					Three-quarters of marketers say their organisation is using or contemplating the use of AI tools, according to survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Three-quarters of marketers say their organisation is using or contemplating the use of AI tools: A survey of marketers has revealed that 75% report that their organisation is either 'already using' or 'actively contemplating' the implementation of generative AI tools.    Thirty-two percent of marketers are presently utilising this technology, while 43% are contemplating its adoption.   The Future of Marketing survey by Econsultancy polled 800 marketing professionals in the UK to examine the trends shaping the industry, as well as interviewed industry experts.   Regarding the anticipated value of Generative AI (GenAI), marketers have identified several key benefits over the next two years, including accelerated campaign production (64%), enhanced experimentation and optimisation (55%), cost and resource savings within the organisation (47%), and improved personalisation (46%). In essence, GenAI is seen as a means to achieve more with less.   However, almost half of the respondents (47%) identified a lack of a clear strategy for employing these technologies as one of the top three challenges they face when using generative AI.   Marketing budgets   This year, only 10% of marketers anticipate a substantial increase in their budgets over the next two years, found the research, compared to 17% who said the same in last year's survey. However, just one in 20 said they anticipated budget cuts.    The majority of marketers instead anticipate that their budgets will either remain unchanged (27%) or experience a slight increase (39%).   'Data and insight capability' took the top spot as the primary budgeting priority for marketers over the next two years, with 57% of marketers expecting increased investment in this area. Following closely were 'technology and infrastructure spending' (55%) and 'strategic initiatives' (53%).

					Price hikes at hospitality venues would cause 37% of consumers to feel less loyal, finds survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Price hikes at hospitality venues would cause 37% of consumers to feel less loyal: A recent survey, conducted by Zonal and CGA by NIQ, has uncovered that 37% of UK consumers are less inclined to revisit a hospitality venue if they experience price hikes.   The survey, which questioned over 5,000 UK adults, revealed that increasing prices ranked as the second most significant factor in diminishing consumer loyalty, second only to a string of negative experiences (49%).   Additional factors affecting customer loyalty included a single negative experience (24%) and the perception of not receiving value for money, particularly during the cost-of-living crisis (also 24%). Furthermore, 23% of respondents expressed that their loyalty to a brand might decrease if the brand became embroiled in controversy.   Furthermore, the survey showed that over half (52%) of respondents now expect more from the hospitality brands they are loyal to due to the cost-of-living crisis, with this sentiment reaching 64% among the 18-24-year-old demographic.   The research also delved into consumers' perceptions of loyalty schemes at hospitality venues. More than half of those surveyed agreed that loyalty schemes provide value for money. Additionally, nearly half (47%) revealed that they had joined a loyalty scheme to save money, in light of the cost-of-living crisis.   Olivia FitzGerald, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Zonal, said of the findings: 'Having a digital loyalty tool in place makes it easy for operators to control accruals, rewards and redemptions, even for completely bespoke schemes. All this feeds into providing those exceptional experiences that customers expect, encouraging them to return time and time again.'

This has resulted in schools opting for other English-speaking countries like Malta or Ireland for their school trips, according to the research.

				</title>
				<description>
					 The best rated UK museums and galleries which are free to visit according to latest Which? survey: Consumer group, Which? has recently carried out research to understand which free UK museums and galleries provide the best day out. It found that St Fagan's National Museum of History in Cardiff was the consumer favourite, receiving a customer rating of 94%, partly due to its popular demonstrations of traditional crafts. The Welsh museum was closely followed by Beamish 'The Living Museum of the North' in County Durham, the National Railway Museum in York and the RAF Museum in Cosford, all of which received customer ratings of 91%. The National Museum of Scotland (90%) made up the top five.   The survey gathered the views of 4,283 Which? members, who gave customer ratings based on their personal experiences. Respondents were asked to rate attractions in categories including information provided, engagement and entertainment, lack of queues and crowds, value for money and the range and quality of facilities. These were then used to calculate the overall satisfaction score.    Other museums and galleries making up the top 10 included Cardiff National Museum, the RAF Museum in London, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in West Yorkshire (all with a customer rating of 87%).   London attractions   Most London attractions landed outside of the top ten, with some of the main players not even making the top 20.   The National Gallery ranked 13th, awarded four out of five stars for engagement and entertainment and value for money, but just three out of five for information provided, lack of queues/crowds and range of quality and facilities, resulting in an overall score of 85%.   In 14th place was the National Portrait Gallery (85%), while the VA South Kensington ranked 18th (84%), followed by the Imperial War Museum in London (83% in 20th position).   Just outside of the top 20 (in 21st position) was the National History Museum (83%) scoring just two stars for 'lack of crowds/queues',  followed by the Museum of London (82%) and The British Museum (81%).   Tate Modern ranked 39th with a satisfaction score of 76% while the Science Museum and London was in 33rd position, scoring 80%.   In addition to the museum and gallery ratings, Which? also asked around 3,000 people about their favourite historic attraction, with Durham Cathedral topping the list with a score of 86%. A close second was St David's Cathedral in Wales ( (80%), while Chichester Cathedral came in third (77%).

					Just under half UK businesses worried their business will not survive due to spiralling energy costs, finds survey

				<description>
					 Just under half UK businesses worried their business will not survive due to spiralling energy costs: A survey has revealed the plight of UK businesses trying to survive amid spiralling  energy costs, with just under half (45%) of the business owners and senior decision makers polled saying they are worried that their business may not be able weather the storm.    The survey by financial comparison site, NerdWallet polled 500 businesses, also revealing that a quarter of companies have had to make redundancies due to rising energy costs, with a a further 28% reporting that they have stopped employees sharing their devices in the workpace in a bid to conserve energy.    In response to spriarling energy costs in 2022, 43% of respondents said they had increased their prices, with a further 8% planning to do so in the coming weeks and months.    Respondents were asked about the measures they were taking as a buisness to reduce energy usuage and cut down on bills, with 68% saying they have changed to a hybrid working structure, and a third (32%) revealing they have fully moved to remote working.    For respondents who revealed they have been unable to make up losses by increasing their prices, many have had to make further cuts elsewhere. More than two in five (43%) said they have cut budgets for staff training, while 38% said they have put a freeze on hiring new employees. Just over a third said they have tried to balance the books by downsizing their office.    Connor Campbell, NerdWallet's business finance expert, said: 'When we conducted this survey, we perhaps expected to see some level of hardship reflected in the results. However, the amount of scaling back and budget cuts laid bare in this survey highlights just how much UK businesses are struggling to get to grips with the energy crisis."

				</title>
				<description>
					 79% of Brits believe that UK trains are clean, with Great Northern being deemed the cleanest: A survey into public transport in the UK has uncovered that on average, 79% of Brits believe that UK trains are clean, with Great Northern coming in 12% above the national average at 91%.   The study by Transport Focus polled people for 12 weeks starting in April 2022, uncovering that only punctuality and crowding were more important to Brits than cleanliness. Furthermore, Great Northern ranked second in both these areas ( 95% and 85% respectively) behind c2c and Merseyrail.   When asked about their overall satisfaction with Network Rail, 85% of the North West and Central regions of the UK were satisfied with their journeys over the last four weeks; making it the least satisfied region in the country.   On the other hand, Wales and Western alongside Southern England reported 91% satisfaction with their Network Rail journey. In addition, Scotland had an average satisfaction of 89%, similar to Eastern England with 88%.   The poll also looked at correlations between age groups and the types of people using trains, finding that commuters were 5% less likely to say they were satisfied with their journey than those using the railway for leisure.   Furthermore, there were more people using the railway for leisure (32%) than for commuting (29%). One in five people travelled by train to see friends and family, with a further 3% using it for essential shopping.   In addition, older age groups are more likely to say they were satisfied with their journey than younger ones, found the research, with an average of 85% satisfaction amongst 18-34-year-olds compared to 94% for those aged 55 and over.   Rob Mullen, Train Services director for Great Norther and Thameslink, said: 'It's great to see our hard work is paying off, but we know we've got to keep that hard work going to ensure everyone's health and comfort as we welcome them back to the railway.'

					88% of UK employees would support a four-day working week, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 88% of UK employees would support a four-day working week: A recent survey has uncovered that almost nine in 10 British employees think moving towards a four-day working week would benefit them, with 76% of SME employers and 86% of recruiters in agreement.    The research by NatWest Rapid Cash surveyed 500 recruitment agencies, 500 SME employers and 2,000 office workers in May 2022, finding that while most recruiters support the idea of a four-day week, a third were of the opinion that extra costs would be incurred as a result.   When asked about other ways they feel their working life would be improved, a third of employees (31%) said a more flexible work pattern would be more beneficial.    Increasing productivity is one of the main reasons cited in favour of changing the standard working week from five to four days; however, just three in 10 managers believe that productivity would actually be improved. However, around two-thirds (68%) said they believe that moving to a shorter working week would increase productivity.   Recruiters also cited a number of other reasons for switching to a four-day week, with 87% believing it would improve mental health and three-quarters (76%) stating that it would result in significant improvement to a person's standard of living. In addition, the monetary benefit would help the British economy (70%), they said.    When SME employers were asked about the potential benefits of a four-day working week, almost half (47%) said it would improve employee retention. However, 45% were concerned that reducing the hours would lead to less work being done, with a further 46% feeling some of the work would be left incomplete.   On Monday 6 June 2022, more than 3,300 workers at 70 businesses in the UK started working a four-day week with no loss of pay on a trial basis.   Natalie Kerr, chief commercial director for NatWest Rapid Cash, said: 'Recruiters clearly see the four-day working week and personal wellbeing gaining popularity among employees. But many businesses are reluctant to provide a better work-life balance due to increased operational costs. Cashflow is key when it comes not only to staffing but also to having the flexibility to adopt new models of working, and to make the most of growth opportunities.'

					46% of Human Resource professionals frequently have dreams filled with stress or anxiety, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 46% of Human Resource professionals frequently have dreams filled with stress and anxiety: A survey into the impact that a persons' profession has on their sleep has uncovered that human resource professionals have more work-related dreams than any other profession; with 46% saying they frequently have stressful or anxiety-filled dreams.   The study by Neville Johnson polled over 2,200 UK professionals, and also looked at what the most commonly reoccurring events were in these dreams, with excessive workload being the most common.   In addition, participants reported having dreams where they were underqualified in their role, with those in legal roles most likely to have dreams about imposter syndrome.   Although HR professionals were found to have the most work-related dreams, four in 10 media, marketing and sales workers also had the same experience, along with education (37%), finance (35%) and healthcare professionals (30%) -- the top five professions for stressful, work-related dreams.   The survey, also, looked at similarities and disparities between the amount of pay individuals receive and the content of their dreams, finding that participants with higher incomes were more likely to have dreams about being overworked.   When looking at which UK city dreams about work the most, the study found that Belfast ranks top in this category, with Plymouth and Nottingham in second and third. Furthermore, Edinburgh ranked as the highest city in Scotland, but was ranked fourth in the whole of the UK.   A sleep expert analyst from Neville Johnson, said: "Dreaming about being late to work means that you are likely stressing over a potentially missed opportunity. If you are experiencing these dreams, try to set yourself goals in and out of the workplace, or speak to your boss about potential opportunities to grow."

					On average, young adults and teens spend more time on TikTok than they do watching TV, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 On average, young adults and teens spend more time on TikTok than they do watching TV: A recent survey into young people's internet and TV habits has found that, on average, those aged between 15 and 24-years-old spend 57 minutes per day on TikTok; four minutes longer than they do watching TV.   The study by Ofcom polled UK citizens to find correlations and disparities between social media and TV screen time.    When looking at which age group spends the most time watching TV, the poll found that those aged 65 and over spend just under six hour a day watching TV; around a third of their waking day. On the other hand, the amount of time that 16-24-year-olds spend in front of the TV has decreased by two-thirds over the last 10 years.   The cost-of-living crisis has impacted everyone differently, with the television industry being no exception. The number of people subscribing to at least one streaming service dropped by over 350,000 this year alone.   Around one in five homes in the UK are subscribed to Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+, costing around £300 per annum, found the research.   In addition, a separate Ofcom study found that 73% of those who unsubscribed from a streaming service earlier this year said they expect to re-subscribe; showing the flexibility that consumers have when choosing their streaming services.   The study also looked at how people chose to watch national events, such as the Queen's Jubilee and the 2022 Women's Euros Final; with roughly 10 million people watching the events live on broadcast television.   On the other hand, almost six in 10 participants said they used either a Public Service Broadcaster's on-demand service to watch shows live. This means an average increase of three minutes per day spent watching BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and All4.   Ian Macrae, Director or Market Intelligence at Ofcom, said: "Traditional broadcasters face tough competition from online streaming platforms, which they're partly meeting through the popularity of their own on-demand player apps, while broadcast television is still the place to go for big events that bring the nation together."

					Three in 10 Londoners state they are making fewer calls to businesses than they were three years ago, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Three in 10 Londoners state they are making fewer calls to businesses than they were three years ago: A survey into how easy it is for the British public to contact businesses has uncovered that three in 10 are making fewer calls to businesses than they did three years ago.    The study by Moneypenny polled residents of the British capital about how frequently they contact companies and what the biggest annoyances are when doing so. In addition, they survey found that a third of Londoners are making more calls to businesses, with just 22% saying they are making less.   Furthermore, the length of the calls from Londoners to businesses last an average of 52% longer than they did three years ago.   When asked about why they are more reluctant to contact businesses, a third stated they were put through to complex, automated voice messages. In addition, 27% of those surveyed said phones not being answered, annoying hold music or being told to check the website were obstacles to them.   The majority of Londoners (89%) said it annoys them when the company does not include a phone number on their website for their customers to contact them.   The poll also looked into the repercussions to the businesses of a negative experience when calling, with 36% saying they would take their business elsewhere. Similarly, three in 10 participants would complain directly to the company, with a further 27% informing their family and friends of the bad experience.   When customers feel the need to contact a business, it is often for a good reason; with a third of respondents stating they call a business if the matter is complicated. In addition, 31% said they would only make a phone call if it was an urgent matter.

					54% of employers have increased wages to either keep talent or to recruit new employees, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 54% of employers have increased wages to either keep talent or to recruit new employees: A survey looking at how employers are keeping the talent they currently have and the process behind recruiting new employees, has uncovered that 54% of organisations have increased the salaries they offer, to maintain the workforce they currently have and to recruit new talent.   The twenty-third annual study by the CIPD and Omni RMS polled over 1,000 HR professionals during a time of economic pressure and a skills shortage. There are many ways for businesses to recruit new talent, however, some are more favourable than others, found the study.   One of the more common ways to attract employees is to offer a hybrid/remote working pattern, with 68% of those surveyed stating this method has helped them retain and recruit talent.   In addition, of those who had recruited within the last 12 months, three in 10 said the option for flexible working is one of the most effective recruitment methods.   With the challenges that face human resource professionals, almost half said the use of remote/flexible working has increased over the past few years and they do not expect it to decrease or stop over the next year.   Clair McCartney, senior resourcing and inclusion advisor for the CIPD, said: 'Businesses are facing some of the most challenging times imaginable in the coming year, with a cost-of-living crisis and potential recession. It is now more important than ever to be proactive with workforce planning and to develop compelling offerings to attract and retain a diverse group of employees. Employers won't be able to afford continued pay increases, but they have an array of other options available to them to continue attracting and retaining staff.'

					Three in 10 teachers spent 10 or more extra days preparing students for GCSE exams, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Three in 10 teachers spent 10 or more extra days preparing students for GCSE exams: A study has uncovered that 30% of secondary school teachers spent 10 or more extra days preparing their pupils for their GCSE exams; with 31% of respondents not altering their students' preparations.   The survey by Tes polled over 900 teachers, heads of department and school leaders as exams returned to normal after two years of teacher and centre-assessed grades. Furthermore, 89% of teachers said they were either 'concerned' or' very concerned' about results day.   Just 8% of respondents said they were not worried about the exam results with a further 3% saying they weren't sure.    The North East had the greatest number of teachers who were 'very concerned' about pupil grades (64%), whilst the region with the fewest teachers saying that they were 'very concerned' was the South East.   In an attempt to reduce the impact of the pandemic on school children, more information was given to GCSE students in February about their exams, with the aim of helping them focus on their revision. However, 35% of those surveyed said the information they received was 'useless'.   One of the reasons given for this view was that many teachers feel the additional information about exams should have been presented earlier.   A spokesperson for Ofqual, said: "Our chief regulator, who was appointed last September, has visited schools and met students across the country. We have found that they have welcomed the return of exams as well as the unprecedented package of support that was put in place in light of the impact of the pandemic."

