Inflation, Labour Shortages and Supply Challenges

Embrace Productivity to Thrive in the Current Context

Canada’s most productive companies generate six times more sales and five times more profit per employee than their peers.

At a time when a majority of companies are managing inflation, labour shortages and supply chain issues, our survey of over 1,000 entrepreneurs shows that businesses that focus on productivity are handling these challenges much better.

They also recorded four times more earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) per employee than their peers, leading to much higher company valuations. Neglecting to invest in productivity likely means leaving money on the table, especially for business owners who plan on selling their company.
