UK Competitiveness is being put to the test like never before, read Microsoft’s latest research to find out how UK organisations can drive sustainable growth.
A new model of competitiveness devised by academics at Goldsmiths, University of London, in partnership with Microsoft has found almost half (46%) of UK firms fall into the lowest-performing category, posing a risk to UK prosperity.
As organisations continue to navigate COVID-19 and prepare for Brexit, identifying a way through will be crucial.
While the belief that the nation can survive and thrive remains high, with 71% of the UK confident that their organisation can navigate the pandemic, a determination needs to be aligned to action. This new report from Microsoft, its customers and some of the brightest minds across UK enterprise and academia identifies a path towards growth.
Small-scale changes to existing business models now could drive growth for UK organisations and a £48.25 billion boost to the UK economy. And this value is just a starting point. If leaders fully adopt a sustainable growth strategy, this multi-billion pound opportunity would grow considerably, bringing lasting social prosperity too.
