star this property answer text <p>This analysis is a welcome initiative by the OECD to improve the international comparability of productivity statistics. It was initiated in response to a request from the ONS to examine how different countries go about measuring total hours worked (which are required to calculate output per hour worked).</p><p> </p><p>When calculating labour productivity there is a trade-off between using the best available data sourced from different countries’ national accounts, or data compiled on the most consistent basis. The OECD research finds that while for many countries this choice makes a minor difference, for the UK it has a larger effect and improves our performance relative to other countries.</p><p> </p><p>The ONS is examining how best to incorporate these findings into their international comparisons of labour productivity and plans to publish an article on this in January 2019; including more detailed breakdowns of how the UK compares with other developed countries on a more consistent basis.</p>

star this property answer text <p>According to the latest ONS estimates UK output per worker was 1.2% higher in 2018Q1 than it was a decade earlier. The UK has significant economic strengths on which we can build, but we need to do more to increase our productivity and to make the most of our untapped potential right across the country. The government’s Industrial Strategy sets out a long-term plan to boost the productivity and earning power of people throughout the UK.</p><p>My rt. hon. Friend Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer recently launched a public call for evidence to support our Business Productivity Review, which will explore what actions could be most effective in improving firm level productivity. The review will look at the impact of management quality on productivity, and how we can most effectively spread best practice across the country to help boost earnings power.</p><p>Our Grand Challenges look to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future, directing the focus of the government and engaging the private sector to ensure we take advantage of major global trends, which will improve people’s lives and the country’s productivity.</p><p>As announced at Autumn Budget 2017 we are investing £300m in the development of ultra-low emission vehicles, are supporting driverless cars and AI, and have provided a further £2.3bn in R&amp;D through extending the National Productivity Investment Fund.</p><p>Through Sector Deals, Government will work with entire sectors to support them to grow and become more productive. We have already announced deals with sectors such as Automotive, AI and Life Sciences with more deals under negotiation.</p><p> </p>
