The heart of Australia's productivity problem

Cutting back on staff is not the answer to Australia's lagging productivity. The real problem is that while most companies have great strategies, they're rarely executed.

Over the last few years productivity has become a big issue for businesses. Since the global financial crisis, I have observed a strong tendency in placing a freeze on recruitment within many large businesses in Australia across varying industries. Quite simply many companies either stopped hiring or became very careful with welcoming new people, even to replace leaving employees.
