Londoners set the pace for high workplace productivity

Londoners

Workers in London are the most productive in Britain, according to official data. Analysis by the ONS showed that workers in the capital produced 40% more per hour than the UK average in 2013. Berkshire, Derby and Milton Keynes were also in the top 10. The study, which measured regions in terms of gross value added, also showed that cities with high levels of foreign investment performed strongly. Japanese car makers Toyota and Honda's plants in Derby and Swindon have helped to improve productivity in those areas. The ONS also suggested that the lowest productivity regions were in the most rural areas, with parts of Wales and Cornwall performing the worst.
