Ann Francke, CMI, comments on the today's UK productivity stats PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 09 January 2017
In light of the ONS UK productivity statistics for Q3 showing an improvement in productivity, Ann Francke, Chief Executive of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) has released the following statement: “Despite productivity improving, the UK continues to sustainably  lag behind our G7 competitors. The ‘always on’ culture of constantly checking emails on smartphones and tablets out of office hours is having a deleterious effect on the health of managers, which has a direct impact on productivity. UK workers already have the longest hours in Europe and yet we’re less productive.

“Having good quality leadership and management is the biggest factor in determining productivity. Good, skilled managers know that they need to switch off and empower their employees to do the same. As such, they strike the necessary work/life balance, which must be a priority for every organisation facing up to the challenge of improving productivity. Through improving management and leading by example, productivity will go from strength to strength.”
