The pathway to productive people: Ricoh's report explores the UK's productivity puzzle

In what continues to be a period of economic uncertainty and instability, businesses are, more than ever, microscopically reviewing the way they work. In unison, many are facing enormous pressure to modernise and digitally transform to ensure that they remain competitive, robust and, most importantly, future-proof. 

Last year, Ricoh partnered with Oxford Economics to conduct a study into how digital transformation in the workplace directly affects the wider UK economy. The Economy of People report found that aligning the key elements of culture, workplace and technology to create the ‘optimal office’ not only positively impacts businesses directly, but at a macro level too. Fostering the link between performance and productivity to achieve the optimal office could be worth a staggering £36.8 billion in GDP for the United Kingdom. 

At Ricoh, we believe that the pathway to productivity lies in organisations implementing innovative and bespoke solutions that focus on people, workplace, process and technology. Together, these offer one cohesive and impactful workstyle footprint within any business environment – a footprint that will enhance productivity and profitability at both a micro and macro level. 

The Pathway to Productive People is an approach developed by Ricoh to help businesses with their transformation process – a guide for those taking the first steps into workstyle innovation and looking to achieve the optimal office where people, workplace, process and technology are nicely balanced. Whilst there is much to consider, and the ultimate execution may seem daunting and complex, it doesn’t have to be. All it takes is bravery, and this begins with understanding your people and the way they work. 

What could workstyle innovation mean for your business?

Interviews

An interview with the world's first chief Workplace Officer

Workplace Transformation is a process that touches every part of the business and requires full participation from HR, Ops, Facilities and IT. But can any one of these departments take responsibility for the big picture – the strategy, the vision? And if not, then who should? Simone Fenton-Jarvis is the world’s first Chief Workplace Officer. If that job role is new to you, don’t worry – it’s new to most people... Read the full interview >

Politics vs data when making workplace decisions

When talking politics, we often mean increasing power through emotions. It is assumed, on the other hand, that data represents fact. Therefore, the discussion around politics vs data could be presented as what people feel is right vs what is actually known. But how far is that borne out in practice? That was the basis for part of our roundtable with technology provider Ricoh... Read the full article >