When looking at the reasons behind using new types of technology, 65% cited 'improved efficiency' as a key factor; with 44% saying it 'saved them money'. In addition, 39% said the move to a more digital way of working helped with their 'customer experience'.   There have been some big changes in the type and amount of technology used, according to the research, with 76% saying they sped up digital development due to the pandemic. Furthermore, 36% of business leaders said that the introduction of new technologies has helped with remote or hybrid working.   Improved sustainability was cited as a key benefit by 36% of business leaders, with 32% saying improved transparency is a main factor in adopting a more digital way of working. In addition, 27% of business leaders found their employee engagement increased when using more technologies.   Augmented reality is a relatively new technology, however, more than a fifth (21%) of business leaders said they have started to use it in their business. Furthermore, artificial intelligence and machine learning have seen an increase in use, with three in 10 saying they are now using the technologies.   Simon Kearsley, Chief Executive of BluQube, said: 'By using the right innovative technologies to automate and streamline time-consuming, repetitive tasks, businesses can unlock the true potential of their staff, and free up team time and headspace to focus on the more strategic tasks.'

					On average, employees lose 54 minutes of work time every week due to IT issues, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 On average, employees lose 54 minutes of work time every week due to IT issues: A survey into how companies use digital infrastructure in the workplace has uncovered that their employees lose an average of 54 minutes per week of work time because of tech problems.   The Lakeside Software study polled 600 executives, IT leaders and employees about how their workplace implements technology. Over the past two years, remote working has become an important part of 'office' life, prompting an increasing number of employers questioning the productivity of remote working.   When looking at DEX (digital employee experience), the survey found that just one in five executive leaders believe there needs to be major improvements to DEX. In addition, 52% stated that DEX is important and should be a top priority for management.   Furthermore, 57% of executives and IT leaders said that their companies are in the early stages of measuring and managing DEX, with a further 35% stating they have not started measuring it at all.   Executive leaders may be underestimating the importance of digital employee experience, suggests the findings, with 36% of employees saying they had considered leaving due to the issue; with 14% saying they already had.    When asked about how much downtime their company experienced each week, it was found that organisations with high levels of DEX encounter an average of 30 minutes per week. On the other hand, companies with lower levels of DEX experienced almost three times as much downtime (128 minutes) per week.   Traci Palmer, Vice President of People and Organization Capability for Citrix, said: 'Work and the office used to be synonymous. But work isn't a place anymore. It is wherever people perform at their best. And that can be at home, in the office, on the road, and anywhere in between. Companies need to recognize this, and instead of focusing on physical office locations, create work-from-anywhere experiences powered by digital workspace solutions.'

					Over £1 billion was stolen from victims who were tricked into authorised push payment (APP) fraud, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over £1 billion was stolen from victims who were tricked into authorised push payment (APP) fraud: A survey into the level of trust customers have when shopping online has uncovered that around £1.3 billion was taken from victims of authorised push payment fraud in 2021; up 27% from the year before.   The study by Menlo Security polled the British public about their online activity and their biggest fears whilst browsing the web. In addition, the report uses figures from UK Finance in an attempt to further explain the findings.   When asked what their biggest fear is regarding online hacks, 55% of respondents said they are more worried about their money being stolen; with just under a quarter saying they are more worried about their identity being taken.   The cost of living crisis has increased concerns about being financially scammed online, with 44% of those surveyed reporting that they are worried about online shopping fraud the most; ahead of phishing emails (27%), social media scams (17%), and catfishing while online dating (13%).   In an attempt to counter online scams, many people will ask for advice from people they know, found the research, with just over half the  respondents polled  saying they trust their family and friends the most. In addition, 21% said they trust their work colleagues with online payments and a further 15% saying they trust news sources.   It is now well understood that scammers may pose as well-known companies to gain the trust of their victims. The study found that four in 10 respondents said they had been scammed from someone posing as a postal or delivery company, with a further 37% saying they had received bogus messages from alleged public sector services; such as the NHS, HMRC or the Government.   Tom Mcvey, Solution Architecht for Menlo Security, said: 'Prevention tactics are an important way of stopping attacks in their tracks before they have an opportunity to reach you. Password security and virus protection can help, but they don't stop you from being a target. A far more effective method is through isolation technology, which essentially wraps a secure bubble around you whilst using any web browser.'

				<description>
					 63% of Brits say they regularly read, making it the nation's most popular form of physical art engagement: An annual survey into how the British public spend their free time has uncovered that almost two-thirds of people aged 16 and above say they choose to read magazines and books; making it the most popular arts-based pastime in the UK.   The Participation Survey by Gov.UK polled over 33,000 respondents about their participation in DCMS (digital, culture, media and sport) sectors, to illicit the most recent trends. Almost nine in 10 (87%) said they physically engaged in DMCS sectors, with 27% engaging digitally.   Attending live events was found to be a popular way for people to participate in the arts, with 38% of respondents going to the cinema, while 19% said they enjoy attending live music events. A further 18% reported  enjoying watching theatrical performances.   When asked about what they like to do online in their spare time, 36% said they enjoy playing video games; with a further 15% stating they enjoy watching a pre-recorded music or dance event. In addition, one in 10 participants enjoy watching an event being live-streamed.   The study also looked at reasons why people might choose to not attend events or participate in DCMS sectors, with around 28% saying they have 'no interest'. Furthermore, 26% say they are worried about COVID and health implications.   Despite almost two-thirds of Brits enjoying reading, the research found that just two in 10 British adults have engaged with their local library in the last year.

					38% of Universal Credit claimants state they have gone a whole day with little or no food due to money, according to survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 38% of Universal Credit claimants state they have gone a whole day with little or no food due to money: A survey into people's eating habits has uncovered that almost four in 10 Brits who have made a Universal Credit Claim have admitted to either not eating, or eating very little for a whole day over the last month.   The study by YouGov for Trussell Trust polled over 1,800 respondents, to uncover how the cost-of-living crisis has affected people's diets. Furthermore, two in 10 respondents said they could not cook hot food due to the cost of using their cooker and utilities.   In addition to skipping at least one meal in the last month (40%) seven out of 10 people surveyed who received their cost-of-living payment in late July, said they had already spent it in full; with 64% saying they had spent the £326 on food.   The cost-of-living crisis has affected people in different ways, with 34% of participants saying they had fallen into debt as a result. Furthermore, 23% said they hadn't been able to make essential travel to essential appointments (doctor's, dentist etc.), due to not being able to afford public transport or fuel.   Data from the Office for National Statistics has shown that salaries in many areas of the UK are not keeping up with the rate of inflation; with wages falling by an average of 4% when measured against inflation.   On the other hand, some areas of the UK saw  salaries increase, with the average wage of those living in London increasing by 5% from March to June of 2022.   Emma Revie, Chief Executive for Trussell Trust, said: "We are deeply concerned that 40% of people claiming Universal Credit are skipping meals, as winter approaches, and this is only going to get worse for people who already struggling to get by."

				<description>
					 Over a quarter of Brits said they are less likely to cook a Sunday roast due to rising costs: A recent study into how the cost-of-living crisis has affected the public's shopping and cooking habits has found that 26% of respondents said they are less likely to cook a Sunday roast; due to rising energy bills.   The annual BBC Good Food Nation survey polled over 3,000 Brits from the age of five years old and above to uncover how the British public have altered their shopping and cooking to help save money. The rising cost-of-living has impacted everyone in different ways, with shopping and food being two of the most affected sectors.   When asked about other ways they save money through food, 28% said they plan their meals to use cheaper ingredients and so they waste less food. In addition, 23% batch cooking as their preferred way to spend less with a further 22% saying they freeze their batch bakes and heat them up at a later date.   Not using kitchen appliances is also a common way to save money, with 18% saying they no longer switch the oven on. In addition, one in five stated they are baking less biscuits and cakes due to the cost of energy.   The study also looked at how parents could alter what their children eat, with 15% of respondents saying they make their children packed lunches, instead of paying for school dinners.   The research also found that just over a fifth of respondents (22%) have bought less alcohol to cost cut and one in five are buying less meat. Dairy products, such as cream (13%) and butter (11%), have also seen a slight decrease in sales.

					Seven in 10 UK businesses are either using or plan to use 5G services in the near future, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Seven in 10 UK businesses are either using or plan to use 5G services in the near future: A survey into the effects of using 5G networks on different industries within the UK has uncovered that 70% of businesses are either already using 5G networks, or plan to use them soon. However, many cited 'cost' as a major barrier to implementing 5G services.   There are many further obstacles stopping more companies from implementing 5G services, according to the study, with 53% saying that their organisation does not have enough knowledge to use 5G solutions effectively. On the other hand, 63% cite the complexity and cost of infrastructure, installation, and integration as the main challenges when looking at moving towards 5G services.   The study by Coleman Parkes polled around 300 IT Decision Makers earlier this year, with respondents working within the Creative industries, Manufacturing, Transport and Logistics, and Health and Social Care. The businesses from which the respondents worked for had an average of 590 employees.   When asked about the main reasons for their company's move towards using 5G networks, two-thirds said it would help them achieve their corporate sustainability goals. Furthermore, seven in 10 said they hope it will give them an advantage over their competitors, with 65% thinking it will give their customers a better experience.   However, some companies said they need further incentives before committing to 5G solutions, with two-thirds reporting that industry-specific benefits could help them to invest.   Bob Driver, head of UK5G, said: "5G, along with other forms of advanced communications, has the potential to transform business models, generate new revenue streams by unleashing the Internet of Things, and give organisations new insights through data that enable them to improve the service they provide for customers."

					39% of tradeswomen say they're not taken seriously in the trades industry because of their gender, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 39% of tradeswomen say they're not taken seriously in the trades industry because of their gender: A recent survey into what it's like to be a woman in the trades industry has revealed that four in 10 tradeswomen feel they're not taken as seriously as men due to their gender. Furthermore, one in 10 say they have been refused jobs because they are a woman.   The study by Rated People polled women in the trades industry about their experiences and how they feel they differ from tradesmen. The survey found that one in seven had personal safety concerns while working.   When looking at which specific job has the most female workers, it was found that eight in 10 cleaners are women, with every other profession having more men than women. Just 1% of carpenters and joiners are women, found the survey, with male carpenters getting paid almost double that of a female carpenter.   On the other hand, 8% of the female participants said that they have been able to help female clients who do not feel safe having a tradesman do the work. Three in 10 women said they would feel more comfortable hiring a female tradesperson, rather than a male tradesperson.   Although there were over 27,000 searches for painters last year, just 32% of women said they would consider becoming a tradeswoman, compared to 47% of men.    The survey also found that the number of women participating in trade courses has gone up by 27%.

					A quarter of construction firms have fallen victim to fraud over the last year, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 A quarter of construction firms have fallen victim of fraud over the last year: A recent survey of people working in the construction industry has uncovered that 25% of construction firms have experienced some sort of scam in the last 12 months, however, two in five chose not to report it to the authorities, suggesting that it is more prevalent than the police are aware of.   The study by Herts Tool observed 39 companies in the UK to uncover how fraud is impacting British construction companies. In addition, the survey found that larger companies are twice as likely to be targeted and to experience fraudulent activity.   When asked what type of fraud they had been a victim of, three in five companies said their providers had changed the quality of the product. This response was the top answer cited making it the most common way to defraud a company. In addition, one in five firms said they had experienced a form of corruption such as bid rigging or bribery.    At least two in 10 construction firms stated that they had experienced at least one of the following fraudulent practices: falsifying expense reimbursement, false billing, contractors lying about qualifications, purchase fraud or stealing tools for other projects.   One of the bigger issues caused by fraud was that four in 10 companies almost faced closure, with three in 10 stating they had lost employees as a result.

					 Half of secondary school teachers say they did not go on a school trip in the last academic year: A survey has uncovered that half of secondary school teachers did not go on a school trip over the last 12 months; compared to just 15% of primary school teachers. Furthermore, just one in 10 of primary and secondary school teachers don't enjoy going on trips, according to the findings.   The study by TeacherTapp recently polled teachers of all age groups in the UK in an attempt to find out more about the last academic year. The survey found that 82% of primary school teachers enjoy going school trips, with 9% saying they aren't sure.   When asked about their views on teacher salaries, just 1% said teachers are paid the right amount, with 8% saying their wages should be increased by over 12%. In addition, a third of participants said a 4-6% increase would be right.   The results were slightly different when the participants were given a bit of context around teacher's wages, with four in 10 saying pay should be increased by 10-12% - the expected rate of inflation.   The study also asked primary school teachers, which exams they would scrap, with just over four in 10 saying they would remove Year 6 SATs. Furthermore, a higher percentage of headteachers said they would scrap EYFS baseline tests (21%) than classroom teachers (15%).   Like most professions, many teachers hold meetings within their department; however, on average 4% stated they do not have regular meetings. On the other hand, a third of Science, Maths and English teachers said they hold meetings within their department, every week.   Teachers of creative subjects, such as Art or Design and Technology, are less likely to meet, found the survey, with 6% saying they do not hold department meetings.

					Listening to music is a better solution to reducing stress for women than comfort eating, according to survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Listening to music is a better solution to reducing stress for women than comfort eating: A study into how British women cope with stress has uncovered that listening to particular artists and songs can help to reduce stress more than eating. The report combined many surveys, each polling 120 women to find out the best ways to reduce stress.   The studies by De Montfort University in Leicester involved asking participants for the song they listen to most when they're feeling sad, stressed or in need of distraction. The song selected by the participant was then played back to them while they were eating, under trial conditions.   Specific songs, such as: Amy Winehouse's Back to Black, Eminem's Mockingbird and Linkin Park's In The End, were found to be more popular choices by participants. In addition, the study found that those observed whilst they consumed food ate about a third less when listening to songs that provide comfort, such as: Coldplay's Fix You and Sam Smith's Lay Me Down.   Furthermore, women who were listening to songs that expressed sadness or anger ate half the amount of food offered compared to those not listening to any music.   When people become stressed or sad, it is common to reach for comfort food as it releases hormones such as dopamine and serotonin. The researchers aren't sure what makes people feel more relaxed when listening to music, however, they believe that other 'happy' hormones may be released.   Dr Helen Coulthard, an expert in eating behaviour at De Montfort University, said: "Unconsciously, we might grab food because it is giving us a positive dopamine, serotonin, boost that makes us feel better. But think about alternatives ' like music (which) can equally give you a boost and make you feel better when you're sad or stressed."

					23% of Britons will not turn their heating on this winter, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 23% of Britons will not turn their heating on this winter: A recent survey into how the UK public are planning to deal with the cost-of-living crisis over winter, has uncovered that nearly a quarter of Brits are planning to not turn their heating on when the colder weather sets in. This figure rose to 27% when there will be children at home.   The study by the Liberal Democrats polled the British population about their upcoming energy usage after Ofgem announced that the energy price cap would rise to 80%; meaning, on average, the UK household will pay £3,549 per month for gas and electric.   Since 1957, less than 7% of the average UK family's spending has gone on energy bills, with the figure being around 4% in 2017. However, this is expected to rise to 11% in October, with families on lesser incomes being most effected.   In addition to this rise in household bills, Ofgem predicts the cost of gas and electric will rise to £6,616 for the average household by April 2023 ' almost a 400% increase from winter 2019.   A further YouGov study into the matter uncovered that 47% of Conservative voters are in favour of renationalising the energy industry; with 53% of Labour voters from the North East and Midlands with the same opinion. Furthermore, according to the survey, the British public have more trust in Labour's ability to combat high inflation, than they do in the Conservative party.   A spokesman for the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, said: "Huge progress has already been made, with the number of homes with an energy efficiency rating of C or above at 46% and rising, up from just 14% in 2010. This is benefiting tens of thousands of homes and delivering average savings of £300 a year on energy bills."

					 35% of young people get their news from social media sites, including YouTube and TikTok: A study into how and where children learn about news stories has uncovered that over a third of young people get the information from social media sites; with the most common being TikTok (30%) and YouTube (23%). Facebook (19%) and Instagram (13%) were also cited as main sources of information for children.   The survey by the BBC polled over 2,000 young people between the ages of 11 and 16, as part of BBC Bitesize's campaign: The Other Side Of The Story ' set up to help children navigate between fake and real news.   Despite TikTok being the most favourable place for young people to look for news, just 31% of those surveyed said they trust what they read on the platform. In addition, half of participants said they trusted what they read in the newspaper, slightly less than those who stated they trust the news on YouTube.   The BBC was found to be trusted by 67% of respondents, with ITV (65%) and Channel 4 (56%) being the second and third most trusted sites. The poll also found that more young people believe the news they read on websites (9%) than in newspapers (3%).   When asked about the individuals they trust the most, 36% of respondents said their parents; with more opting to believe influencers (5%) than politicians (1%). In recent years, influencers have become more involved in current affairs, using their platform and following to address major issues.   Helen Foulkes, head of BBC education, said: 'The results show how confused a lot of young people are about where to get reliable information. They're moving away from traditional news sources but they're not sure whether what they see and hear in other places can be trusted.'

