  • Business leaders are more likely to agree that public health rules, regulations and protections help to support the health and well-being of the UK workforce (87%) than they do for the people they work with and manage (85%) although three in five (61%) say that they do not go far enough in supporting the health and well-being of the UK workforce.
  • Half (50%) of business leaders say that trade deals done by the UK government with another country after Brexit would have a positive impact on the UK workforce, whilst a similar proportion (44%) say that reducing the number of public health rules, regulations or protections would have a negative impact on the UK workforce.
