Increasing productivity relies on getting more out of the same amount of effort and resources that goes into a business. What’s alarming for business leaders is that the reverse seems to be happening: The global economy appears to be slowly drifting into a productivity crisis. One of the symptoms is that labor productivity growth – output per worker – is on a declining trend.

Recruiting, engaging, and retaining a  high-skilled workforce are critical in reversing this productivity slowdown. Research from TCB and the Committee for Economic Development discusses what’s behind this worsening trend and addresses ways in which Human Capital leaders can focus their efforts to reskill employees in order to improve business efficiency and profitability.
