* Solve Productivity ProblemsSolve Productivity Problems

Time: 8:57 am

According to Office for National Statistics data, productivity in the D2N2 region (Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire) is about 88% of the rest of the UK. In 2015 this meant that an average worker in D2N2 produced around £10,700 less in gross value added (GVA) than an average worker in England. Aggregating across all employees in D2N2, this amounts to a productivity gap of more than £8.2 billion! In light of these stark figures, it’s easy to see how increasing productivity could benefit a business’s bottom line, but addressing how to tackle this is often much harder – and is something that’s being discussed in earnest across the region.
