Productive moi?

When analysing dental businesses and individual team members I try to keep in mind “5 E”s that apply to successful clinical practice, effective, ergonomic, economic, ethical, efficient. I have always believed that principals, and those who truly have “skin in the game” perform better on most, if not all, of the “5 E”s.

The workforce generally could learn a lot from some of my case studies.

RBS Chief Economist’s Weekly Brief – Shifting sands

Harder, better, faster, stronger?  Hardly.  Yet another year has passed without any productivity growth in the UK.  In fact, output per hour worked actually fell 0.2% over the year to Q4 2018.  The only reason the economy grew at all was because more people worked than ever before.  Yet each worker now produces a mere 2% more than before the 2008 recession struck (whereas our American cousins are churning out 15% more every hour worked).  Bad news is that the awful run is unlikely to let-up soon; both weak investment and slowing trade are likely to drag on productivity growth in 2019.
