Britain's Productivity Puzzle: Management, Measurement and Addressing the UK's Economic Under-Performance.
The UK's poor record on productivity has long been a cause for concern and, since 2008's financial crash, such concerns have only increased as our productivity has remained stubbornly low.
The latest thinking on "Britain's Productivity Puzzle" will be considered at this important seminar, which is being staged in Westminster (at 110 Rochester Row) and organised by the Economic Statistics Working Group (ESWG).
Our distinguished contributors will be:
- Chair: Ann Francke: Chief Executive, Chartered Management Institute
- Gaganan Awano: productivity expert, Office for National Statistics
- Tera Allas: productivity expert, McKinsey
- Professor Jonathan Haskel: member, Monetary Policy Committee, Bank of England
The ESWG is a partnership which brings together the Royal Statistical Society, the Office for National Statistics, the Economic Statistics Centre of Excellence, the Society of Professional Economists and the Royal Economic Society.
In the event of demand exceeding the number of spaces available, the organisers reserve the right to prioritise members and invited guests from the various ESWG partner organisations - as well as, on this occasion, those from the Chartered Management Institute.
