MONTREAL, Sept. 13, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Groupe Les Affaires is proud to launch the Productivity 202020 program today. The objective of this program is to enable Québec to increase its productivity by 20% by 2020, thereby ensuring the competitiveness of Québec companies. This challenge is being issued to the business community, because this ambitious but realistic objective can only be achieved by increasing productivity in every organization.
Productivity is crucial to the future of Québec, and according to HEC Montréal's Centre sur la productivité et la prospérité, the province has been falling behind in this respect for the past 30 years. Average corporate productivity is increasing more quickly in the rest of Canada and around the world.
The Productivity 202020 program, which is supported by IBM, addresses the current issues affecting the business community and proposes appropriate and practical solutions. The motto for the program is "identify, resolve and prosper!"
In order to provide the widest possible perspective on a topic as complex as productivity, our seasoned reporters will team up with leading experts on the subject. The content will appear in various formats: columns, white papers, videos, news reports, etc.
The program is also relying on the participation of its ambassadors. These contributors support Productivity 202020 and are committed to increasing awareness of the importance of productivity among the Québec business community. They are also intent on gathering together as many stakeholders as possible with a view to discussing solutions aimed at ensuring the competitiveness of our companies.
