Productivity through People (PtP) is a management training programme launched in 2017 which aims to drive up productivity among small businesses by embedding people-centred management practices through training, support and extensive peer to peer engagement.
Originally developed through an industry-led alliance, the programme is underpinned by a collaborative approach, bringing together four UK delivery partners and a number of industry partners.
Through combining classroom-based study with experiential learning and the establishment of deep peer trust networks, the programme aims to provide a distinctive offer to small and mid-sized businesses.
This report outlines findings from the evaluation of PtP, covering the period from programme launch in 2017 through to 2019. This involved an evaluation survey, data matching and interviews with participants, delivery partners delivering the programme and industry partners.
