This report is about the BBC’s management of its workforce. The BBC (the British
Broadcasting Corporation) is the UK’s main public service broadcaster, providing a
wide range of television, radio and digital services. In 2015-16, it received £3.74 billion of public funding from television licence fees, to enable it to meet its public service broadcasting responsibilities. Technological developments, new forms of competition and changes in how audiences access and consume content are all impacting on the media and broadcasting sectors. The BBC has had to adapt to these changes, while at the same time receiving less funding.
