Government launches productivity app for hospitality businesses

An app designed to increase productivity in hospitality businesses has been launched by a government-backed group of business leaders and associations.

Introduced as part of the government's productivity plan, the ‘How good's your business really?' (HGYBR) app allows hospitality businesses to benchmark themselves against their competitors and offers guidance on steps to take to improve.

Using short surveys, the app assesses a business across five key performance indicators. Once a business has filled in the surveys they are offered an assessment of how much extra profit they could be making by improving their performance.

The app has been developed by a productivity group of senior business leaders headed by John Lewis Partnership chairman Charlie Mayfield.

Jeremy Anderson, a member of the productivity leadership group and chairman of KPMG's global financial services practice, said: "The UK's productivity problems are well documented and, if not addressed, will increasingly hurt the international competitiveness of UK business. As part of the response, the productivity leadership group has developed the ‘How good's your business really?' web app in order to help businesses understand how they are performing and what they can do to improve both their performance and productivity."

The HGYBR app is free to use.
