star this property answer text <p>The government has not made an assessment of the proportion of productivity growth in the last five years that is attributable to financial technology.</p><p> </p><p>However, the Government has taken significant steps to increase competition in financial services, including creating an environment in which Fintech firms can grow and compete with incumbents. The Competition and Market Authority has led the Open Banking initiative, bringing more competition and innovation to financial services. The FCA has also established the Innovation Hub and Regulatory Sandbox to support Fintech, both of which are held up as global examples of best practice. Further information on the Government’s efforts to promote FinTech can be found in the FinTech Sector Strategy, published in March 2018.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p><em>Thriving at Work; The Stevenson/Farmer Review of mental health and employers</em>, published in October 2017, sets out a compelling business case for employers to support their staff’s mental health. In the review, an independent study on the cost to employers of poor employee mental health commissioned from Deloitte found that:</p><ul><li>There is a large annual cost to employers of between £33 billion and £42 billion (with over half of the cost coming from presenteeism – when individuals are less productive due to poor mental health in work) with additional costs from sickness absence and staff turnover.</li><li>The cost of poor mental health to Government is between £24 billion and £27 billion. This includes costs in providing benefits, falls in tax revenue and costs to the NHS.</li><li>The cost of poor mental health to the economy as a whole is more than both of those together from lost output, at between £74 billion and £99 billion per year.</li></ul><p>The Government’s full response to the review is included in <em>Improving Lives: The Future of Work Health and Disability</em> where we set out a broad ranging strategy to further support disabled people and people with health conditions – including mental health conditions - to enter and thrive in work.</p><p> </p>