					27% of GP partners said they have thought about handing their contract back over the last year, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 27% of GP partners said they have thought about handing their contract back over the last year: Recent research has uncovered that over a quarter (27%) of British GPs have considered handing back their contract over the last 12 months.   The study by Pulse polled over 800 UK GPs at the start of 2022 and uncovered that a little over 1% said they already work for a private provider on a part time basis; with even fewer stating they were employed by a private provider full time.   The Government has a target of increasing the number of GPs in Britain by 6,000, with an additional 26,000 practice staff by 2024. Furthermore, over four in 10 partner (41%) would 'consider becoming a salaried GP if given the correct offer'.   This target was made to encourage more people to work as GPs for the NHS; with around half of GPs being salaried or locum. The main reasons cited for this change were chronic underfunding and feeling overworked.   In addition, 47% of GPs would 'consider working for an online private GP service if the terms were acceptable'; with 9% saying they would do so on a full-time basis. On the other hand, 42% of those surveyed said they would not consider an online private GP service for employment, leaving 11% unsure.

					68% of girls in the UK fear they will be judged if they participate in sports, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 68% of girls in the UK fear they will be judged if they participate in sports: A survey into the number of girls in the UK that are choosing to stop playing sports, and why, has uncovered that over two-thirds (68%) are worried about participating due to feeling judged.   The study by Women in Sport polled over 4,000 teenagers and the organisation estimates that over one million girls in the UK lose interest in sports. Furthermore, eight in 10 'sporty' girls state they don't participate in sports when on their period, with 73% saying they don't like others watching them while they take part.   When looking at the difference between teenage girls and teenage boys, the study found that just 37% of 11-16-year-old girls enjoy participating in sports, compared to 54% of boys the same age. In addition, the disparity between girls and boys in sport is further exaggerated when looking at 17-18-year-olds; with six in 10 boys saying they participate in physical activity, compared to three in 10 girls.   The study also found that external factors such as the pandemic have had an impact on girl's participation in sport; with many being worried about their appearance and struggling with mental health.   Alongside not wanting to be judged by spectators, a lack of confidence was cited by girls as a main reason for not participating in sports (61%), while almost half (47%) said that they were too busy with school work to focus on other hobbies.   Stephanie Hilborne, Chief Executive of Women in Sport, said: "It's an absolute travesty that teenage girls are being pushed out of sport at such a scale. It is well documented that taking part in physical activity can have a profound and positive effect on mental wellbeing as well as providing many pivotal life skills such as resilience, teamwork and communication."

				<description>
					 A quarter of 18-24-year-olds plan to spend more on travel products and services over the next year: A study into the travel plans of people in the UK has uncovered that 26% of Gen Z respondents intend to spend more on travel services and products in the next 12 months; while just 15% of those aged 55 and over plan to do the same.   In addition, 21% of people of all ages, globally, plan to spend more on their holidays and travelling over the next year.   The poll by YouGov was commissioned in April of this year and compared data between age groups and nationalities. The survey found that Gen Z respondents in Britain (44%) are most likely to spend more on travelling over the next 12 months, than any other nation.   In comparison, just over a quarter (26%) of Gen Z respondents globally said they intend to spend more travelling this year.    When asked about where they intend to take their next holiday, 45% of Gen Z participants globally said they are planning a trip domestically; with four in 10 Gen Z Brits stating the same. Almost six in 10 Indonesian respondents (57%) said they were planning a holiday within Indonesia, making it the most popular domestic holiday among Gen Z.   On the other hand, a third of Gen Z Brits plan to travel abroad in the next year, with four in 10 saying they typically stay in an accommodation with three stars or less.   The survey also looked at obstacles that may stop people from travelling, with 37% of Gen Z Brits citing the cost of travel as a big drawback. Furthermore, the cost of accommodation was stated by a quarter of Gen Z respondents  as a main obstacle when booking a holiday.

					Tower Bridge named as the most popular place to take social media photos in the UK, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Tower Bridge named as the most popular place to take social media photos in the UK: A survey into which British tourist locations feature the most in social media posts has uncovered that Tower Bridge in London featured in over 5.5 million posts on Instagram and Facebook; making the landmark the most Instagram-worthy location in the UK.   The study by Grand Central Rail polled 2,000 British adults and asked for their recommendations for a social media post, as well as what factors were important when deciding a day-trip with family and friends.    London was cited by many as the best location for a post, with the National History Museum (2.6 million posts) and the Shard (2.1 million posts) being second and third most popular respectively. Outside the capital, Stonehenge and Brighton Palace Pier both had 1.2 million posts on Instagram and Facebook.   While many people are drawn to historic sites that they see on social media, one in 10 of those surveyed said they prefer to go to less well-known places, so as to avoid the crowds and get the best photos possible.   There were many other factors cited by participants which might impact their desire to visit a certain landmarkincludin, with one of these being cost. On average, UK adults are prepared to spend almost £32 per person to visit a site; while a 54% would prefer to spend less than £25 per person.   When asked about which famous landmarks they have visited and which they would like to visit, just 5% said they had visited Giant's Causeway in Northern Island, with a quarter stating they would like to visit in the future.    Furthermore, the majority of participants had visited King's Cross station in London (56%), while 48% said they had been to the National History Museum. The third and fourth most popular location in the UK were York Minster (39%) and Brighton Pier (38%).

				<description>
					 Two-thirds of primary school teachers feel confident in supporting children with LGBT+ matters: A recent study has uncovered that 66% of primary school teachers feel they can help their students with LGBT+ matters, leaving a third unconfident in supporting children in this area.   The survey by TeacherTapp polled just under 7,000 teachers in both primary and secondary schools about Pride activities during Pride month in June 2022. The study found that three in 10 primary school teachers had heard their students offer support or kind words to their LGBT+ friends, with 6% having heard of such behaviour through colleagues.   When asked about what Pride events had happened in their school, 15% of primary school teachers said they had engaged in activities to celebrate Pride month or educate their students about the LGBT+ community; an increase of 3% from 2021 and 12% from 2019.   Secondary schools appear to place Pride events higher on their agenda, according to the research, with 56% of teachers saying their school was doing something for Pride month; a 6% increase from 2021 and a 38% increase from 2018. In addition, eight in 10 secondary school staff reported feeling confident in their ability to help LGBT+ matters amongst their students.   The most commonly cited form of Pride activity in secondary schools was talking about the subject in lessons (42%), with running assemblies dedicated the Pride month (34%) also being common. In addition, 5% of secondary school teachers say their school has participated in wider community events, such as a Pride march.   Furthermore, seven in 10 secondary school teachers reported hearing their students say kind words to their LGBT+ friends. On the other hand, secondary school teachers were almost twice as likely to hear students use derogatory terms related to gender identity or sexuality as primary school teachers.

Of the firms that had experienced a cyber-attack in the last two years, three in 10 had experienced more than two, with 5% stating they had five or more attacks over the last 24 months.   The study was conducted by Egnyte in partnership with Building Magazine and Digital Construction Week and aimed to uncover the issue around ransomware attacks against environmental firms; with the results being concerning for the sector.   Ransomware is a type of malware occurs and the perpetrator threatens to release the victim's information. The offender then requests money to ensure the information isn't released.   When asked about their opinions on the problem, 87% said they have concerns about ransomware attacks; however, just over seven in 10 (71%) said their strategy to recover from a cyber-attack is either 'weak' or 'improvable'.   Ronen Vengosh, vice president of architecture, engineering  construction at Egnyte, said: "Ransomware attacks can bring commercial operations to a standstill, jeopardising projects and tarnishing brand reputations in the process. To protect their business, UK firms need to enable truly holistic defence programmes ' featuring a combination of prevention strategies, content governance, and end-user education ' to ensure they can stay one step ahead of potential threats like ransomware attacks.'

					61% of financial service organisations are using AI, or plan to in the future, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 61% of financial service organisations are using AI, or plan to in the future: A recent survey into the use of artificial intelligence in financial services has revealed that over six in 10 companies in the sector are using, or are planning to use AI in the future. However, almost a third (31%) say they are still waiting for a return on their investment when it comes to AI.    Furthermore, 35% said they were in a 'test-and-learn' phase of AI adoption showing room for growth in the sector.   The survey, by Quantexa and AI Forum, polled 640 senior business and technology managers with most coming from North America (56%) and Europe (31%). The study aimed to understand how AI is used in companies today, and how they plan to use it in the future.   When asked about the reasons for not using artificial intelligence in the near future,  respondents cited 'data readiness', the 'ability to use internal and external data', and 'making AI operational' as the three main issues.   The study also looked into the main uses for AI, with risk detection and customer onboarding accounting for 29% of all primary usage.   Although many people are not seeing a big enough return on investment through artificial intelligence, 41% of those surveyed said their ROI was good; with 8% stating an outstanding return.   Vishal Marria, Chief Executive and Founder of Quantexa, said: 'AI and technological advances such as entity resolution are helping close this data decision gap in a strategic and measured way, allowing organizations to connect siloed data to create a meaningful connected view, that directly leads to higher accuracy, productivity and ultimately trusted decision making.'

					77% of UK SMEs either do not have or are unsure of their strategies to decrease their carbon emissions, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					   77% of UK SMEs either do not have or are unsure of their strategies to decrease their carbon emissions: A survey into business leaders' favoured approaches to reducing their carbon emissions has found that almost eight in 10 are not aware of or do not have a strategy. Furthermore, around half of those surveyed said they didn't know what the term 'net-zero' meant.       The study, by YouGov for Lloyds Bank, polled of over 1,000 SME businesses in the UK at the start of 2022 and aimed to illicit their approaches to reducing carbon emissions and net-zero. The survey found that just over three-quarters (76%) do not have comprehensive strategies to tackling the issue ' with many stating they lacked the in-house capabilities and funds to put in place such strategies.       When asked about whether they knew about their own carbon footprint, just 12% said they had calculated their carbon footprint. In addition, a third said their lack of knowledge meant they could not gain a better understanding of the problem, with a quarter saying they didn't have the funds or the time to improve their knowledge.       The issue of how to reduce carbon emissions is further exemplified with over 75% of participants saying they do not have ambitious enough targets to reach net-zero. Many stated a lack of finance, time, and understanding as the main reasons for not having an ambitious enough target.       In addition, there are over five and a half million SMEs in the UK, meaning over four million SMEs not have net-zero targets which are not challenging enough.       Adam Rainey, commercial director of business banking for Lloyds Bank, said: "While our nation's small businesses recognise the importance of tackling climate change, there are real issues with understanding how to get there ' including calculating carbon emissions and even the meaning of net-zero. Fortunately, there's a whole host of support available to help businesses make their first steps in becoming greener."

					42% of Brits have an unused internet router in their homes; leaving around 22 million redundant ISP routers in the UK, survey reveals

				<description>
					 42% of Brits have an unused internet router in their homes; leaving around 22 million redundant ISP routers in the UK: A recent survey, into how companies and the British public can use routers better, has revealed that four in 10 (42%) have an internet router that they no longer use, with experts estimating there are 22 million redundant ISP routers in UK homes.   Furthermore, 14% of those surveyed said they have multiple unused routers in the home.   When asked about why they have so many routers in their house, 59% said they didn't know how to recycle their old router, with a further 15% saying they have a second router sent to them by their internet service provider, alongside their older, working router.   The study by Uswitch polled 2,000 UK adults in October 2021 to find out if there is a more preferable way for Brits to get internet into their homes. The research uncovered that three-quarters of British adults want a universal router that can be used by any internet service provider; in order to reduce the amount of e-waste.   Six in 10 consumers believe bigger companies can do more to help save the planet, with Sky Broadband being voted as being the poorest when it comes to helping customers recycle their old routers.   One of the reasons for so many redundant internet routers could be the desire to have the best connection possible. The advancements in technology allow for better internet routers to be made, meaning there are many older routers not in use.

				<description>
					 Premier Inn ranks top hotel chain in Britain, with an average customer score of 79%: A recent survey of the hospitality industry has revealed that when it comes to satisfaction, customers gave Premier Inn an average score of 79%, making the company the most popular big hotel chain in the UK.   The study by Which? polled over 2,300 members of the public from July 2020 to October 2021, and asked them to rank the hotels in many areas, including bathrooms, cleanliness, and value for money. The survey also looked at a range of hotel chains, with 24 large and 6 small chains being observed.   Although Premier Inn was ranked as the best hotel chain, the smaller chain, Hotel du Vin, achieved an average customer score of 80%; with both hotels costing an average of £150 for a one-night stay.    For the ninth year in a row, Britannia Hotels ranked as the worst hotel chain in the UK with an average customer satisfaction score of 49%. Furthermore, four in 10 of those surveyed had visited a Britannia hotel with 51% saying they had encountered an issue during their stay; cleanliness being the most common problem.   Mercure hotels were ranked just above Britannia with an average customer rating of 52%. However, like Britannia, they received a two-star rating for cleanliness alongside bathrooms, communal areas and value for money.   Rory Boland, travel editor for Which? said: 'The impressive, budget-friendly Premier Inn is our pick of the large chains, and Hotel du Vin offers high quality stays in interesting locations.'

					The more time teenagers spend on social media, the less likely they are to be satisfied with their life, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 The more time teenagers spend on social media, the less likely they are to be satisfied with their life: A recent survey has uncovered that 19-year-olds are less likely to be content with their life if they spend a significant amount of time on social media. Furthermore, 11 to 13-year-old girls and 14 to 15-year-old boys who spent a significant amount of time using social media were least likely to say they were satisfied with life.   Scientists theorised that the vulnerability that certain age groups face towards social media is linked to brain, hormonal or social changes during development.   The study was conducted by researchers from the universities of Cambridge and Oxford and the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. They polled over 72,000 people up to seven times between 2011 and 2018, with a follow-up study in the years after to specifically observe 10 to 21-year-olds.   For 16 to 21-year-olds, it was reported that those who spent over seven hours a day on social media were less likely to be satisfied with their situation, than those who spend three hours or less on their phones.   Although there was a correlation between the amount of time spent on social media, life satisfaction and age, the study could not help determine the individuals most likely to be affected.    Professor Bernadk Dubicka, expert in child mental health at the University of Manchester, said: "This study reflects the complexity seen in vulnerable adolescents in clinical practice, and finally moves away from the unhelpful dichotomy about whether social media is or isn't harmful. It will be vital to build on this research to understand both the harmful as well as supportive role of social media in young people's lives."

					56% of UK adults believe they have a healthy diet, with women less likely to be happy with their eating habits, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 56% of UK adults believe they have a healthy diet, with women less likely to be happy with their eating habits: A recent survey into Brit's eating habits has uncovered that 56% of adults think their relationship with food is good, with women (49%) less likely to be happy with their diet than men (64%).   The study, by Benenden Health, studied 1,000 British adults to find out what they think about the diets they have. The survey found some differences in ages, with younger people (43%) less likely to feel happy about their eating habits than older generations.   Many experts say they believe discussions about body image in today's society has created unreal expectations for younger generations, causing them to feel worse about the way they look. Filters can cause people to appear differently to how they do in 'normal life' in order to achieve the perceived 'perfect' look.   When asked about how their mental wellbeing has changed over the past few years, around two-fifths of respondents (42%) said they had felt worse since the start of the pandemic.    According to the research, the average age for someone to think about dieting or losing weight is 30, with a quarter of those surveyed saying they first thought about it between the ages of 16 and 25-years-old. Just over a fifth (22%) of Brits said they have never considered losing weight or going on a diet.    The research also found that losing weight does not always lead to people feeling happier about themselves. Three-quarters of survey participants said they have tried to lose weight using various diets, with just one in five (21%) saying it made them feel happier.   Cheryl Lythgoe, matron at Benenden Health, said: 'It is no great surprise to find that so many individuals in the UK have an unhealthy relationship with food. From a young age ' especially for more recent generations - we are surrounded by conversations about body image, diets and comparisons with others.'

