BISL report underlines leisure sector’s worth


A new study commissioned by Business in Sport and Leisure (BISL) and compiled by global consulting firm Oliver Wyman has underlined the “significant contribution” of the UK leisure sector. State of the UK Leisure Industry: A Driver


for Growth – launched at an event in central London on 12 June – found that the industry generates in excess of £200bn each year. The study also reveals that leisure employs 2.6 million people, a figure second only to the retail sector, and represents 8.8 per cent of the total UK workforce. More than one fifth of 16- to 25-year-olds working in the UK (21


per cent) are currently employed within the sector, which is more than the combined total for manufacturing, construction and financial services. BISL’s report, which aims to demonstrate


the role that leisure can play in creating jobs and delivering growth, contains a number of recommendations for the government to better support the sector. Recommendations include encouraging


businesses to employ more 16- to 25-year- old NEETs (those who are Not in Education, Employment or Training) through a flagship employment programme.
