Will The Pandemic Help Solve The UK's 'Productivity Puzzle'?
The UK’s productivity levels have failed to recover from the 2008 financial crisis. Following record-low levels of productivity in 2019, the pandemic has created potential for the UK to get back on course.
In this report, Criticaleye Partner, Capita, explains how the key to unlocking post-pandemic productivity not only lies in further and greater technology adoption, but also in reskilling.
Key takeaways include:
The UK’s per hour worked output was at 16.3 percent. This is lower than other G7 countries, according to The Office for National Statistics.
Capita’s YouGov research revealed that 42 percent of respondents believed that positive changes to their personal productivity are a long-term trend.
According to their Great Opportunity research, Capita found that 53 percent of decision makers cited collaboration tools within the top three methods for driving productivity and deemed them most effective for their organisations.
