Are you like the UK?

The UK languishes at the bottom of most productivity league tables.  We seem to be a low skill, low performing country.  Lots of 'good' jobs have been taken out of the economy and replaced with part-time, low skill employment.

The UK must start to invest in skills - and skill-based employment sectors.  Otherwise it will continue its 'race to the bottom' - lots of jobs but no satisfying employment or careers.

How does the relate to yo ur business?  Are you upskilling your workforce? Does the work they do demand it?

If not, think about how you have organised the work.  H ow will you engage and motivate your workforce if they are in undemanding, low skill jobs?
