Learn the lessons of Impact or history will repeat itself

I have to take issue with the PrintWeek editorial of 9 September, which basically concluded that the reason for the proposed closure of Impact has nothing to do with the 20-week dispute that has taken place there, but was in fact because the company was not - and maybe never had been - a viable operation.

Lending and investment will return to changed landscape

To my mind, the three key UK factors that have hampered growth since the recession are lack of funding, end of the housing bubble and the stodgy state of the public sector. Other elements have come into play, such as rises in commodity prices as emerging...

Setting the right tone for toner tech trends

Digital printing has come a long way since the days of the 40ppm, 600dpi printers. So what's next?

Many schemes available to help print plan for changes

The government is introducing far-reaching changes to the pension landscape which will impact on every UK employer and have cost implications for most. In a nutshell, every employer with one employee upwards will be required by law to automatically enrol...

Our concerns about the government's approach to health and safety is based on research and our experience of past cuts in the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that led to fewer inspections, less enforcement and a consequent increase in accidents and ill-health at work.

This more targeted approach is a step in the right direction

This 50m-per-year fund marks a radical change in the relationship between government and industry. Gone are the days of government hand-outs to those industries used to getting 'fully funded' training. For printers, who have been pretty well ignored by the public sector skills investment programmes, save for the work of Proskills and the remaining few high-quality training providers, it marks a new set of opportunities.

TUPE revision is good news but won't stop phoenixes
