Come join us for a business breakfast event in Cambridge in December. We need to talk about productivity. We have bacon rolls and pastries and a bottomless coffee pot, and a couple of hours to move this forward.
There is one thing for sure in the sea of uncertainly businesses now find themselves navigating through, Britain will need to build a highly productive and internationally competitive economy, and the crucial factor in doing so will be the quality of our leaders and managers.
The UK’s productivity lags 18% behind the average of it’s G7 competitors – 35% more than Germany. For every hour spent at work, we make 20% less than a company in Germany. Despite the enormous changes to business and society through digital transformation we are less productive today than we were in the 1970’s. There is government money behind this high profile strategic initiative, we can make a difference but we need to start now.
Gain a insight into the East of England’s productivity ranking and find out how we compare to other UK regions. How can we inform, educate and collaborate with the businesses of Britain to restore us to the forefront of business performance worldwide?
Recent analysis has identified that there are four main drivers of regional productivity:
- Educational attainment of young people at 16 and skills development
- Transport Links that widen access to labour
- Better management practices
- A higher proportion of firms who export and innovate.
It’s a great networking opportunity, you can meet participants be from a variety of business sectors in East Anglia, we have senior public and private sector businesses joining to challenge and debate how we feel about our productivity issues.
