Last year our Management Agenda report was published as the UK economy nudged its way back into growth. As the banks returned to profit and quantitative easing came to an end, people were not sure whether to be cautiously optimistic or if they should brace themselves for a double dip recession. A year later, we still do not know where we stand. Every day there is a new development in the eurozone debt crisis, inflation continues to rise whilst wages stand still and growth forecasts are constantly being revised down.
As we begin 2012, organisations have become accustomed to reports forecasting a bleak economic outlook and are no longer waiting for a recovery; they are starting to look beyond efficiency and at where their future growth will come from. Over the next twelve months, many organisations will be looking for ways to stimulate growth whilst keeping
costs under tight control. Many will also need to find ways to maintain morale and well being as the conditions take a toll on their employees.
