Forming part of a wider piece of work, this report describes the findings of a survey commissioned by Prospect, USDAW, BECTU, Community, Association of Teachers and Lecturers, FDA and the Society of Radiographers. Presented at a Unions21 conference in March 2016, the survey was commissioned to add a vital dimension to the contemporary political and economic discourse around productivity, looking at employees’ perspectives on productivity
The survey had 7,454 responses from shop workers and radiographers to broadcasters and civil servants. The vast majority said they were working harder not smarter, and that productivity could be improved if management listened to staff more and engaged with them over job design, team working, hours and workload.
