Survey of London businesses on behalf of the LCCI and London Councils.
- Lower transport costs and better availability and affordability of housing are the two factors most commonly selected as being beneficial to both recruitment and retention.
- Greater financial support is seen as the factor most likely to encourage businesses to take on more apprentices.
- Two in five (40%) London businesses employ EU workers and a quarter (24%) employ workers from outside the EU. Employing non-UK workers is mainly done to access their skills, education and experience.
- Brexit is seen as the main challenge facing London businesses in the next twelve months.