					10 UK art museums ranked in the top 100 most visited art museums in the world, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 10 UK art museums ranked in the top 100 most visited art museums in the world: A recent survey into the most popular art museums in the world has uncovered that 10 of the top 100 are located in the UK. Paris (10) is the only city that has more museums in the top 100 than London (8), with the World Museum in Liverpool and the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh also included in the list.   The study by the Art Newspaper, found that there were 71 million visitors to art museums around the world in 2021, an increase from the 54 million in 2020. However, the pandemic is still having a significant impact, found the research, as levels are still down on the 230 million people who visited art museums in 2019.   Although the UK has the most museums within the top 100, Russia has four of the top 10 most visited art museums; located in Moscow and St Petersburg. The most visited UK museum in 2021 was the British Museum in London with just over 1.3million visitors; an increase of 4% from 2020.    While the pandemic affected all art museums differently, Europe was hit the worst, according to the data, with British, Dutch and German art museums being shut for an average of 142 days over the year.    The National Gallery recorded the greatest decrease in visitors over the last couple of years, with a fall of 41% from 2020, and a drop of 88% from 2019. Despite being open for the same number of days in 2021, the British Museum had significantly more visitors.   When comparing the number of visitors in 2020 and 2021, the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow was shown to have had the greatest increase, rising by 421%. On the other hand, the Faberge Museum in St Petersburg saw the greatest decrease in attendees, with -42%.

					The UK ranked as the fourth best nation to be a software engineer, behind America, Switzerland and Canada, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 The UK ranked as the fourth best nation to be a software engineer, behind America, Switzerland and Canada: A recent survey into the average annual salaries of software engineers from different nations has uncovered that the UK offers the fourth best salary (£54,801 per annum). The US ranked top, with an average annual salary of £76,521.   Switzerland and Canada complete the top three with average salaries of £72,198 and £56,819 respectively per annum.   The poll by Codingame observed participants from their community of over two-million developers and tech recruiters, in an attempt to uncover more about the average salaries in the industry. The study also found that over four in 10 American respondents earned over £80,000 per year, with 5% saying their salary was over £160,000 per year.   While their average salary in the UK might be lower than those in the US, Switzerland and Canada, software engineers still earn more than the national average, according to the research.   In contrast, the study also identified the countries that offer the lowest wages for the industry, with Tunisia ranking bottom with an average salary of £13,405 per annum. Furthermore, Morocco and India were listed as the countries with the second and third lowest wages for software engineers, with average annual salaries of £14,620 and £15,605 respectively.   Europe was shown to be the best continent to be a software engineer, with five of the top 10 nations being in Europe. Behind Switzerland and the UK, Germany ranked as the next best European country, in sixth, with an average annual salary of £48,995.   France and Spain ranked in as ninth and tenth position, with average annual salaries of £38,003 and £31,492 respectively.   Although it may seem like software engineers should apply their trade in the US, the study does not take into account the cost-of-living in each individual country; which could explain the higher salaries in certain places.

					Increasing inflation and the cost-of-living crisis having effect on sustainable shopping, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Increasing inflation and cost-of-living crisis having effect on sustainable shopping: A recent study into people's shopping habits has uncovered that rising costs are having a significant effect on their ability to shop sustainably. However, one in five of UK shoppers said that sustainable shopping was most important to them.   In addition, one in five UK shoppers and one in four German shoppers followed through with buying more sustainable packaging or foods with local ingredients.   The survey by Quantilope polled 1,200 people from both the UK and Germany to feature in the 2022 consumer trends in sustainability report. They, also, found that three-quarters of respondents said they wanted to start shopping more sustainably.    When asked about which food and drinks brands they choose, eight in 10 Brits said they based their choices on price. However, in Germany, the study found that taste was the leading factor when deciding what brands to buy.   Another disparity between German and British consumers revealed by the survey was that 39% of Germans prioritise buying food with local ingredients; compared to just 19% in the UK.   The study also looked at ways the respondents think they could help support sustainability, with 34% stating they were willing to pay more taxes if the money would be used to help the environment. On the other hand, 39% were opposed to the idea with 27% undecided.   In both the UK and Germany combined, around three-quarters say they actively try to reduce waste (77% of Brits and 71% of Germans). Furthermore, just over half (51%) for both countries say they plan to buy less of items with plastic packaging in the future.   Peter Aschmoneit, chief-executive and co-founder of Quantilope, said: "While consumers expect brands to take responsibility for the sustainability of their products, they are more than willing to do their bit to save the planet. However, there are barriers that need to be removed, or reduced, to make sustainable behaviours easier."

					One in five millennials have changed their diet in an attempt to help the climate, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 One in five millennials have changed their diet in an attempt to help the climate: A recent survey has uncovered that 20% of millennials have altered what they eat as a response to the increasing impact climate change is having; with many choosing plant-based options instead of meat.   The study by Compare by Review asserts that animal products, such as meat and dairy, account for almost half of all greenhouse gas emissions from food. The knowledge of this has resulted in more than half (54%) the respondents polled to identify as 'flexitarian'. The research also highlighted that cutting meat and dairy products from your diet can decrease your food carbon footprint by up to 73%.   The younger generations are also more mindful about how travelling affects the environment, found the survey, with almost half (48%) of millennials anticipating more staycations in the future. In addition, 77% of 18 ' 29-year-olds state sustainability as a key factor when making travel decisions, compared to 48% of those aged 51 or over.   When asked about their driving habits, it was revealed that millennials, on average, drive 2,000 less miles than baby boomers and own fewer vehicles too. Many of the younger respondents also revealed that they choose to cycle rather than drive, with 46% of 18 ' 34-year-olds being of the opinion that prioritising cyclists in cities is important.     Younger generations more likely to have a pet       The research also found that the younger generations will often choose to have a pet, with 62% of pet owners being either millennial or Gen Z; compared to 32% of pet owners being baby boomers.

					90% of British adults think it is up to manufacturers and retailers to take responsibility for recycling plastics, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 90% of British adults think it is up to manufacturers and retailers to take responsibility for recycling plastics: A recent survey into global opinions about plastic waste has revealed that nine in 10 British adults are of the opinion that retailers and manufacturers need to take responsibility for reducing, reusing and recycling plastic waste.   In addition, nine in 10 Brazilian, Chinese and Mexican adults believe manufacturers and retailers should do more to combat plastic waste; with 89% of Swedes believing the same.   The study by Ipsos polled over 20,000 adults, under the age of 75, from 28 countries as part of their Global Advisor Online Platform. The survey also found that almost nine in 10 (89%) Columbians think single-use plastics should be banned, followed by Chile and Mexico (88%).   On the other hand, most Japanese (63%) and many American (45%) adults believe there is still a place for single-use plastics, and it should not be banned.   When asked what measures should be put in place to prevent plastic pollution, 88% say they want an international treaty to combat the issue; with Latin American nations (93%) most likely to agree.     The poll found that a clear majority, in all countries surveyed (82%), prefer products that come with less plastic packaging. However, Japan had the lowest number of people who stated that they prefer less plastic packaging (56%), with America (71%) and the Netherlands (73%) close behind.   Stuart Clarke, Ipsos Australia director, said: "These results make it very clear that there is a strong consensus globally that single-use plastics should be taken out of circulation as quickly as possible. People want to do the right thing. An average of 82 percent of people surveyed want to buy products that minimise plastic packaging. They want that change to happen quickly and they want their governments to support it."

					56% of British engineers have received an increase in pay over the last year, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 56% of British engineers have received an increase in pay over the last year: A recent survey into the engineering sector has uncovered that 56% of UK-based engineers have received a wage increase in the last 12 months, increasing the average salary by over 2% on last year's figures to £58,108.   The study by The Engineer polled nearly 800 permanent and part-time engineers from a range of sectors to illicit trends within the engineering industry. The research also found that food and drink (consumer goods) engineers were the least content with their salary; however, three quarters (74%) said they could see themselves in the same job in five years.   When asked about how happy they were with their current line of work, 42% of engineers said they would consider a career change. In addition, 51% of oil and gas engineers said they would consider leaving the industry, with defence and security (49%) just behind.   On the other hand, the research found that many people enjoy their chosen career, with 75% of material engineers stating they are happy in the role they have. Furthermore 67% of apprentice engineers said they enjoyed their job; despite being paid the least out of all the sub-sectors.   In addition, the sub-sector with the highest average wage was energy/renewable/nuclear engineers with a salary of almost £63,000 per annum. Despite this, just over four in 10 energy/renewable/nuclear engineers are content with the amount of money they are getting.    When asked if they feel valued in their role or not, 61% of apprentice engineers said they do not; with more material engineers feeling as if they are valued (54%).   Robert Harper, managing director of CBSbutler, said: 'We are noticing a spike in the number of vacancies being advertised, and whilst there is also an increase in the number of engineers looking for new roles (be that permanent or contract), that increase is not sufficient to fill all the new vacancies.  We are in the midst of a skills shortage.'

					Three-quarters of English and Welsh adults say they have been enjoying more time outside since the beginning of the pandemic, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Three-quarters of English and Welsh adults say they have been enjoying more time outside since the beginning of the pandemic: A recent survey into what will get more young people to enjoy going outside has revealed that three-quarters of British adults say they have been going outside more since the start of the pandemic. However, the study also uncovered that many do not know the rules they are expected to follow in the countryside.   The poll, by outdoor footwear brand Merrell, surveyed English and Welsh adults to look into how they choose to spend their time outdoors. However, it was revealed that 49% of those surveyed said they didn't know about the Countryside Code, with nearly two-thirds of those being between the ages of 16 and 24-years-old.   The Countryside Code is a set of rules, that you must follow, and guides that you are recommended to follow when enjoying activity in the British countryside. Although the code has been in place for nearly 70 years, the study supports the idea that it should be changed with more and more people choosing to spend time outdoors; especially young people.   Being out in the countryside is proven to increase mental wellbeing, with 43% of 18-35-year-olds believing it has improved their mental health. Furthermore, 83% of young people say they are more likely to spend time outdoors since the start of the pandemic.   Although 51% of those surveyed said they had heard of the Countryside Code, one in 10 said they thought it was a book by a famous author.

					7% of parents admit to 'playing the system' to get their child into a better school, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 7% of parents admit to 'playing the system' to get their child into a better school: A survey by Zoopla has revealed that 7% of parents admit they have used the system to their advantage to get their children into their preferred school.   The poll studied 1,000 parents with children between the ages of four and 16 in the UK and also found that a quarter admit to bending the rules.   Of the parents who say they bent the rules, 16% stated they made a 'voluntary donation' to the school to guarantee a place; with a further 5% offering the school a bribe. Furthermore, 27% said they exaggerated their religious beliefs to get their child into a specific school, or lied about regularly attending religious services.   When looking at the reasons why parents turned to these measures to get their child into a specific school, it was uncovered that housing in the catchment area for high performing schools could cost an extra £82,000.    The research also revealed that another way that parents successfully get their child into a specific school, is to register their son or daughter at a relative's address which resides in the catchment area for that school, with one in 10 admitting to lying about their home address.   The number of schools being rated as 'good' or 'outstanding' has also increased from just 68% in 2010 to 86% in 2021.   The department for Education has said they will increase the number of places at sought-after schools with a £500million grant for schools nationwide.   Geoff Barton, general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders, said: 'The wider issue here is the fact that competitive pressure for school places is often driven by Ofsted ratings with parents chasing places at schools with 'good' or 'outstanding' ratings.'

					68% of businesses in the tourism and hospitality industry say they have recently been in financial difficulty, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 68% of businesses in the tourism and hospitality industry say they have recently been in financial difficulty: A  survey in the tourism and hospitality sector has revealed that nearly seven in 10 businesses believe they are not financially stable, with just over half saying they have between zero and two-months-worth of the cash reserves needed to keep their company in business.   The study by the Scottish Tourism Alliance polled over 1,300 Scottish respondents gaining an accurate representation of the tourism and hospitality industry in Scotland. Of the respondents in the survey, 36% had non-serviced accommodation with just over a quarter (26%) being from the serviced accommodation sector.   In addition, one in 10 of those surveyed were from the food and drink sector (pub, bar, cafeacute; or restaurant), with the sector viewing the retention of the 12.5% VAT rate as a major priority for recovering the tourism and hospitality industry.   When asked what has caused financial worry within their sector, just over half (52%) the respondents polled said they have been impacted by staff shortages, the majority coming from the hospitality sector.   Cancellations   Looking at December 2021, the survey asked respondents what level of cancellations they experienced, with just over a quarter reporting they had received no cancellations (26%), compared to 38% who had experienced less than 50% of cancellations and 37% who recorded more than half of their bookings being cancelled.    Of the companies experiencing more than 50% of bookings cancelled in December 2021, tour and coach operators were the worst affected (49%), followed by food and drink (47%), serviced accommodation (45%) and unserviced accommodation (24%), with attractions (19%) also seeing half of their bookings cancelled.   Looking at the bookings for January to March 2022, the survey revealed that the situation has improved somewhat, with a third of respondents reporting no cancellations (32%), while 44% reported less than 50% cancellations, and a quarter (24%) said they have experienced half of their bookings being cancelled.    Of the companies who have experienced more than 50% of bookings cancelled, tour and coach operators were the worst affected (36%), followed by serviced accommodation (28%), and food and drink (23%). Unserviced accommodation (17%) and attractions (14%) also saw more than half their bookings cancelled.

					41% think that research and development will benefit most from digital transformation, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 41% think that research and development will benefit most from digital transformation: A recent survey has revealed that over four in 10 experts in the pharmaceutical industry believe that research and development will gain the most from digital transformation out of the internal departments.   The study by GlobalData polled 177 pharmaceutical professionals in November and December 2021 and uncovered that marketing and sales was thought to be second most likely to benefit from digital transformation, with 28% of respondents predicting so.   When asked about which technology they think will cause the most disruption to the pharmaceutical industry, four in 10 industry experts said that artificial intelligence will change the industry the most. In addition, just under a quarter (24%) said that the use of big data will disrupt the pharmaceutical industry the most.   Virtual and augmented reality, alongside cloud computing (1%) were thought to become the least disruptive to the pharmaceutical industry; with only 2% believing 3D printing will significantly disrupt the industry.   Of the change that digital transformation will bring, 9% predict that IT will benefit the most from, with 8% of the opinion that logistics will significantly benefit.   Furthermore, both procurement and administration were found to be least likely to benefit, with just 3% and 4% of respondents thinking so. Eight percent (8 %) felt that other internal departments would benefit the most from the change in the pharmaceutical industry.   Robotics, digital media blockchains and application programming interfaces were cited as the most likely technology to cause major disruption to the pharmaceutical industry by 3% of industry experts.    In addition, cybersecurity was thought to be the most disruptive technology to the pharmaceutical sector by 5% of respondents, with 9% of experts citing social media.

					Over four in 10 UK workers would like to start their own business, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over four in 10 UK workers would like to start their own business: A survey has uncovered that 42% of Brits (around 13.5 million workers) dream of creating their own business. Furthermore, three-quarters said their plans to create a new start-up have been accelerated due to the Covid-19 pandemic.   The study, by Quickbooks, polled 14,000 people from the UK (3,500), the U.S. (8,000) and Canada (2,500) in November 2021.   In the UK, London was found to be the region with the most aspiring entrepreneurs, with 64% of survey respondents living in the Capital saying they want to start their own company. This was followed by Northern Ireland (51%) and the North West (48%).   When asked why they want to start their own company, 84% said that they believe small businesses are critical to maintaining and growing the UK economy. Many respondents also shared that they will try to use smaller companies, with 62% saying they will continue to support their local businesses even if inflation means they will need to reduce their spending. Furthermore, half of Brits, Americans and Canadians are planning to spend more at smaller businesses in 2022, the survey found.   More than six in 10 (63%) UK respondents reported that they would use their savings to fund their new company, with a further 31% saying they would seek extra funding once their business was established.   In addition to 42% of British workers overall wanting to start their own business, the research found that half of all respondents polled globally had the same plan, with one in 10 planning on carrying out their plan in 2022.   Viktoria Ruubel, director of Product Europe at Intuit Quickbooks UK, said: "It's refreshing to see that despite continued uncertainty from Covid-19, small businesses continue to be an increasingly important lifeline to our economy. It can often be hard to know where to begin for new entrepreneurs, yet this research found that businesses born out of this period of uncertainty have much of the knowledge they need already."

