Growth Through People


What is Growth Through People?

Our Growth Through People campaign aims to help local firms boost productivity through improved leadership and people management skills.

Delivered by the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce with a range of partners, it includes free training sessions, workshops and events alongside research and thought leadership content.

We are pleased to confirm that the annual Growth Through People campaign will be running again in February-March 2020. Further information will be made available in due course.


Why is it important?

The Growth Through People campaign was designed by the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce’s Chamber Council, in response to a productivity gap in the West Midlands.

  • In the West Midlands Combined Authority area, GVA per head is £23,903- over £3,500 below the UK average of £27,555, leading to a £15.1bn output gap. (source)
  • At a national level, the UK’s productivity is 22.6% lower than that of the US and 26.2% lower than Germany’s. (source)

Leadership and management skills are one of the key areas businesses can invest in to improve productivity.

The GBCC has over 3200 members and we recognise that people are fundamental to each one of them. Employees are often the single largest expenditure, and asset, for a business. Through Growth Through People, we want to help local businesses learn the latest techniques, advice, guidance and view points on how to get the best of our their workforce.
