Skills are not enough: the globalisation of knowledge and the future UK economy

This paper explores the policy implications of a major international study of the global HR and skills strategies of major transnational companies (TNCs) operating in seven countries, including China and India. The study raises key policy issues about globalisation, skills and the future of work.  

The paper begins by outlining the current UK policy framework and moves on to present some of the key trends highlighted by the research findings, which may challenge this framework. It then examines a number of policy implications that explain why one of the biggest policy challenges is the rise of a global high skilled, low waged workforce.