					Almost one in 10 UK motorists say they had to call 999 after hitting a pedestrian who was using their smartphone, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Almost one in 10 UK motorists say they had to call 999 after hitting a pedestrian on their smartphone: A recent survey by Fiat has revealed that nearly 10% of UK motorists admit to calling 999 after they hit a pedestrian who was on their mobile phone.   The study polled 2,000 British drivers and mobile phone users in an attempt to warn people of the dangers mobile phones can cause when the user does not remain vigilant. The survey also found that 16% of motorists had to swerve around pedestrians in the road.   When asked about how they react when a pedestrian walks into the road in front of them, 17% said they exchange angry words or swear at them. In addition, 14% stated they would use rude gestures to get their point across.   The poll also looked at differences in age groups, and which age group would be most likely to walk into the road without looking. It was uncovered that eight in 10 18 to 24 year-olds said they had looked at their smartphone while crossing the road; an increase of 47% when all age groups were observed.   Furthermore, 18 to 24-year-olds were also more likely to be involved in confrontations, found the survey, with 36% admitting using rude gestures, and a third revealing they would use angry words or swear towards either at motorists or smartphone users.   Fiat also looked at ways to prevent people getting into accidents involving pedestrians and motorists, finding that parking sensors not only make it easier for drivers to park, but also might make pedestrians more aware of the car.   When attempting to prevent an accident occurring, just under a quarter (24%) of motorists said they had to honk their horn to make pedestrians aware of them; while almost a quarter (23%) said they had to break heavily in order to avoid a collision.

					29% of teachers are 'completely comfortable' talking about LGBT+ topics in the classroom:
				</title>
				<description>
					 29% of teachers are 'completely comfortable' talking about LGBT+ topics in the classroom: A recent survey by Just Like Us has revealed that just under three in 10 (29%) school teachers feel 'completely comfortable' when discussing LGBT+ topics with their students, with just 3% reporting they felt 'completely uncomfortable' when asked the same question.   The survey polled over 6,000 primary and secondary school teachers from across the UK, asking them about their comfort levels when discussing LGTB+ topics with their students. It uncovered that just over half (52%) are 'mostly comfortable' in discussing the topics with their students.   On the other hand, 19% said they felt 'uncomfortable' with a further 14% stating they are 'not very comfortable' in response to the question.   The poll was conducted around 18 years after Section 28 was repealed ' an act brought in by Margaret Thatcher in 1988 stating that promotion of homosexuality by local authorities is prohibited.   With an aim to reduce the stigma surrounding the LGBT+ community, Ofsted require primary school lessons to include different types of families in their lessons (for example: families with same sex parents).   In addition, the Government has recently reinforced their guidance to regularly include LGBT+ topics in school and hopes that the push will help young people who are LGBT+ feel completely comfortable with their sexuality.   Dominic Arnall, chief executive of Just Like us, said: 'Today marks 18 years since Section 28 was repealed in England yet clearly things have not changed as much as we like to think and, as a result, growing up LGBT+ is still unacceptably tough. We don't blame teachers for feeling uncomfortable ' they may not have had the resources or personal life experiences ' but all you need is a willingness to support your pupils.'

					A third of Brits in Conservative constituencies across the North and Midlands believe Boris Johnson has done a 'good job' dealing with Covid-19
				</title>
				<description>
					 A third of Brits in Conservative constituencies across the North and the Midlands  believe Boris Johnson has done a 'good job' dealing with Covid-19: A recent survey by Deltapoll for The Mail on Sunday has uncovered that just over a third of voters in Conservative constituencies in the North and areas across the Midlands are of the opinion that Boris Johnson has done a good job in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.    The study polled voters in constituencies that were gained by the Conservatives in the North and Midlands and found that many people who voted for the Conservatives in the last election may change their votes before the next general election.  While the study showed a lack of support for the Prime Minister, more people feel Rishi Sunak has done a 'good job' during the pandemic (45%), than those who believe he's done a 'bad job' (40%).   Furthermore, just under a quarter (24%) of those polled said they do not believe Boris Johnson will be leader of the Conservative Party in 12 months' time, with just under three-quarters (74%) saying they don't trust the Prime Minister to tell the truth.   When asked who they thought would make a better Prime Minister, 38% of those surveyed said Kier Starmer, in comparison to just a third (33%) who said Boris Johnson. This might explain why four in 10 Brits believe Labour will win the next General Election, compared to 35% backing the Tories.   In light of rumours surrounding members of parliament breaking lockdown rules, the participants were asked whether the Prime Minister should resign if he broke the rules, with 65% saying he should resign if lockdown rules were not followed.   During the last General Election, the Conservatives won 57 seats in the North and Midlands; however nearly half (49%) believe that at the next election, Labour will win the seats back, with just a third believing the Conservatives will retain them.

					 Almost eight in 10 UK adults want companies to do more to promote sustainable packaging: A recent survey by the Chartered Institute of Marketing has revealed that 78% of Brits would like bigger companies to help promote and use sustainable packaging in their deliveries and in-store products.   The study polled 2,000 UK adults at the end of 2021, in an attempt to uncover the public's opinions about waste plastic packaging. Furthermore, more people want companies to promote sustainable packaging than in 2020; up from 66% to 78% in 2021.   When asked about which companies are the worst for waste packaging, 48% said Amazon products came with the most unnecessary packaging. Tesco was also cited, with 9% saying they should cut down on their packaging.   Both ASOS and John Lewis had just 5% of respondents saying they should reduce the amount of packaging they have around their products, with Marks and Spencer's, ASDA and Sainsbury's having just 6% saying they're the worst for packaging waste.   This could explain why over eight in 10 (82%) respondents think companies use too much plastic packaging when both delivering and selling in-store items.   Many participants think that consumers could do more to combat plastic waste, with a quarter of Brits saying they keep the packaging from purchases to wrap their own presents. This figure is up by 12% from 2020.   Gemma Butler, sustainable marketing expert and marketing director for the Chartered Institute of Marketing, said: 'Consumers are far more switched on when it comes to the challenges of excessive packaging, especially plastics, and today's findings show it's having an impact on brand association. Companies that therefore refuse to address their product packaging impacts risk damaging not only the planet, but their reputation too.'

				</title>
				<description>
					 96% of engineering employers say a skills shortage amongst workers has negatively impacted their business: A survey by the Institution of Engineering and Technology has revealed that the skills shortage in the engineering industry has impacted nearly all firms; with half stating they are having difficulty recruiting. Furthermore, 47% said they were having difficulty in making recruitment times longer as a result of a skills shortage.   The poll studied engineering workers across the UK to understand the current challenges that employers and employees are facing.    When asked about the main priorities for their firms, two-thirds of employers said they were focussed on improving the profitability of their company, with 62% citing improving productivity as a main priority.    Many firms think that the Government need to do more to help the skills shortage, with 54% saying they need to be given more funding for apprenticeships. Furthermore, just over half (51%) said they would like extra money to train and re-skill in priority areas, with a further 49% stating they would use the funding to provide better careers advice in schools and colleges.   Energy and environmental sustainability is one of the key areas for improvement within the industry, found the research, with 35% saying the area needs growth. However, only half of those surveyed believe it is achievable for their firm to be net zero by 2050, with just 51% believing they have the required skills to tackle the issue.   Workplace diversity is also something that many firms are looking at improving, with a third of employers polled stating they are taking action to improve diversity across genders, and 30% actively improving diversity across ethnicities.

					FMCG retail increased by 8% in 2020, with lockdown allowing for 78% of markets to grow, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 FMCG retail increased by 8% in 2020, with lockdown allowing for 78% of markets to grow: A recent survey by The Grocer has revealed that Covid-19 lockdowns have had a beneficial impact on the FMCG industry, with almost eight in 10 markets seeing a growth and increase in sales.   The study looked into many aspects of the food and retail market and found that, between January and June 2021, Deliveroo made almost 149 million takeaway deliveries; double the regular amount.   When looking at the most popular food items, it was uncovered that energy drinks had the highest rise in sales seeing a £205.5 million rise between 2020 and 2021. Furthermore, chocolate and fish saw big sale rises by £147.7 million and £131 million, respectively.   The coffee industry also saw an increase in sales in 2021, with roast and ground coffee sales increasing by 44%. Companies in the coffee industry, therefore, also benefitted, with Starbucks seeing a 37% increase in money going into the company.   Chilled ready meals also saw an increase in popularity as more people returned to work and Covid-19 restrictions eased, where prior to this there had been a decrease in sales. In 2021 there was a sales rise of £80.4 million, in comparison to a decrease of £74 million in the years prior.   While more people spent money at supermarkets during the pandemic, once lockdown rules eased sales in supermarkets fell by 7%, found the analysis, with the average cost of each shop dropping by 19%.   The report also explained how analysts had investigated pre-pandemic trends, finding that half the grocery shopping taking place was online before the pandemic, than since the beginning. In 2021 it was revealed that just 12% of supermarket shopping in was carried out remotely.   When consumers were asked if they plan to shop online after the pandemic, nine in 10 of those who were already doing so, said they would continue to do so, with 13% of UK shoppers choosing to use quick commerce.

				<description>
					 More people have trust in their local council than in the Government to make decisions about their local area: A recent survey has revealed that more people would place their trust in their local council to make decisions about the area they live in, than in the Government; with over half (51%) saying they trust their local council.   Just 7% said they would trust the Government to make a good decision for their local area.   The study, on behalf on the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE), polled over 1,500 adults in the UK, and was commissioned after a survey by the University of Kent and charity, Belong, observed the public's opinions on the Government over the Covid-19 pandemic.   When asked about services in their local area, 51% said they trust their local council to make decisions about services, with just 15% placing their trust in the Government.   The survey also found that trust in private companies to deliver their local services effectively (13%) was greater than trust in the Government (12%). However, almost half the participants polled (49%) said they would trust their local council.   In addition, the survey looked at participant opinions on the best way to limit climate change, with 37% believing their local council are best placed to implement measures to tackle the issue, while three in 10 believe it should be left to central Government.   Paul O'Brien, chief executive for APSE, said: 'Though the survey should bring some reassurance to the sector, it should also serve as a spur to action in convincing Government of the need to grant councils parity of esteem when delivering improvements at a community level.'

					One in 10 Northerners believe the Government's 'levelling up' plans will not make improvements locally before the next general election, reveals survey

				<description>
					 One in 10 Northerners believe the Government's 'levelling up' plans will not make improvements locally before the next general election: A recent survey by the Northern Agenda has revealed that 10% of Northerners believe the Government's 'levelling up' plans will not make their local area better before the next general election scheduled for 2024. Furthermore, 18% of respondents said they don't expect any improvements to be made within the next 10 years.   The study polled over 1,000 people in the North of England, seeking their opinions on the Government's new policy. Over two-thirds (69%) of respondents stated the plans to improve their local area would never work. In addition, just 3% said they believe there would be improvements before the end of 2022.   When asked about what they would like to see improved, a third said they'd like better living standards. Furthermore, 18% said upgrading the transport systems would be the best improvements; such as trainlines, roads and all public transport.   In addition, 14% of those surveyed said they believe the biggest improvement would be to invest in training and life skills; while one in 10 said they believe local authorities should have more power.   The survey aimed to uncover participant opinions about the North as a whole, not just within their local area. It uncovered that 96% of Northerners feel it should be a main priority for the Government to reduce the difference in inequalities between the North and the South.   The participants were also asked about how much they trust the Conservatives and the Labour party, finding that just 16% trust the Conservatives more than Labour. On the other hand, 41% stated they trust the Labour party more than the Conservatives, leaving 43% to say they trust neither.

					94% of small and medium-sized businesses report planning permission delays as a major obstacle to housebuilding, according to poll
				</title>
				<description>
					 94% of small and medium-sized businesses report planning permission delays as a major obstacle to new housebuilding: A recent survey by the Home Builder's Federation, Close Brothers Property Finance and Travis Perkins has uncovered that 94% of small and medium-sized businesses cited delays in getting planning permission as a major problem in developing new homes.   The study polled construction firms at the end of 2021 to find out more about the industry and the challenges faced by firms of all sizes. The survey also elicited that the number of firms employing apprentices has increased by almost a third (33% in the 2020 survey to 60% in 2021).   When looking into the differences between the geographic locations in the UK, it was found that northern construction firms report the most apprenticeship programmes, with 88% saying they employ apprentice workers.   Furthermore, it was uncovered that most firms in the Midlands and in the South, also employ apprentices with 59% and 52% saying so respectively.   When asked about other factors that are stopping the Government's proposed 300,000 new homes each year, 59% said worker shortages and rising wages were an issue. The construction industry as a whole, highlighted a decrease of eastern European workers as a result of Brexit, bringing increases in wages.   In addition, the rising cost of materials such as bricks, timber and cement was cited as a concern by 78% of housebuilders, up from one in five in 2020.   It is estimated that, in the UK, around 800,000 people work in the homebuilding industry; either within the planning, design or building of the property.   Frank Pennal: chief executive of Close Brother's Property Finance, said: 'The combined challenge of both labour and material shortages, rising costs and planning delays are a serious risk to the delivery of new homes across the UK. Developing homes takes months and years and while some of these issues might only be short term, they risk leaving a lasting legacy on the provision of new homes.'

					29% of homeowners reveal they used private renters for their mortgage payments, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 29% of homeowners reveal they used private renters for their mortgage payments: A survey published in November 2021 by the Office for National Statistics has revealed that nearly three in 10 homeowners with a mortgage say they made repayments via a private renter, with just under a quarter (23%) reporting they used social renters.   The study is one of the longest running Government surveys (first published in 1967) and aims to outline patterns and key points of change in the way British people use a mortgage. For example, it was found that just 3% of people with a mortgage expect to fall behind on their bills, a decrease from the 4% which stated the same thing in November 2020.   When asked if they had ever been behind on their bills, one in 10 households admitted to being behind in April 2021; a slight decrease from the 12% who said the same in November 2020. Furthermore, 17% of private renters admitted to be behind on at least one household bill.   The number of households in arrears has gone up since the start of the pandemic, according to the poll, with 2% admitting to owing money at the time of the survey, compared to less than 1% before the pandemic. In addition, one in 10 households said they found it difficult to keep up with payments over the last year.   Of those who owed money or who were in arrears, four in 10 said they have struggled more over the last year than they had previously; with a further 46% stating they had difficulty between July and November 2020, during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic.

					Half of British households expect to find their energy from more sustainable sources in the next year, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Half of British households expect to find their energy from more sustainable sources: A recent survey by Energy Helpline has revealed that 50% of British households expect to find their energy from more sustainable sources within the next 12 months. A further 47% said they would prioritise using less energy in their home in order to combat inflating gas prices.   The study observed 1,000 British participants during October 2021 and uncovered that 51% felt the government did not give enough support during the energy crisis. However, 42% said they felt it was down to energy suppliers to provide support and that these companies were not doing enough.   As an alternative to spending more on sustainable energy sources, many people are seeking to insulate their home, however, for many people this is beyond the realms of affordability.  It is estimated that the cost to insulate a home is around £10,000. Two-fifths (41%) of respondents believe that the government should pay these costs, with a further 24% saying it should be the energy suppliers who pays for the upgrades.   When asked about their ability to pay their energy bills this winter, seven in 10 participants stated that they are worried they will be unable to. A further 27% fear they may have to cut down on the amount of energy they use in order to decrease their bill, with 19% saying they are worried that their physical health might suffer from not being able to heat up their home ' up to 24% among 19-24-year-olds.   The survey also revealed that four in 10 said that the energy crisis has led to them prioritising purchasing more energy-efficient products, with just under a quarter (24%) saying they would switch to a green supplier, and almost a fifth (18%) saying they would seek to source their own energy from home.   Mark Bennet, energy expert at Energy Helpline, said: "While it's clear that the energy crisis is causing millions of households to worry about paying their bills, increasingly we are looking for more sustainable solutions when it comes to cutting our bills."

					63% of manufacturing executives say their organisation's business model has changed, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 63% of manufacturing executives say their organisation's business model has changed: A recent survey by Econsultancy, with Coveo and Stiecore, has revealed that almost two thirds (63%) of executives of manufacturing companies say they have changed their business model in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.   The study polled 467 manufacturing executives from the UK and mainland Europe and found that many had allowed their IT and tech teams to take a bigger role within the company. Furthermore, the use of websites and digital portals by manufacturing agencies has risen by 38% in the last year.   Another common change that manufacturing organisations have experienced is going from offering products to providing services, reported by 65% as a long-term plan for the company. In addition, many firms started selling directly to customers; however, only 45% said it was for the longer-term.   When asked about whether the IT change will be a more permanent feature of the organisation, 65% it would be a long-term change, leaving 35% admitting it is just in the short-term. Furthermore, 39% of participants said that implementing new technology platforms would allow their customers to have a better digital experience.    Manufacturing executives will have to decide which technology will have the biggest impact on the company, with 35% saying they would like a system that would allow the customer to personalise their searches.   Furthermore, 34% said they would like to use the internet to offer new services or products to customers, with a quarter also saying they would like more advanced analytics so they can evaluate any interaction.   The survey also uncovered that half the executives polled were not confident they can make and promote the product in the best way. Two-fifths (41%) said it is because the data is too complex and is from too many data sources, with 37% blaming unreliable data sets.

