Tharsus’ Chief Operations Officer (COO) John Lucas has shared his insights on productivity in the first of a series of videos we are working on for Be the Business.
Tharsus is proud to be a supporter of Be the Business, a movement of businesses of all shapes and sizes across the UK who want to improve their own performance and share their advice and experiences to help others do the same.
Improving productivity is a key aim of the government’s industrial strategy and emerging machine and robotic technology can potentially play a huge part in this. The UK’s productivity gap must be bridged. Studies have shown* that for every hour spent at work, we make 20% less than a company in Germany. The relative quality of UK leadership and management, as compared with other advanced economies, is considered to be a common factor in this.
Launched by the Productivity Leadership Group in summer last year, Be the Business is working to address this issue in three principal ways; by inspiring leaders with actionable insight that helps businesses to set goals and measure progress; by providing modern tools that enable businesses to work out how good they are compared to others they choose and by encouraging sharing of best practice within communities of businesses across the UK.
Tharsus is delighted to contribute to this catalyst for transforming British business culture. If Be the Business can help a lot of companies to do just a little bit better we could add £130bn in value to the UK economy.
We’ve produced three videos in association with Be the Business and our first one went live on the Be the Business website last week. COO John Lucas shares his insights on successful delivery, explaining his three Ps; plans, processes and People.
You can watch the video here. We’ll be sharing the next videos as they go live.
