Led by Sir Charlie and chief executive Tony Danker, Be the Business was launched in November 2017 with funding and support from the UK government and some of Britain’s leading companies. They work with the entire business community to share what works for today’s best businesses with every company that wants to learn and improve.

Be the Business is spearheading a business-led campaign to help companies across the UK improve their productivity. It is supported by leading UK businesses.

You can use their free benchmarking tool to find out how your business compares to best practice. The benchmarking facility is based on an extensive review of evidence around what drives greater productivity for firms across sectors. You will get instant feedback and an action report that provides tips and guidelines around areas where you may have scored less strongly (and you can browse the Be the Business library of tips more broadly, too).

Free to use but you will need to register – see Be the Business benchmarking tool
