Episode 33: The productivity paradox – why is the UK lagging behind Europe and what can be done?
A LEADER’S IMPACT – a podcast for business owners, managers and changemakers.
Britain is less productive than most ‘Group of Seven’ economies.
Figures show the UK generates £46.92 of output per hour, compared to £58.88 in the US, £55.83 in Germany and £55.50 in France.
Conversely, the UK is now the second-largest data producer in the world and academics have described data as the fuel of the economies of the future.
In this podcast, Steve Cox, Director of Business Intelligence at IRIS Software Group and Pete Wilkinson, Founder and CEO at Reclaro, explore whether the data revolution could reverse the trend of middling performance and years of lacklustre growth, looking practically at how companies today can unlock the ‘data’ opportunity.
