Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Good Work Standard was informed by a public call for evidence process. This initially ran from 4 July to 16 August 2017, and was extended to the 18 September to allow some organisations more time to respond. 72 responses were received to a set of consultation questions asking for views about the goals, criteria, opportunities and challenges for employers.

A further feedback session on 22 January 2018 with attendees representing approximately 55 business, public sector, civil society, and trade union organisations allowed officers to consider expert policy input alongside employers' views and address some of the outstanding questions.

My officers continue to engage and consult businesses of all sectors and sizes as we develop the Good Work Standard.