				<description>
					 Over half of manufacturing firms have used 3D printing for more than five years: A recent survey by PostProcess have uncovered that 51% of manufacturing firms say they have used 3D printing for at least the last five years, up from 45% in 2020.   The study has been running since 2019, and polled the users of post-processing systems in an attempt to outline the future for the post-printing and 3D printing industry. The survey found that the number of firms that said they would use 3D printing for prototyping over the next five years had decreased from 57% in 2019, to 44% in 2021.   When asked about what would make them invest more into 3D printing, over three-quarters (76%) said 'improving end part quality', with a further 38% saying 'reducing the company's dependency on labour'.    In addition, many manufacturing firms stated the importance of health and safety, with 36% saying they would invest more into the 3D printing industry if it made work safer for their employees. However, 8% said they currently have no plans to invest into the 3D printing industry.   The survey also looked at the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the 3D printing industry, with just under a third (32%) saying they want to use 3D printing more as a result; with the majority of them being based in Europe.   The research highlights that the number of manufacturing firms using more than one production method has dropped to just half, down from seven in 10 in 2020.    Furthermore, when asked about what they use the production technologies for, 52% said they used 3D printing for prototyping in 2021; a decrease from 65% in 2019.

					 86% of people would trust museum curators to tell them the truth: A recent survey has revealed that 86% of Brits would trust museum curators to tell them the truth, in comparison to just 63% saying they trust the police.   The study by by Ipsos MORI polled over 2,000 British adults between October and November 2021, with the aim of finding out which profession is viewed as being the most trustworthy. The survey uncovered that 94% of Brits would trust nurses to tell them the truth, making them the most trustworthy.   On the other hand, only 16% said they would trust advertising executives, with just slightly more who would put their trust in government ministers (19%).    Just under a quarter (24%) of men said they would trust politicians, with 15% of women saying the same.   When asked about their opinions of lawyers, 63% of women said they would trust them to tell the truth, slightly more than men (50%). In addition, women were also more trusting in trade union officials than men (48% vs 40%).   The study also looked into the varying opinions of people with and without university degrees, and found that half of those surveyed without a qualification would trust bankers to give good advice compared to 35% of those with a degree.   More participants with degrees (72%), however, said they would trust civil servants to tell the truth compared to those without a qualification (40%), with 57% rusting the profession overall.

				<description>
					 55% of British women report concerns about personal finance, work stress and mental health because of the pandemic: A recent survey by YouGov has revealed that more women (55%) reported concerns about their mental health, personal finance and work stress than men (36%).    The study polled participants from 27 different countries for the Cambridge Globalism Project in order to find out how the pandemic has impacted different people from various cultures.    When looking at how the pandemic had affected different age groups, the analysis showed half of 18-24-year-olds, in the UK, said it had affected their mental health; compared to a quarter of those aged 55 and over. In comparision, almost six in 10 young people in Italy reported that their mental health had been negatively affected, compared to 39% of older generations.   It was also found that Britain had one of the highest levels of optimism for the future (42%) with only Australia (45%), the United States (43%) and Canada (44%) highlighted as more optimistic nations.   The survey uncovered that people from Northern Europe were less likely to say the pandemic had affected their personal finances. Furthermore, 22% of British citizens admitted their finances had been affected by the pandemic, with just Sweden reporting a lower percentage (15%). Many southern hemisphere nations, such as Brazil (54%), Kenya (75%) and South Africa (59%), recorded higher figures.   When asked about whether they had moved to a new part of the country during the pandemic, just 4% of Brits said they had; the lowest percentage out of all the nations surveyed, alongside Denmark. Brazil and Saudi Arabia (22%) were found to be the countries with most population movement, just ahead of South Africa (21%).

					Double the amount of female English football fans have experienced unwanted physical attention at a match since 2014 reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Double the amount of female English football fans have experience unwanted physical attention at a match since 2014: A recent survey by the Football Supporters' Association (FSA) has revealed that one in five women have experienced unwanted physical attention at men's football matches, double the amount reported during the corresponding 2014 survey.   The study polled 2,000 football supporters, with the aim of exposing and preventing sexism at football matches in the UK. The survey also uncovered that three-quarters of those at women's football matches have never experienced sexist chants or unwanted physical attention.   When asked about the type of sexism they had experienced at football matches, 44% said they had been told they 'know a lot for a girl', with a further 34% stating they had 'heard sexist comments'. In addition, a quarter said they had heard sexist chants and that women 'only go to the games because they fancy the players'.   The participants were also asked how it makes them feel when they experience sexism at a game, with almost half saying they feel angry. Furthermore, 38% say they feel embarrassed for the person who said it; 24% found it upsetting and one in 20 said it makes them not want to go again.   However, 15% said the sexism they hear at football matches doesn't bother them, with a further 12% saying they just laugh it off; half of the figure from 2014 who said the same.   The study also looked at ways of possibly preventing sexism at football matches, with almost six in 10 saying they believe clubs should condemn those who exhibit sexist behaviour. In addition, 39% said they would like to see sexist individuals ejected from the stadium.   Ally Simcock, Port Vale and FSA board member, said: 'I've been going to men's football for a long time now and have heard my share of sexist comments, but a lot has changed recently. Things like the #MeToo movement have helped change people's perceptions about what they're willing to put up with, and what is or isn't acceptable.'

					Eight in 10 journalists experience threats, abuse or violence whilst working in the UK, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Eight in 10 journalists experience threats, abuse or violence whilst working in the UK: A recent survey by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, along with the Home Office, has revealed that 80% of journalists working in the UK have been exposed to threats, violence or abuse while at work. This is responsible for making over a third of female journalists not feel safe whilst working.   The study polled 360 male and female journalists in the UK between June and July 2021, as part of the government's plan to protect journalists. A fifth (20%) of respondents said they do not report: abuse, intimidation, threats, violence, bullying, sexism, racism or homophobia because they believe it comes as part of their job.   When asked about how they receive abuse, just under a third said they had experienced it online, with 34% saying most of the abuse or threats had happened in person. Furthermore, just over a third said they had received abuse both online and offline.   In addition, of the 360 journalists observed, almost three-quarters stated they had experienced threats or abuse via social media.   The study also uncovered differences between genders and ethnicities, with men being more likely to experience violence or abuse. On the other hand, women were more likely to experience bullying, with half of female respondents saying they had experienced sexism because of their work.   Non-white journalists are more likely to report being affected by the abuse they receive, found the study, with one in five stating it had had an extreme affected on them; compared to one in 10 white respondents. Furthermore, double the number of journalists from an ethnic minority background reported that the incidents had extremely affected them individually.   Owen Meredith, News Media Association chief executive, said: "No-one should have to go to work fearing that they will be abused, assaulted or worse. Journalists are no different."

					45-54-year-olds are more likely to never trust Black Friday deals, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 45-54-year-olds are more likely to never trust Black Friday deals: A has revealed that 44% of 45-54-year-olds never trust deals on Black Friday, making the age group the most sceptical in the UK.   The survey by YouGov also found that 18-24-year-olds are most likely to believe Black Friday deals are good value, with just 15% saying they doubt they are getting as good a deal as they are being offered.   The study polled over 2,000 people in the UK in an attempt to uncover the validity of Black Friday deals.  Nearly two-fifths (37%) of those surveyed stated they would never trust Black Friday deals.   For the research, a deal was deemed to be false if it is increased by 10% or more, then decreased by 5% or more during the sale. The study found that just under 13% of products increased in price by an average of 20% in preparation for Black Friday.   The poll also aimed to find out which categories often have the best Black Friday deals, with over 20% of soundbar and home cinema systems being included in the deals. The next most popular categories to be included in Black Friday deals were speakers and toys with 19% each.   Nike was found to have one of the best Black Friday discounts in 2020, with its 'tech fleece full zip hoodie' and 'tech fleece shorts', both having 58% off; the highest discount on a product in that year. Furthermore, BT, JBL and Amazon all had products named in the top 10 for discounts in 2020.   Christine Gouldthorp, consumer expert at PriceRunner, said: 'I am really disappointed to see so many retailers still resorting to this horrible sales tactic. Retailers are already increasing their prices ahead of Black Friday and I expect them to keep doing so for a few more weeks.'

					Two-thirds of Brits, who took early retirement, report increased happiness since making the decision to leave employment, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Two-thirds of Brits, who took an early retirement, report increased happiness since their decision to leave employment: A survey by Aviva has revealed that just over 66% of early retirees say they feel  happier since leaving their job. Furthermore, one in five said they feel the age of 55 is the right age to retire as they can gain access to their pension savings.   Furthermore, half of those surveyed stated an improvement to their physical wellbeing as a result of retiring, with 57% saying the same about their mental wellbeing.   The study polled 2,000 British adults to find patterns in when and why people choose to retire. The survey also found that just over a quarter (26%) made the decision to retire when they felt financially stable enough to do so.   Furthermore, 22% of respondents said they felt retirement helped them become more financially stable, with a further 33% stating that having a defined benefit pension enabled them to retire when they did.   On the other hand, 47% saw a decrease to their finances as a result of taking an early retirement, with half of women stating they took a financial hit when they retired. In contrast, just 44% of men reported a decrease in wealth after retirement.   Currently, the UK state pension age is 66, however many people said they are comfortable to retire before then. It is also estimated that the state pension age will go up to 67 before the year 2030, and could be as high as 69 by the middle of the century.   Alistair McQueen, head of savings and retirement at Aviva, said: 'It's important to learn from the lesson that, while happiness soars in retirement, many people find their finances take the strain when they retire early. If you aspire to retire early, it's vital you plan your finances to be sustainable for the long-term.'

					66% of British public recognise that trains are a greener form of transport than cars, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 66% of British public recognise that trains are a greener form of transport than cars: A recent survey by Network Rail has revealed that two-thirds of British adults understand that trains are a better form of transport, than cars, for the environment. However, it was also uncovered that 73% use cars as their main mode of transport.   The study polled over 2,000 British adults ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow earlier this year, and found that cars are more commonly used by UK citizens than trains; despite trains being more environmentally friendly.   It has been proven that the carbon emissions emitted from a train are less harmful to the environment than the emissions from a car. Furthermore, the cost to maintain and run a car is increasing with fuel costs rising considerably.   The number of people who said they had used public transport, and specifically the railways has fallen significantly since the start of 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. According to the research, total passenger numbers were at around 65% of what they were pre-pandemic. However, passenger numbers had increased by 19% in the months prior to the conference, according to the research, with incentives such as flexible season tickets attracting people back to rail travel.   When asked about if their habits could change, two thirds of participants said they would consider using trains instead of their cars for days out with friends or family. Furthermore, 55% would consider using the train in order to travel to music and sport events.   Tim Shoveller, managing director for Network Rail's North West and Central region, said: 'Rail is the greenest form of public transport there is. We want to encourage as many people as possible to make the shift from car to train more regularly, particularly for long-distance travel ' not just for the planet, but for reliability, comfort and safety.'

				<description>
					 43% of Britons would be highly interested in embedded property insurance: A survey has found that 43% of banking customers would by highly interested in bank-embedded offers in the property sector, with a further 28% stating their support for the embedded offers in travel insurance.   The survey was commissioned by Momentive.ai to understand the opinions of bank and online banking customers on proposed embedded insurance offers. More than 500 bank customers in the UK were polled, uncovering an increasing amount of support for bank-embedded insurance offers in the automobile sector (26%), with 43% also stating they would be interested in embedded offers for high-value personal and household items.   When asked about whether they would be interested in bank-embedded offers based off their transaction data, 71% stated they would support the idea. Furthermore, 64% of traditional bank customers would also be interested in embedded offers in relation to their transactions. When questioned about the reason for their decision, 49% stated convenience as the main motive.   Three quarters of customers who use mobile wallets would be highly interested in receiving insurance offers from their banks. In addition, 89% of both 'buy now pay later' loan users and small business owners would also like to receive insurance offers; with 79% of people who chose to use investing apps or accounts feeling the same.   The study also found that eight in 10 of those who chose a traditional insurer or broker in the last year would prefer it if they were offered bank-embedded offers next time.   A similar study was conducted in America of over 3,500 participants, which found a correlation between certain life events (such as the birth of a child and the purchase of property or car) and the opinions participants had about bank-embedded insurance offers; the amount of people in support of receiving these offers would increase when drastic changes occur in their lives.

				</title>
				<description>
					 41% of UK citizens satisfied with the Government's handling of the coronavirus pandemic: A recent survey by YouGov has revealed that over four in 10 Brits believe the Government has handled the pandemic well, an increase from 39% during the corresponding 2020 survey.   The study polled over 26,000 people in 26 different countries and uncovered that Australia's public satisfaction with its government's handling of the pandemic decreased by 27% between 2020 and 2021. Furthermore, Greece showed the biggest decrease in public satisfaction; going from 72% in 2020 to just 42% in 2021.   When asked about vaccine passports, 64% of Brits said they would welcome passports at large public events, such as football matches or concerts. Furthermore, over four in 10 (41%) British citizens said they would support the use of vaccine passports in restaurants. Eight in 10 countries are in majority favour of vaccine passes.   In both Germany and the UK, there was a 41% majority in favour of vaccine passes on public transport, with Denmark, Hungary and Poland the only countries without a majority.   The research found that people believed their government was prioritising limiting the spread of coronavirus, with a third of Polish and Indonesian citizens wanting more freedom to allow ordinary life to happen. Furthermore, a quarter of Britons said the Government's response was too restrictive on personal freedoms, an increase from 13% in 2020.   In comparison, the number of Spanish nationals thinking their freedom has been sacrificed unjustly was the same in 2020 at 34%, with Brazil seeing a decrease from 39% to 36% in 2021.   In 2020, around 21% of Germans said their ordinary life was taken away in order to slow down coronavirus infections, which increased to 34% in 2021. Every nation observed in the survey showed an increase in the number of people who believe the priority was on stopping infections.

				<description>
					 Four in 10 UK adults say they are not saving enough money for a comfortable retirement: A recent survey by Wealth at Work has uncovered that 41% of UK adults are aware that the money being put into their pension, is not enough for them to be able to enjoy a comfortable retirement.   The study polled over 1,000 British working adults and found that 63% believe their financial knowledge is either 'excellent' or 'above average'. Furthermore, a quarter said their financial ability was 'excellent', with a further 38% claiming it to be 'above average'.   A third of participants said their financial ability was 'average' with just one in 20 admitting their knowledge is 'below average'.   When asked about the money being put into their pension, 16% said they didn't know if they are permitted to put extra money into their workplace pension. Furthermore, 12% are unsure how much they are putting into their pension, with 14% saying they do not know how much their employer contributes.   The survey also looked into whether people know how they are going to spend their retirement money and uncovered that 11% will have to withdraw from their pension as soon as they retire.   Furthermore, 7% said they will take out the same amount of money each month when they retire, with just one in 20 saying they will take out all their pension in one go.    Many of the participants were aware that they might not receive their pension, with one in 10 saying if their employer goes bust, they will lose their money. In addition, 7% said they will lose all of their money if they die before they reach retirement.   Jonathan Watts-Lay, director for Wealth at Work, said: 'Many companies are now seeing the benefit of sourcing specialist financial wellbeing provides to help employees improve their financial future, covering everything from debt and money management through to optimising employer sponsored benefits and retirement.'

					Six in 10 office workers say they are left to make their workplace eco-friendlier, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Six in 10 office workers say they are left to make their workplace 'eco-friendlier': A recent survey by Essity, a health and hygiene company, has revealed that 60% of employees feel their employers leave them to implement measures to make their workplace more 'eco-friendy'. Furthermore, a third of respondents believe that Covid-19 lockdowns provided an ideal opportunity to apply more measures, but were missed by employers.   The study polled 2,000 British office workers in an attempt to highlight eco problems in offices across the UK. The study found that 45% of those surveyed said their workplace was 'shamefully' eco-unfriendly.   When asked about what they would like to happen to improve their office, 36% said they would welcome desk plants to improve the air quality, while 35% said they would rather use more recycled products.   As well as focusing on office working, the study polled the participants about how eco-friendly they were whilst working from home. The survey uncovered that 42% said they had become more eco conscious, with 46% maintaining their efforts when returning to the office.   Furthermore, the change made almost four in 10 participants notice how eco-unfriendly their workplace is; with 38% unsure whether their boss actually knows what measures to implement.   In addition, four in 10 said their boss appears to 'not care at all' about how eco-friendly their office is. On the other hand, 48% said their employer probably does not implement more measures due to cost.   Of the 2,000 people surveyed, six in 10 believe their colleagues would react positively to more eco-friendly practices, with one in five saying they would consider leaving their job due to a lack of green measuers in place.   A spokesman from Essity said: 'Working from home has led to people giving more thought to their own actions towards the future of the planet, and it seems many had assumed their employers would give the same attention to the workplace."

