What makes firms productive? Lessons learned from across G7 economies

What makes a business productive? Do businesses have a sense of what they’re good at and where to improve? This episode of Productivity Puzzles looks at the Productive Business Index produced by Be The Business, one of The Productivity Institute’s strategic partners. The index, which has been published since 2020, serves as a barometer on how business leaders think their organisation is faring. The discussion looks at what UK businesses can do to catch up with peers in the G7 and how governments can help them to get there.

Host Professor Bart van Ark is joined by:

  • Anthony Impey, CEO at Be the Business
  • Hannah Barlow, Managing Director at Dunsters Farm
  • Barry Leahey, President at Playdale
