Closing the Global Productivity Gap
Nearly a quarter of the UK workforce feels unproductive, costing £195 billion in lost revenue. What’s more, Britain is one of the least productive of the G7 nations across both private and public sectors, languishing in sixth place behind the US, France and Germany. In the public sector, this productivity gap is starving the economy of important investment and hitting services in terms of quality and citizen access.
This report explains how technology is both the problem and the solution, allowing us to move faster and exchange ideas more quickly, but also causing information overload and decision fatigue. Drawing on research commissioned by Vodafone and exclusive expert opinion, the key factors influencing productivity are revealed, together with how they can be best applied to the challenges faced by public sector employees, and how taking the right people-focused technological approach can accelerate rather than hinder the process.