					Over two in five accountants state they 'never' or 'rarely' have optimism for the future, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over two in five accountants state they 'never' or 'rarely' have optimism for the future: A recent survey by ACA students from the accountant wellbeing charity CABA has found that 21% of UK accountants are 'never' or 'rarely' optimistic about the future of their career. However, a quarter of those polled said they didn't feel able to speak about their stresses or worries.   The poll questioned over 1,000 UK accountants in June and July 2021 in preparation for National Stress Awareness Day at the start of November. The survey aimed to uncover how accountants really feel and attempted to give advice for the most common challenges that were revealed.   When asked about how their mental health may have affected their work, just over four in 10 said they felt as if they were unable to work effectively because of low energy. Furthermore, three in 10 stated they felt isolated when trying to deal with their challenges.   In addition, over 56% said they felt challenged emotionally in the year leading up to the study taking place.    The study also aimed to uncover why the accountants might have been feeling the way they did, with a third saying their career, work or studies are the reason for feeling more stressed. Furthermore, 18% stated the impact of the pandemic on their work and life as a key factor, with 14% saying they constantly felt under pressure.   Paul Day, support officer for CABA, said: 'Some individuals may be put off from seeking help due to the perception of stigma, time barriers or simply not knowing where to look or how to find help. Whatever it is you're struggling with, though, it's vital you get some kind of support.'

					Just Co-op and Morrisons have stopped supplying plastic bags at tills, finds survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Just Co-op and Morrisons have stopped supplying plastic bags at tills: A survey asking supermarkets about the measures they have adopted, or plan to adopt to help climate change, have found that while single-use plastic bags are largely no longer in use, only the Co-op and Morrison's have stopped supplying plastic bags at tills, or plan to do so imminently.   The 'Time to Shelve' research surveyed nine of the leading supermarkets in the asking the questions that Metro readers wanted to know in relation to fighting climate change. The study also found that 87% of UK consumers regularly shop at these nine supermarkets: Sainsbury's, Tesco, ASDA, Co-op, Morrisons, ALDI, LIDL, Waitrose and Marks and Spencer's.   When asked about their opinions on having glass milk bottles instead of plastic ones, only Sainsbury's and Morrisons said they are currently changing away from plastic packaging. However, all other supermarkets gave an acceptable reason as to why glass bottles would not work in their stores.   Plastic waste is one of the most important issues facing the planet today, so many of the questions in the questionnaire were based around reducing plastic waste. Many people wanted to know if the major supermarkets would consider shrink wrapping their multipack items, with none of the nine stores saying they are currently doing so. On the other hand, only ASDA and ALDI said they have no plans to shrink wrap their multipacks.   Many questions were also based around reducing the amount of energy used in a store; with all of the supermarkets having turned down, or committed to turning down the aircon in their store. Furthermore, none of the supermarket chains said they were against the idea of reducing the number of open refrigerators in favour of closed ones.   10 things Metro readers asked supermarkets to do:    Replace plastic bags at till with paper ones   Remove all plastic packaging on fresh fruit and veg   Swap plastic milk bottles for glass   Stop selling multipacks in plastic shrink-wrap   Only use energy efficient light bulbs   Reduce usage outside of shop hours   Swap open refrigeration units for closed ones   Turn down the aircon   More options to buy food individually rather than multipacks   Reduce food waste

					Approximately 45 million UK adults report receiving a suspicious message to their landline or mobile, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Approximately 45 million UK adults report receiving a suspicious message to their landline or mobile: A recent survey by Ofcom has revealed that 82% of British adults have received a suspicious message via their mobile phone or landline, equating to approximately 45 million in the UK.    The study polled 2,000 UK adults in September of 2021 and aimed to uncover the experiences of a range of people who have received suspicious messages. The survey found that 2% admitted to following the instructions on a message or call within the last few months, equalling almost one million people in the UK.   The poll also looked into the difference in ages and whether certain age groups receive more suspicious messages or calls. Three in five (61%) people aged 75 and over reported receiving a potential scam call to their landline, with 51% of those stating it happened at least once a week.   In addition, 71% of those surveyed said they'd received a suspicious text, rising to three-quarters (75%) among 16'34-year-olds. Of the 71% who said they'd received a suspicious text   When asked about their familiarity with how to report a suspicious message, 79% of mobile phone users stated they were unaware of the 7726 number used to report such messages. However, 81% agreed that reporting messages is helpful in preventing further scam messages.   Of those who reported receiving a suspicious message to their mobile, 53% stated they had deleted the message, with a further 52% saying they blocked the number after the text. Furthermore, 49% of those who received a suspicious call blocked the number, with 44% of participants who received a suspicious recorded message ended up doing the same thing.

					Women are 60% more likely to falsely acquire prescription drugs from their GP than men, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Women are 60% more likely to falsely acquire prescription drugs from their GP than men: A recent survey by Delamere, a private rehab clinic, has found that women are almost two thirds as likely to wrongly obtain prescription drugs off their doctor than men, with men being twice as likely as women to go on the dark web to obtain drugs.   The study asked over 2,000 Brits about their substance use and estimated that 3.2 million people had used drugs in the UK over the last year. Furthermore, it is predicted that just over 2% of the population are regular drug users.   When asked about how they felt drugs affected them, nearly a third (32%) of men stated they are worried about how substance abuse is affecting their body. On the other hand, just less than a quarter (24%) of women expressed the same concern; leading to men being 52% more likely to seek help than women.   The survey also looked into drug use during the pandemic, with men being 38% more likely to use drugs during lockdown than women. In addition, 59% of men admitted to using illegal drugs in the last year, while just over half (52%) of women stated the same.    Although significantly more men take drugs than women, according to the poll, it was found that a similar number of men and women drink alcohol; with 50% of men and 49% of women saying they had consumed alcohol over the past 12 months. It was also found that cannabis is nearly as common as paracetamol in the UK.   Mike Delaney, nurse, physiotherapist and clinical director for Delamere, said: 'When people are forced to be together day in, day out without respite, chemicals such as cocaine can improve mood, make conversation and connection easier and simply make life seem a little less bleak.'

					Electronics manufacturers are struggling to hire enough workers, with 80% expecting the situation to continue, finds survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Electronics manufacturers are struggling to hire enough workers, with 80% expecting the situation to continue: A survey of electronics manufacturers has revealed insight into the current state of the sector, with 80% of respondents saying the challenge of finding qualified workers is not likely to ease.    In response to this, nearly half those polled said they have taken to upskilling their workforce (46%) as well as increasing wages (44%) in a bid to attract and keep workers.    The survey by IPC, which polled hundreds of electronics manufacturers around the globe, also found that a global shortage of products and components is causing problems with production delays, increased materials costs and optimism within the industry.    Nearly nine out of 10 respondents (88%) reported experiencing increased lead times, with nearly a third (31%) seeing delays to products of eight weeks or more.  Asked when they expect the shortages to end, over half (58%) believe it will be the second half of 2022 at the earliest,  according to the research.   Six in 10 companies polled also reported that backlogs are increasing as global inventories are declining, with a quarter believing they will continue to deplete. Just under half expect inventories to stay flat.   The research also found that 90% of those polled said that they have paid higher prices to their supppliers due to shortages.   Shawn DuBravac, IPC chief economist and lead researcher on the study, said: 'Supply shortages and other dislocations are impacting the global electronics supply chain and every downstream industry these manufacturers serve. Strong demand is helping industry sales, but shortages are delaying shipments and increasing backlogs. Manufacturers are facing higher prices as they compete for limited supply. This is a global phenomenon that is going to take well into next year to resolve."

					Nearly two-thirds of Brits believe that lenders don't consider whether an applicant has had help from the furlough scheme, according to survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Nearly two-thirds of Brits believe that lenders don't consider whether an applicant has had help from the furlough scheme: A recent survey has found that 64% of Britons believe that lenders will not consider the help that people have been given from the furlough scheme during the pandemic when it comes to their suitability for a mortgage.   Furthermore, 42% of those surveyed believe that being self-employed is not typically something that is considered by lenders when applying for a mortgage.   The study of 2,000 British adults was commissioned by NerdWallet in response to reports that some large high street banks have refused mortgage applications to people if they were self-employed or had received help from the government during the Covid-19 crisis.   In addition, two thirds of 18-34-year-olds were of the opinion that mortgage lenders would not consider whether their applicant had benefited from the furlough scheme, with men being 9% more likely to think this than women.   When asked about whether they felt they could secure a decent mortgage, over three-quarters said they felt they lacked the knowledge to make an informed decision. Furthermore, eight in 10 stated they would lack confidence in identifying poor advice given to help them, with 31% saying they would not trust what they read online regarding mortgage advice.   The survey also found that only 22% of 18-54-year-olds, including just 15% of 18-25-year-olds, knew about a government-backed mortgage guarantee scheme, which could apply to them. A further 78% of working age adults stated that they did not know of any help that could aid them when buying a property.   Richard Eagling, senior mortgage expert at NerdWallet, said: "Many people have underestimated the impact of being furloughed or accessing self-employed Covid grants on their ability to get a mortgage. A lender will always determine the risk level that a mortgage applicant presents and whether they can afford the repayments, and it seems that many lenders are excluding furloughed income when assessing affordability.'

					56% of global chief executives admit their supply chain has been under increased stress since the start of the pandemic, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 56% of global chief executives admit their supply chain has been under increased stress since the start of the pandemic: A survey has found that over half of chief executives globally (and 59% of bosses in the UK) have said their supply chain is struggling due to the coronavirus pandemic; making it one of the biggest risks to growth worldwide.   The survey by KPMG of around 1,300 chief executives globally, including 150 British bosses found that supply chain pressure is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses; alongside cyber security and climate issues. Furthermore, 35% of UK bosses have stated their plans to invest over 10% of their revenue towards environmental sustainability measures.   Many people are of the opinion that the issues surrounding supply chains were caused because of a lack of lorry drivers, Brexit and the pandemic.    In order to combat the impact of supply chain crisis, just under one in five (19%) of bosses globally have stated their plans to onshore more of their supply chains. Furthermore, 16% of UK bosses said they are aiming to increase British supply over the next three years.   The study also revealed 37% of companies are putting in place a hybrid working model, meaning staff will work remotely two or three days a week; with just over half (51%) investing in a shared office space ' up from 14% in February 2021.   Nearly a third (30%) of chief executives globally said they will diversify their sources of input by adding new locations, in order to make their supply chains stronger. Furthermore, 87% stated they felt they were ready to make an investment over the next three years.   Jon Holt, chief executive of KPMG in the UK, said: "It's encouraging to see CEOs thinking about growth and investment for the future with renewed confidence and optimism. CEOs have had to pivot their business strategies to face into many uncertainties brought by the pandemic, and now they are looking to move their plans from resilience to expansion.'

				<description>

Just under half (49%) of the British population either disagree or strongly disagree that the Prime Minister 'cares about people like me', with just one in four agreeing with the statement. Furthermore, just 35% are of the opinion that Boris Johnson is a strong leader, with 18% unable to agree or disagree.   When asked whether they thought Boris Johnson was consistent in his decision making, less than one in four respondents thought he was, with 56% of the view that the Prime Minister's decision making was irregular.   The survey also showed the disparity between male and female views on Boris Johnson's traits; with men showing more trust in the Prime Minister in terms of keeping his promises and consistency in decision making. One in four men believe Boris Johnson keeps his promises, compared to 22% of women.   Similarly, the study also shows difference in opinions between ages ' 34% of those aged between 25 and 34 believe Boris Johnson cares about people like them, while just 19% of 45-55-year-olds share the same view.   Furthermore, 58% of 55-64-year-olds either disagree or strongly disagree that Boris Johnson is organised while just 19% of both the 45-54 and 65+ age groups would agree with the statement.

					Business confidence has increased to 36%; highest figure since 2017, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Business confidence has increased to 36%; highest figure since 2017: A recent survey by Lloyds Bank of 1,200 businesses at the start of August has found that business confidence, in the UK, has risen by 6% to 36% - the highest recorded figure since April 2017. Likewise, economic optimism rose by 6%, as well, to 38%.   When asked about wages, a third of businesses stated they expect a pay rise of at least 2%, with nearly half of companies expecting to charge higher prices in the coming months. Furthermore, 17% of employees are anticipating a wage increase of at least 3%. The increase, of 12% from when the question was last asked, is the highest since it was first asked in 2018.   The study also found a disparity in business confidence between different locations of the UK, with the North East showing the most confidence in their business (46%) - an increase of 6% since the previous survey. Just behind the North East, London was also found to have a lot of business confidence, with 41% of businesses in the capital stating their trust in their company ' a rise of 4%.   On the other hand, three regions in the UK had a decrease in confidence since the last survey: the West Midlands dopped to 27%, Yorkshire and the Humber decreased to 26% with just 28% of the East Midlands stating their confidence.   Gareth Oakley, managing director for Business Banking at Lloyds Bank, said: 'With further boosts to confidence in the services, manufacturing and construction sectors we can be hopeful that demand across all sectors will drive consumption throughout the rest of the year.'

					54% of parents give children their first mobile phone whilst they're still at primary school, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 54% of parents give children their first mobile phone whilst still at primary school: A recent survey by Tesco Mobile has revealed that over half of parents will give their children their first phone before they start high school. Furthermore, six in 10 adults are of the opinion that a mobile phone is an essential item for school, both to aid learning and for the child's safety.   More than a third of parents polled (37%) stated that owning a mobile phone is a good exercise of responsibility for their child, as it gives them more choice and something to look after. Another reason that is given as a positive for kids having phones in school, is they can help promote a healthy social life as they interact with their friends when they're not with them.   When asked about why they felt it was important to give their child a mobile phone before the age of 11, 69% said they felt their child was safer when they had a phone on them. In addition, a further 47% stated the child's ability to keep in touch with friends and family as a major point in having a phone in primary school.   The most important feature of a mobile phone for kids, according to half of parents, is the minutes and texts; meaning 37% decided on affordable plans for their children. However, 34% of participants stated they had opted for mobile data on their kids' contract.   The study also aimed to uncover the biggest challenges that parents face when the new school term starts, with over half (53%) of parents stating the cost of school clothes and equipment the most stressful. Furthermore, 47% of parents admit to struggling to remember all the items they have to buy for the new school term, with a further 28% saying they struggle to make enough time to get organised.

					Over nine in 10 female doctors experienced some kind of sexism in the workplace, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over nine in 10 female doctors have experienced some kind of sexism in the workplace: A recent survey by the British Medical Association (BMA) has revealed that nine out of 10 female doctors say they have experienced sexism in some form in the workplace.   The survey of nearly 2,500 respondents (82% of which were women and 16% male), also found that GP partners, salaried GPs and consultants the most likely to be treated differently because of their gender; with just 18% of salaried GPs having not experienced sexism while at work.   Furthermore, it was found that doctors with more caring responsibilities and those working part time are more at risk of experiencing sexism while at work; with many saying they don't feel there is enough cultural or structural support for doctors who have children.   When asked more in-depth questions about the sexism that they had endured while working, 31% of female doctors stated they had experience unwanted physical contact; with just 23% of male doctors having been in the same situation. Furthermore, females working in the medical profession have expressed they don't feel they get as much support or encouragement as men working the same job.   The study also revealed the impact that sexism is having on doctors and the profession as a whole, with two thirds of females saying it has negatively impacted their life and work; In contrast 45% of men expressed how they believe sexism has affected them positively.    One of the biggest differences between men and women, in terms of sexism in the medical profession, is the number that say their clinical ability has been called into question because of their gender. Seven in 10 females say their ability to perform their job has been scrutinised due to their gender, compared to just 4% of men who feel the same, according to the research.

					83% of businesses did not know about an upcoming plastics tax expected to be introduced in 2022, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 83% of businesses did not know about an upcoming plastics tax expected to be introduced in 2022: A recent survey by Veolia aimed to uncover businesses' opinion on the future plastics tax, instead found that over eight in 10 of those surveyed, didn't know there was one.  The tax is being brought in to reduce plastic waste and will charge companies £200 per tonne if the plastic doesn't include at least 30% recycled plastic.   To help the environment, many people have been involved in climate groups which has resulted in an increase in concern about the amount of waste and pollution that is being produced. The study found that public conscience (48%) was a major driving factor in implementing this tax, alongside the Government mandate (30%).   The Government's mandate is to increase the amount of plastic being recycled in order to decrease carbon emissions. Furthermore, it was found that if all plastic was recycled, global emissions would decrease by 61%. This, alone, means that between 30 and 150 million tonnes of carbon would be saved from entering the Earth's atmosphere each year ' according to the Imperial College London.   When informed about the future plastic tax, 84% of businesses polled agreed to support the tax on plastic packaging. They felt that, not only will it decrease the amount of carbon in the atmosphere, it will help create jobs for people and would encourage more domestic infrastructure.   Tim Duret, director of sustainable technology for Veolia UK and Ireland, said: "The Plastics Packaging Tax is removing the economic burden of acting more sustainably and levelling the playing field for businesses. In order to continue this momentum, we need to escalate the tax and roll it out across all types of plastics like construction, cars, furniture and electric goods."

