The Office for National Statistics (ONS) states that, “The average German worker produces more in four days than a British equivalent does in five.” The ONS report pointed out that there has been a nosedive in productivity for every member of the G7 since the financial crisis of the late 2000s, but the impact on the UK has been twice as severe. It is vital to the success of the UK manufacturing industry long term to commit to improving its competitiveness.
