Productivity Week 2023
Why is productivity important?
As productivity increases so does the standard of living within the economy, as worker earnings tends to rise in pace. With higher productivity, organisations try to hire more workers. The increased demand for labour bids up the wage rate and the gains from higher productivity flow through to the workers. For an organisation, higher productivity increases resilience, sustainability, and profits.
For the second year running Jersey Business has commissioned a productivity survey, to identify the barriers and challenges to productivity within Jersey. We will be holding a webinar on Thursday 8th June to deliver the results.
Building on the Productivity survey from 2022, Jersey Business has organised a series of events to focus on productivity during the week commencing 26th June 2023. There is something for anyone with an interest to improve productivity within their organisation.
