Former trade minister and Waitrose managing director Lord Mark Price talks to the BBC’s economics editor Kamal Ahmed about how including employees can drive business success.

Price’s new book, Fairness for All: Unlocking the Power of Employee Engagement, is the first book to really explore the business model of his former employer, the John Lewis Partnership. Price looks at the example of John Lewis alongside those of other companies to explain the principles and practice of including employees in the direction and success of a business.

Price is a former managing director of Waitrose and former deputy chairman of the John Lewis Partnership. Last year, he was made a life peer and joined the Government as Minister for Trade and Investment. Until recently, he was Minister of State for Trade Policy in the new Department for International Trade.

Here he talks to Ahmed, economics editor and former business editor of BBC News, and a former political editor of The Observer, business editor of the Daily Telegraph and communications director at the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
