PRODUCTIVITY AWARENESS WEEK 2018
The National Competitiveness and Productivity Council is preparing to host its 5th Annual Productivity Awareness Week under the theme: “Innovation for Greater Productivity” during the period October 15–19, 2018.
A key factor in increasing the performance of a business or organisation is innovation. It is through innovation that enterprises, as well as organisations, are able to improve output and efficiency for less effort and cost. Therefore a business cannot have sustained productivity without constantly innovating.
It is in this vein that the Council has decided to focus on Innovation and make the call for action to all citizens to embrace an innovative mindset. Embracing innovation requires a paradigm shift in thinking by policy makers, business practitioners and the citizenry as a whole.
The activities slated for Productivity Awareness Week will focus on innovative practices such as Fintech, research for productivity, adaptation of new technologies and creative ways of solving daily problems in customer service.
The Council has partnered with many agencies including the government and the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank to showcase innovative projects/services at the Financial Administration Centre during the week October 15–19. The public is invited to visit the display.
