Despite some very minor signs of improvement, UK productivity still remains woefully poor. Even recent signs of growth have been attributed to fewer hours being worked rather than increased output. Whatever steps UK organisations are taking to turnaround productivity it seems that they are not having the desired impact quickly enough.
But, can we really afford to wait?
The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond has suggested that the productivity challenge is at the heart of much of the “disaffection with our politics and society” and that an uplift in productivity could “put right many of the challenges that we are facing across our society.”1
Mr Hammond has already blamed poor performing managers for the £84 billion productivity loss, a view backed by the Office of National Statistics who stated there was a ‘significant correlation between management practices and labour productivity’ reporting that each 0.1 increase in their “management score” is associated with a 9.6% increase in productivity.
With such a lot at stake, organisations must act fast to increase management capability and close the productivity gap.
