Solving the Productivity Puzzle: Productivity through People – A networking and speaker event at Aston Business School

By adopting High Performance Workplace Practices, a business can become more productive and develop a better engaged workforce.

A key route to achieving this is the development of leadership and management skills, enabling SME leaders to adopt management best practices and drive increases in turnover, productivity and growth.

Join our Aston Business Network event where Professor Mark Hart (Professor of Small Business and Entrepreneurship at Aston University and Deputy Director of the national Enterprise Research Centre), will be talking about routes to improving productivity and the benefits they bring to business longevity and growth.

We will also be launching the Productivity through People programme in the Midlands. Productivity through People is a national programme born out of a unique collaboration between the public and private sectors. It is co-produced by Be the Business - an industry-led alliance of trade bodies - world-class industry leaders BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce and Siemens and leading UK business schools at Aston, Bath, Lancaster and Strathclyde Universities, with support from Local Enterprise Partnerships. By providing a framework for new leadership styles, Productivity through People helps bridge the gap between leaders and staff, empowering the front-line workforce to improve efficiency and competitiveness by directly solving business and customer problems.
