Smarter Working Britain

How improved connectivity will benefit the UK

Overview

O2, in conjunction with the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr), ran a comprehensive research project to evaluate the business outcomes and economic benefits generated by better connectivity in large UK businesses and the public sector.

The report found that giving employees full access to business information systems and software applications, both in and out of the office, can lead to productivity gains that increase working time by 178 hours a year – that’s an 8.9% increase. Which translates into an average increase in annual Gross Value Added (GVA) per worker of £1,895. The total potential economic benefits amount to £30 billion a year.
