Employee productivity has a huge impact on business profitability.

Unfortunately, according to studies by the IoD and the UK government amongst others, most small and medium sized businesses suffer from low productivity. Business owners struggle to find good employees and then make them productive.

The good news is that almost every business has a large improvement opportunity as a result. In this course we help business owners understand how to measure and improve productivity and take advantage of this opportunity.

The course is practical and covers short-term tactical changes that deliver immediate productivity improvements through to longer-term positioning for superior profits.
