Government urges Scottish businesses to improve their productivity
The Scottish Government has urged HR departments to further increase their efforts towards improving their respective employees’ productivity, a news report has been able to suggest.
At this year’s CIPD Scotland Conference, the Scottish government’s cabinet secretary for fair work, skills and training said that although Scottish businesses had made greater than average strides in this area, boosting productivity by 4.7 per cent since 2007 despite a stagnant UK economy, there was still more to do.
“In 2014, Scottish productivity levels were such that they would still leave us 19th out of the top 20 OECD countries,” Cunningham told delegates in Edinburgh.
“This needs to improve, but by thinking differently. If we follow the same paths we’ve already followed, all we’ll get is the same results. For instance, it’s down to employers to change their recruitment mindset, to look at talent that has traditionally been overlooked. We can’t squander the potential of Scottish talent – the stakes are too high.”
