Further Research into UK Business Performance

After publication of the report 2015 Trends in Competency Management, we undertook a second phase of the research.

Findings are not being published from our extensive discussions and meetings over the following year with executives of organisations that are major actors in UK economic growth. Some of the material is counter-intuitive and commercially sensitive. Our findings go to the heart of why productivity in the UK is near the bottom of the G7 and the cost of doing business in the UK tends to be 20% to 30% higher than in most of the rest of Europe, and what businesses can do to escape those norms.

We are the research lead for this project. If you are an executive in a large UK organisation or a multinational with a significant UK presence and would like to arrange a confidential discussion about the subject, particularly in the light of upcoming Brexit, please contact us.
