Cracking the performance code: how firms succeed

Cracking the performance code: how firms succeed

Work Foundation
01 January 2005

Nearly 3,000 UK firms of all sizes and from all sectors were surveyed and ranked in a Company Performance Index (CPI). The results show that in terms of added value the top third of firms out-perform the bottom two-thirds by £1,600 per worker per annum.

This means that if just 10 per cent of the UK’s lower performing firms moved to the performance levels of the top third of UK firms by acting on the recommendations in this report, the UK’s productivity growth rate would increase by 0.25 per cent per annum.
