Webinar: The productivity challenge

Finding the balance between risk, growth and innovation

webinar description

What does it take to tackle slow growth in times of change?
Find out in PwC’s Australia in Transition webcast – Thursday 9 February 2:00pm AEDT.

“There is an opportunity to change productivity from being a perceived dirty word around cost reduction because it is not. Productivity at the end of day is a measure; it’s a ratio, where I encourage organisations to think about productivity is taking waste out of their organisations and redeploying that to the new growth areas.” — Neil Plumridge.
Australia has experienced over 25 years of continuous economic growth, but times are changing here and globally. We’re seeing increasing global ‘anxiety’ that growth in productivity has slowed or stopped. Australia’s labour productivity increased by 1.9 per cent in 2014-15, and our multi-factor productivity by 0.8 per cent in that same time. We’re also starting to see the impact of slow growth and rising inequality driving a sentiment that we’ve seen reflected in UK’s Brexit and in the 2016 US election.

Register for PwC’s Australia in transition webcast where we hear from the Grattan Institute’s Jim Minifie and PwC Consulting’s Managing Partner Neil Plumridge talk through the opportunities to stop the slow growth trap for both our economy and for business.
