For many years the UK has grappled with how to create better jobs and boost productivity, thereby increasing people’s prosperity especially in northern regions of the country.

The COVID-19 recession puts these challenges under the microscope like never before. Because if we are to reboot the UK economy then we need high value and well paid jobs, that create high value, to use economic and natural resources efficiently, and drive sustained growth through technological change and innovation. Only highly productive jobs will pay more and improve people’s well-being.

At this Vital Topics lecture Juergen Maier, former CEO of Siemens UK, will discuss his views on the impact of COVID-19 on UK productivity and talk about how industry now needs to work closer than ever before with policymakers and other stakeholders to create a much more focused industrial strategy and address the UK’s productivity puzzle.
