The competitive dynamics of many industries have changed considerably over the past decade and perhaps none more so than in publishing. There is no doubt that this industry continues to undergo structural changes that compel businesses to adapt and transform themselves to the demands and disruption caused by innovative new media technologies. But how have the workforce responded to these dynamic changes and what has been the impact on industry performance? This paper presents the findings from a comparative time-series analysis (1997-2013) of the UK Publishing Industry and compares it to other industries categorised within the UK Creative Industries. In doing so, it extends our understanding of inter-industry workforce performance and provide an insight into how the UK Publishing Industry has adapted to digital media over two decades change and turbulence.
