Making Public Sector Productivity Practical

Despite showing slow productivity growth over the past decade, the public sector has performed better than the private sector and there is quite a bit of scope for further improvement. This instalment of Productivity Puzzles delves into how and why productivity could grow in the public sector.

This episode accompanies the publication of the Making Public Sector Productivity Practical report.

Our guests:

  • Paul Abraham, Managing Director & Client Partner at Capita Public Service
  • Stephen Aldridge, Chief Economist and Director of Analysis and Data at the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities
