On the 26th April, the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed (IPSE) will host its new policy conference, which will be attended by business leaders and policymakers, as well as contractors and other self-employed individuals from around the UK.
This conference is the first of its kind, and demonstrates the increased attention which is being paid to contractors as part of the government’s wider policy discussions.
According to James Gribben, IPSE’s Head of Press and PR, this conference will ‘allow delegates to address issues that are affecting them’, which presents a great opportunity for contractors to have an effect on government policy initiatives – and to air their views on new ways to recognise the vital contribution that contractors make to the economy as part of the UK’s flexible workforce.
The title of the conference is ‘Unleashing the self-employed in the new economy’, and a key part of the event will be to discuss the different ways that the government can support the rapidly increasing contribution which contractors bring to the table.
Commenting on the event, James Gribben said, “The fact that we’ve been able to put on an event of this sort which has attracted so much interest – both from members and politicians – is proof that self-employment is being recognised as an increasingly important issue.”
