star this property answer text <p>The Department, together with BEIS, has consulted with key stakeholders from business and civil society as a first phase of establishing the Responsible Business Leadership Group. We have also held early conversations with potential candidates for chairs, and are considering membership composition. We are also carefully considering the relationship of the group to other business councils, to ensure that the group is complementary to these. We are also conducting research as input to the group on what specific questions it should seek to answer; and have initiated research into potential engagement with academic institutions. The Secretary of State will be making an announcement on the chairs once they are confirmed.</p> more like this

Following a series of engagement events, the then Minister for Civil Society launched a public consultation on the future definition of public service mutuals on 19th July 2019. The consultation, which closed on 18th October 2019, included proposals to widen the current definition to include organisations that don’t originate in the public sector and to strengthen and clarify requirements around employee influence, independence, and the distribution of profits.