					Four in 10 Brits are concerned about the amount of plastic packaging in their food and drink items, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Four in 10 Brits are concerned about the amount of plastic packaging in their food and drink items: A survey has revealed that four in 10 UK shoppers have concerns regarding the level of plastic surrounding their food and drink items.    Furthermore, 51% of 55-64-year-olds have expressed their concern about the impact that plastic is having on the environment and themselves; making the age group the most outspoken about plastic pollution.   The study, by Harris Interactive, polled 1,000 UK shoppers and highlighted the biggest issues in reducing the number of single-use plastics. A quarter stated they don't believe the alternatives are as good, with a further 46% saying they don't believe there are enough alternatives to rival plastic packaging. The lack of alternative packaging was the third biggest issue; behind ocean (65%) and land (54%) pollution.   Just under three-quarters of the participants polled said brands and manufacturers have the most responsibility to help the plastic problem; with 54% saying that consumers have more responsibility than the government (52%).   When asked about which supermarkets have made the most progress in the past five years, nearly three in 10 said 'none of them', while 15% said Tesco. In comparison, just 3% believe Iceland has reduced its single-use plastics well, with only 4% believing Lidl has made significant progress.   The survey highlighted that nearly a quarter of participants are willing to attempt cutting out single use plastics completely, with 23% saying they have tried a plastic-free challenge. 18-34-year-olds were most likely to take on the challenge, with two-thirds, of those who took the challenge, saying they managed to complete it. Challenges ranged from a plastic-free month, to a single shop with the aim of  reducing the number of single-use plastic items bought.   Nearly three in 10 (29%) shoppers stated they felt 'quite concerned' about the number of single-use plastics used to package their food and drink, with a further 22% saying they felt a 'little concerned'. On the other hand, 7% answered 'it doesn't matter', with 3% unable to decide.

					Over a third of English councils support plans that could increase carbon emissions, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over a third of English councils support plans that could increase carbon emissions: A recent survey by the BBC has revealed that around a third of English councils (33%) have supported plans that could potentially increase carbon emissions; including upgrading airports, building new roads and constructing underground tunnels.   Despite many councils advocating plans that could increase the amount of carbon in the atmosphere, nearly nine in 10 have declared a 'climate emergency'. Many of the most rural counties, however, believe there is there is no such a climate emergency; which may help to explain a more relaxed approach by certain councils.   Many people believe the government's plans to cut all greenhouse gases to almost zero, does not align with local council's plans to develop. When asked why the progression to net-zero emissions has been slow, two thirds of English councils stated the pandemic was a main reason. Furthermore, the Isle of Wight council has expressed their concern that the pandemic might delay their aim of being net-zero in 2030 by 10 years.   Another reason given for the slow progress towards net-zero emissions is the under-funding from the government. The National Audit Office has recently found that the government set aside £1.2billion to be put towards tackling the climate change issue; however, the competitive nature of these grants makes long term planning more difficult.   Helen Hayden, councillor for infrastructure and climate for Leeds city council, said: 'It would seem like an inconsistency. So, we do have to keep it in context and not let it distract us from doing all those things that will actually tackle the bigger issues that are in our city.'

					Job vacancies estimated at nearly one million for the first time since records began in 2001, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Job vacancies estimated at nearly one million for the first time since records began in 2001: A recent survey by the Office for National Statistics has revealed the number of job vacancies has been estimated to be at just under one million in June 2021. The estimated number of vacancies (953,000) is the highest estimated since records began in 2001.   It was also found that the Arts, Leisure and Food industry have created the most vacancies in the last few months, with most venues and companies fully reopening. In addition, analysts predicted the rate of unemployment would stay at just under 5% for the quarter, however, the figure slightly increased.   Despite the number of job vacancies increasing, the number of people on furlough has decreased to the lowest amount since the scheme was first introduced. Furthermore, the number of people with jobs increased in June and July by 182,000, and has grown by almost 500,000 in the few months prior. However, it is still estimated that the number of employed UK adults is 201,000; lower than before the pandemic started.    The study also found that wages grew from April to June in 2021 by 7% without bonuses and 9% including bonuses. The number of young and old people in work has also increased with the rate of employment up to 75% for the age categories, according to the findings.   Mims Davies, the Minister for Employment, said: 'There are positive signs of recovery in today's jobs figures [but] there is still work to do and we're focused on helping employers fill roles through our Plan for Jobs ' giving people of all ages the skills, support and experience needed to confidently land that next opportunity.'

					50 of the world's largest chemical firms post a 7% decline in sales in 2020, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 50 of the world's largest chemical firms post a 7% decline in sales in 2020: Chemical and Engineering News' recent global survey, has revealed that the top 50 global chemical firms report a decline of 7% in sales from 2019 to £584 billion in 2020. Much of this decline is thought to be mainly due to the pandemic, however, a change in mindset about renewable energy has meant many firms have put their efforts into testing new forms of cleaner energy.   The survey polled the 50 chemical firms with the highest sales during 2020, finding that data from 44 of the 50 firms who reported their annual earnings for 2020 shows a decline of 22%; in comparison to a 28% decline reported by 46 companies in 2019.   The survey also revealed the top earning chemical firms globally, with BASF showing they made £34 billion worth of chemical sales in 2020. BASF also unveiled new plans to decrease their emissions by a quarter, in comparison to 2018. In addition, they have put a lot of effort into testing new and renewable sources of energy, including electrically powered heaters in steam crackers.   The largest UK based chemical firm reported in the study was INEOS, with a reported £23 billion worth of chemical sales. They too are following BASF in their investments into renewable energy, specifically attempting to make hydrogen from water.   Although, on average, there was a 7% decline in chemical sales, not all sectors in the industry were damaged as much as others. Firms that supplied for the food and drink industry saw strong sales, whereas firms supplying for the automotive industry were hit hard by the pandemic. A strong factor in this variation was the decline of oil and gas prices, bringing down chemical prices also.

					Fewer young adults and teenagers report hesitancy towards getting the vaccine, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Fewer young adults and teenagers report hesitancy towards getting the vaccine: A recent survey by the Office of National Statistics has revealed a decline in the number of young adults and teenagers who feel hesitancy towards getting the coronavirus vaccine.    The survey of over 15,000 Brits aged 16 and over also revealed that hesitancy from those aged 18 to 21 has almost halved from 9% to 5% and from 14% to 11% for 16-and-17-year-olds. In addition, hesitancy among 22-25-year-olds dropped, although not as much as younger adults, from 10% to 9%.   The study also uncovered a disparity in hesitancy towards the vaccine, depending on where the participant lives. Adults who live in more deprived areas are more likely to show hesitancy towards getting the vaccine (8%) than people who live in less deprived areas (2%).   Furthermore, ethnicity and religion have an impact on the participant's views towards the vaccine, suggests the survey, with 14% of Muslim adults showing hesitancy, in comparison to 4% of Christian adults who feel the same. In addition, over one in five black or black British adults state hesitancy towards getting the vaccine, compared to 4% of white adults sharing the same views.   The biggest fall in results of adults reporting hesitancy, in terms of location, was found in West Wales and The Valleys (11%-5%); London also had a high drop in hesitancy, falling from 11% to 7%. It was found that the places where hesitancy was initially higher, saw the greatest drop in total.   Overall, public opinion towards the vaccine is mostly good found the survey with 96% of those surveyed having a positive sentiment towards the vaccine; with just 4% reporting hesitancy.

					Use of online legal services more than doubled since 2012 to 44%, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Use of Online Legal Services More Than Doubled Since 2012 to 44%:A survey has revealed that the use of legal services has more than doubled since 2012, climbing to 44%.    The Legal Services Consumer Panel tracker survey observed 3,500 people, also finding that since the start of the pandemic, 54% of consumers have accessed online services at least once.   When choosing which lawyer would be right for them, the survey revealed there  is a variety of opinions about what is best to look for. One in five said the lawyer's reputation is a key factor, up from 73% in 2012, however, only three in 10 said they would shop around before selecting their lawyer, with 74% of the opinion that they had a wide range of professionals to pick from.   Although there are many different ways for someone to pick the best lawyer for them, many people are choosing correctly the survey suggests, as overall customer satisfaction of legal services used has increased from 79%, in 2012, to 83% in the latest polling in addition, satisfaction with the outcome has also increased since 2012, from 84% to 89%.   Just 9% of respondents said they would describe legal services they have received as poor value for money; however, the results depend heavily on the nature of their situation, or case. For example, people dealing with more personal matters such as their family or injury claims, are less likely to be satisfied with the outcome than people with commoditised matters.   The survey also uncovered that 61% of respondents found out about prices through discussions with their lawyers; 8% through their provider's website and 2% through other comparison websites. Furthermore, just 6% stated they found it difficult to understand the price based off the information they were given, with 77% saying they understood the prices.   Sarah Chamber, chair of the Legal Services Consumer Panel, said: "While shopping around has increased over the last ten years, past experience or personal recommendations have remained the most popular ways to choose service providers, highlighting the importance of providing every client with a high-quality service."

					Seven out of 10 charities rate the Charity Commission's service as 'good', finds report
				</title>
				<description>
					 Seven out of 10 charities rate the Charity Commission's service as 'good': An annual government survey looking at the experiences and views of people who use the Charity Commission has found that 69% rated the organisation's service as 'good' -- up 5% since the last survey. Broken down further, the proportion of respondents saying the service is 'very good' was 29%, while 40% rated it 'good'.   In comparison, 7% rated the Charity Commission's service as 'poor' -- down 3% since 2019-20.   The survey found that larger charities polled were less likely to rate the Commission highly.   Amongst charities with an income of £0 - £10,000, 73% rated the services as 'good', compared with 66% of those with an income of £100,000 to £500,000 and 57% with a turnover of between £1m and £5m per year.   The survey polled 1,386 charities for the research and found in addition that the rating of services had improved amongst all customers since last year, with Volunteers the group who had the highest proportion rating the service as 'good'. This was followed by 'Trustee Board or Committee Members (74%), Chairs (73%), Professional Advisors (73%) and Treasurers (72%).    Making contact with the Charity Commission   The research found that the most popular way charities come into contact with the Commission was through its website (78% - down from 84% in 2019/20), followed by using its register (50% down from 57%), and sending emails (43% down from 51%). Around one in six (17%) had called the contact centre, while 10% said they had written letters.   Of all the channels used to make contact with the Charity Commission, the register performed the best according to respondents (85% rated the channel as 'good'), followed by the website (78%), email (72%), direct contact (70%), contact centre (66%) and letter or post (40%).   When asked how easy it is to find information on the website 84% said it was easy, while 17% found the process difficult.

					93% of Federation of Master Builders members have experienced an increase in the cost of materials, finds survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 93% of Federation of Master Builders members have experienced an increase in the cost of materials: A survey carried out by the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) of its members has found that the overwhelming majority (93%) have seen price hikes when it comes to materials needed for projects in the first quarter of 2021 (January - March). This is up from 82% in the last quarter of 2020,   The latest FMB State of Trade Survey which is carried out quarterly among FMB members also found that shortages of tradespeople is also a key issue for the industry, with 38% of builders finding it difficult to hire bricklayers - up from 22% in the last quarter of 2020. More than a third (34%) said that they are having trouble contracting carpenters for projects, which has risen from 23% in Q4 2020. Shortages were noted in almost all of the key trades found the survey, with members reporting difficulty hiring general labourers (up 10%) and plasterers (up 9%).    At the same time as the industry faces shortages, the survey revealed that enquiries have increased at their fastest rate in more than ten years, with 70% of members reporting an increase. More than half the members polled (55%) said they have also seen greater workloads in the first part of 2021, compared to the final quarter of 2020.   The research also found that more FMB members reported an increase in the price builders charge for work to be carried out in Q1 2021, compared to Q4 2020 (66% up from 29%). This is due to rising workloads as well as increases in wages and salaries and rising building costs. It was also revealed that in light of this, some respondents reported they are being undercut on price by rogue traders.    The survey was completed by 215 FMB members between 31 March and 21 April 2021.

				<description>
					 Almost one in two people in UK worry their water is contaminated:  Britons are concerned about the quality of their tap water, according to a new survey, with almost one in five polled consuming over three single-use bottles of water a week as a result.    The study carried out by water purification company, Bluewater, found that 49% of respondents surveyed in the UK were worried about contaminants in their water supply such as lead, plastic particles, bacteria and carcinogens.   The survey of 1,200 members of the general public also found 47 percent buy bottled water or use filtration systems to manage their water consumption.    Findings also reveal that 21% of respondents worry about bacteria in their water supply, while 16% have concerns over plastic particles. Other anxieties include the presence of lead or other harmful metals in drinking water, of which 12% felt was a worry, while 10% were concerned over pharmaceutical contaminants.    Fifteen per cent (15%) of respondents also noted that they have (or know someone who has) had a water supply problem since 2016.    Image Credit: Damien McEvoy Plumbing via Pixabay

				<description>
					 Three in 10 UK adults think about impact on the environment when buying food: A survey has revealed that more people are considering the impact on the environment when it comes to their food purchases, with 29% saying the are shopping more consciously due to climate change.   The survey by First Milk polled 2,161 UK adults in March 2021, finding that three-quarters of respondents are concerned about climate change (76%). It also found that a third of those polled (33%) believe that farming and the production of dairy products is significantly contributing to environmental issues and a change to the earth's climate.    The research highlighted that nearly half of the respondents polled (46%) believe that the rearing of animals for meat is a significant contributing factor to climate change, while 37% said that food waste is.    The survey also asked people about their preferences when it comes to buying and consuming dairy products, with more than three-quarters (78%) saying that they would be more inclined to buy milk and other dairy products if they were from cows that have access to pasture and the outdoors. It also found that 63% of participants were concerned about the welfare of cows used within the UK dairy industry.   The majority of people surveyed (94%) said they buy dairy products for either themselves or for someone else, however, amongst 18-24 year-olds, this figure was considerably smaller (78%).    When it comes to geographical regions, Northern Ireland came top for the purchase of dairy products, with 98% of respondents regularly buying them, compared to 78% in London, the lowest purchaser.    Mark Brooking, sustainability director at First Milk said: '...we all share the responsibility for communicating to consumers about the great work going on across the farming sector and highlighting the importance of the many initiatives that underline the positive benefits of UK farming and food.'

					Survey reveals rail passenger satisfaction at 10-year low
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey reveals rail passenger satisfaction at 10-year low: According to the latest  National Passenger Rail Survey (NPRS) by Transport Focus, rail passenger satisfaction has fallen to the lowest level since 2007.    The poll, which surveys 50,000 passengers found that overall customer satisfaction had dropped to 79% -  which equates to one in five passengers.being dissatisfied.    Twice a year the survey asks passengers to rate their experiences in a number of areas including value for money, the reliability of trains, station satisfaction and how well train companies deal with delays.    The most recent findings show that overall, 46% of journeys were deemed 'satisfactory' when considering the price of a ticket - which dropped to less than a third (31%) among regular passengers.      Of all the train operators, passengers using Great Northern Trains were the least satisfied with a rating of 68% being given for overall satisfaction, followed by Northern (72%), South Western Railway (73% ), TransPennine Express (73%), and Greater Anglia (73%).       The highest ratings were achieved by Heathrow Express (96%), Grand Central (94%), Chiltern Railways (92%), Hull Trains (91%), Merseyrail (90%) and Virgin Trains (90%).        Of the 25 train operators listed, only two, Heathrow Express and Chiltern Railways, improved on their 2017 satisfaction rating, up 5% and 4% respectively. Seven 'significantly declined' according to the report including Great Northern (-9%), Northern (-9%), TransPennine Express (-8%), Greater Anglia (-8%), Thameslink (-6%), ScotRail (-6%), and London North Eastern Railway (-5%)   Chief executive of Transport Focus, Anthony Smith, said: 'Government and the industry must continue to focus on performance. In the longer term, the government's rail review must bring about fundamental change.   'Passenger irritation at poor performance erodes their most basic trust in the industry. Passenger frustration at continual fare increases saps confidence in the system to reform itself.    'A better value for money and more reliable railway must arrive soon for passengers.'
