The John Lewis Partnership is donating over £1m this summer to more than 1,000 local charities and community organisations helping to end child poverty across the UK

To help tackle this important issue, each John Lewis and Waitrose shop will be directing their regular community donations to charities in their own communities that support children in poverty. This … Read more

Now more than ever, new models for “skilling up” are emerging to futureproof the workforce, including more flexible offerings through higher education institutions, employers, and online course providers. Amid the angst about drops in higher ed enrollment, many predominantly online institutions saw enrollment climb — in some cases by quite a lot.

What do trading figures show about UK shares such as easyJet?

In a world that’s increasingly reliant on automation, it’s no surprise that many businesses are turning to chatbots for help with running their companies.

Among consumers, however, chatbots have historically had a poor reputation. They’re remembered for their infancy, when they weren’t very good at conversing in a natural and organic way.
