“Productivity isn’t everything, but in
the long run, it’s almost everything”

National Productivity Week is an initiative to raise awareness of the importance of productivity and its impact on the economy, society and the environment, uniting key stakeholders across the UK.

The Productivity Institute

The Productivity Institute is a UK-wide research organisation exploring what productivity means for business, for workers and for communities – how it is measured and how it truly contributes to increased living standards and well-being.
