Productivity: it's on our agenda.
Is it on yours?
The slowdown in measured economic productivity growth has been the subject of considerable recent debate. After at least a decade-long hiatus, productivity has found its way back in the New Zealand economic vernacular, and it’s now permeating governments’ agendas as well as the boardrooms of corporate New Zealand.
Despite this, only a small percentage of organisations measure and report on the productivity levels of their workers. This means the majority of New Zealand organisations do not have the insights they need to implement sustainable and effective measures to boost productivity.
We realise that New Zealand is crying out for revolutionary change that moves organisations into a new era of productivity performance, that’s why we can help organisations in both the public and private sectors become more effective, more integrated and bold in raising their productivity and global competitiveness.
We can assist you with:
