In a business context, how people work, what they do and what they deliver has a direct impact on the productivity of a business or other organisation, which in turn drives the culture, profitability, competitiveness and long-term viability of that organisation.

Here you will find details of programmes, events, grant schemes, surveys, webinars and blogs all on the topic of productivity.

Business Improvement Programme

The Business Improvement Programme has been developed to support businesses to deliver sustainable efficiency and productivity gains that will create market competitiveness and a solid operational platform for future growth. The programme is open to those businesses who recognise that continuous improvement is key to sustainable growth and that their workflows can always be better.

Productivity Survey

We commissioned this independent survey to help us understand how businesses are approaching productivity and how we can support business to address the challenges and opportunities for improving it.

This was an independent, online Productivity survey with a mix of semi-structured questions. Hosted by 4insight, the survey used their in-house survey software to enable cross tabulations of various questions, allowing for comparison of difference segments, sectors, positions and business age.

349 responses were received and after data quality checks and cleaning 217 data sets were useable. The largest group of respondents were owner/founders but also included CEO’s and Directors, middle managers and supervisor/team leader levels and involved businesses that had been established for 1-21 years or more, across 15 industry sectors.


Productivity Survey webinar - What Jersey Businesses Think

This webinar hosted by The Jersey Chamber of Commerce delivered the results of the productivity survey.

The webinar covers:

  • Highlights from the recent Jersey Business Productivity survey results
  • Top tips to improve productivity from organisations
  • Barriers to improving productivity within Jersey

Prof Bob Emiliani presentation on Productivity

During Productivity Week in early July 2022 Prof. Bob Emiliani was our guest as the keynote speaker at the Chamber of Commerce lunch.  This presentation is designed to inform a discussion on the role of leaders in creating a culture that delivers increased productivity, engaged people and better profits.

During the presentation Bob discussed the concept of lean leadership and how it can transform organisational performance.  It also covers;

  • The change challenge
  • The role of leaders in creating a culture of empowered improvement
  • Why now

Productivity Support Scheme Grant

The primary aim of this Government of Jersey grant scheme is to enable businesses in Jersey to make productivity improvements that would not be achieved without support.

To apply for grant support through the Productivity Support Scheme, the business will need to identify a productivity improvement project and have a detailed and fully costed project delivery plan.
