How to solve the Productivity Puzzle

How to solve the Productivity Puzzle

Over the past months, the media has regularly reported on the UK’s ‘productivity puzzle’, a situation in which our economy is growing while the productivity rates are declining when compared to our global competitors.

The situation is so significant that during the last budget announcement, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, identified productivity as the government’s number one priority.

Unipart is setting out to raise awareness of how to improve productivity through a major national media campaign and a web based information hub which can be found at

A key part of the hub will be a new series of video documentaries called “Solving the Productivity Puzzle” in which business journalist Juliet Mann investigates why productivity is so essential to the economy and, most importantly, what can be done about it.

She interviews a wide range of senior industry leaders including CBI Director General John Cridland, McLaren Automotive CEO Mike Flewitt, Unipart Chairman and CEO John Neill, Institute of Directors Chief Economist James Sproule, and many others

Unipart Chairman and Group Chief Executive John Neill explained:

“Productivity is at the heart of our nation’s quality of life and yet Britain is lagging behind our global competitors. Economists talk about this as a puzzle, but we believe that Unipart has the solution.

“The Government has made productivity improvement a major priority, and Unipart is pleased to be able to play our part in helping to unlock the potential that exists amongst millions of people in the UK to not only be more productive, but to do so by becoming more engaged with their organisations,”
