Smarter working Britain: key findings from the ground-breaking research

  1. 1. Smarter Working Britain The first ever study of how better business connectivity would help Britain's economy shows that it could add up to a £30 billion boost to our annual productivity. Here’s how much extra productive time we could gain per employee, per year, if we were all better connected. The time gained through a 10% increase in productivity when working on the move Work anywhere Make work a thing to do, not a place to go 11hours The increase in productive time per person, per year Cut down commuting Work from home more often 14hours The time saved per year through getting things done in real time, on the spot 40 Do more, and do it better Complete tasks more efficiently hours The estimated saving each year from improved connectivity while at customer locations 59 Make customer contact count Cut down on trips back to base and deliver better service hours The time saved from fewer meetings and less travel 54 Make meetings matter Cut down travel, and make every moment in a meeting valuable hours We commissioned an independent report by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) to look into the impact a more ‘Connected Britain’ would have on the economy. Cebr’s new study, Smarter Working Britain, set out to understand what could be achieved in the coming years if organisations were to take full advantage of existing technology. The research confirms that the UK is missing out on potential additional growth worth £30 billion due to a connectivity deficit in Britain’s biggest businesses and the public sector. Smarter Working Britain is published by O2, in partnership with the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr).
