Well, what a summer! We've kept you updated on managing workplaces in this hot weather. The sun shone on 4 July for our annual All-Party Parliamentary Print Group event, where printers and MPs discussed the importance of print (page 12).
We celebrate some industry beginners who are clearly off to a flying start on page 11. Apprenticeship delivery is a large part of our offering to businesses and it's great to be congratulating so many early achievements.
We responded to the Governments' Call for Evidence into factors that impact productivity in May, and were pleased to see them recognise the role good management and leadership plays in high productivity on page 4, something we encourage through our management programmes.
We share guidelines to make marketing work for you on pages 14-15, and also guidance on wellbeing in the workplace on pages 16-17.
The shortlist for the British Book Design and Production Awards is revealed on pages 18-19 - good luck to all of them! The winners will be annouced at the Awards ceremony on 22 November. Add the date to your diaries!
