing ‘gig’ economy workforce.
  • Deliver innovative products and services that serve society by designing technology with purpose; promoting sustainable consumption and partnering cross-industry to design and scale solutions that benefit society.
  • Drive a transparent, inclusive and productive value chain by empowering suppliers with digital solutions and training; minimising the environmental impact of operations; using technology to address corruption, exploitation and environmental harm.

In order to understand and define the role of responsible business in this digital era, Business in the Community's digital priorities programme will, with the support of the Digital Champions Network, combine thought with action and set a new agenda for UK businesses.

The digital transformation of the UK economy is a significant opportunity to drive growth and prosperity for the betterment of both business and citizens. It also offers the chance to reduce poverty and inequalities, improve livelihoods and enable us to better manage growth on a finite planet.

However, this digital transformation also presents challenges to society. Some forecasts suggest that as many as ten million jobs (35 per cent of today’s UK workforce) could be lost due to automation by 2035 alone. And the negative impacts of reduced face-to-face interactions and hyper-connectivity are only just starting to be understood.
