Alliance Manchester Business School recently hosted three events focused on productivity in the UK.
Productivity dynamics in times of crisis and recovery
AMBS’ Professor Bart van Ark and a panel experts discussed how the coronavirus pandemic is impacting productivity today, and how government, business and workforce needs to adapt in order to drive productivity during the recovery.
Productivity, public services and wellbeing
Diane Coyle, Bennett Professor of Public Policy, University of Cambridge and a panel of experts discussed productivity in public services, how this links to productivity in the private sector and broader concepts of well-being, and how innovative practices could increase national prosperity.
UK regional inequalities, levelling up and the post-COVID challenges
This event examined the likely implications of the coronavirus pandemic for the 'levelling up' agenda by considering the immediate shocks to the system which are currently at play, the likely medium-term fall-out from these shocks, and the long-term economic and policy implications of these short and medium term disturbances.
