Proper use of employee-related data could help boost UK productivity by 3%

Tensor Workforce Management System

The proper use of employee-related data (attendance, skills, qualifications, etc.) could help the UK bolster its productivity levels by around 3%, recent research carried out by innovation charity Nesta has been able to find.

The research found that if companies that do not use data extensively behaved more like data active companies (datavores, data builders and data mixers), this could boost the UK’s productivity by 3%. This is equivalent to an extra £1 per hour worked.

On the other hand, the report also found that data active companies are struggling to source the required technical skills. Around 15% of datavores and 10% of data builders struggled to fill five vacancies or more.

Hasan Bakhshi, director of creative economy at Nesta, said: “Data-savvy businesses in sectors as wide-ranging as manufacturing, financial services, pharmaceuticals and creative media perform more strongly than other firms.

“Addressing the data skills shortages we have identified should be an important element of the chancellor’s strategy for closing the UK’s productivity gap with its competitors.”
