Workshop on Productivity Practices in the West of England
To support the development of the local Industrial Strategy, the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has funded Universities to provide analytical support to Local Enterprise Partnerships. A preliminary review report is available for consultation online: Productivity Practices: A review report. The workshop, to which you are being invited, forms the final stage of this project.
During this workshop delegates will review and add to the latest findings of our research on productivity practices and discuss how to strengthen productivity in local businesses with peers, academics and LEP representatives, to share good practice and provide insight for policy making and the local industrial strategy. We expect the workshop discussions to provide insight to inform priorities for business support, for instance addressing barriers to developing effective management practices.
