The newsletter from the Chief Economist of RBS landed in our in-box this morning. I quote:
The UK’s labour market recovery has been impressive but the same cannot be said for productivity. Output per hour in the UK was 18 percentage points below the average for the rest of the major G7 advanced economies in 2014. This is the widest gap since the series began in 1991. Since 2007, only Italy has had weaker average productivity growth rates than the UK within the G7. The mantra should be: “Productivity, Productivity, Productivity”.
This is our mantra too! Have a look at the video to see but one of the simple ways we can contribute to your productivity gains.
