Be the Business was established in 2017 to address the underperformance of UK productivity. Chaired by Sir Charlie Mayfield, Be the Business is spearheading a business-led drive to help companies across the UK improve their performance.
We provide the inspiration, tools and resources for businesses to get started on improving their own performance. We enable business leaders to identify where the opportunities are for their businesses to improve, and we extract the best advice from other businesses on the approaches that are proven to work.
In addition to providing benchmarking tools and advice we are also working with businesses across the country to understand what works on the ground, constantly learning, evolving and sharing that with businesses in all four corners of the UK.
Use the free benchmarking tool.
Is your firm reaching its full potential? Find out how your business compares to best practice using our self-assessment tool. Get instant feedback and an action report that provides tips and guidelines around areas where you may have scored less strongly (and browse our library of tips more broadly, too).
The tool is aimed at business leaders and unit heads, but we encourage all employees to use it to identify business improvements. While our primary focus is companies of 10 or more employees, we encourage people from businesses of all sizes to use it.
Our aim is to benefit firms across the UK, so we developed our benchmarking facility based on an extensive review of evidence around what drives greater productivity for firms across sectors. But you know your business best, so put our tool to the test.
