Shaping a vibrant economy for the UK

It’s what we stand for.

We've chosen to set our reputation alongside a bold purpose – by unlocking the potential for growth in our people, clients and our communities we believe we can help shape a vibrant economy where no-one gets left behind.

It's bold and we know we can't do it alone. Collaboration is at the heart of achieving our purpose – whether that's working with banks, regulators and government to rebuild trust or working with the public sector to build thriving environments that support sustainable and inclusive growth.

Over the past 18 months we have brought together over 1000 business and community leaders from across the UK to share their aspirations. We've collected their thoughts and ideas and created a set of recommendations we're sharing with government.

Vibrant Economy Commission

The Vibrant Economy Commission began working with us in October 2016. They are a group of some of the country's pioneering business leaders, charity executives, local government representatives and thought leaders who are helping us to develop the ideas and actions that could shape a vibrant economy.

Vibrant Economy Index - measuring England's success

Alongside the Vibrant Economy Commission we devised a new way to measure the success of a vibrant economy. The result is – the Vibrant Economy Index. Considering success across six key areas which together create a measure of vibrancy that looks beyond financial returns.

Live Labs

To date our regional and city Live Labs have brought together over 1000 leaders from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Following the Appreciative Inquiry methodology, attendees started with their area's strengths and developed ideas to build on key regional opportunities.
