Measuring business growth: high-growth firms and their contribution to employment in the UK

Michael Anyadike-Danes, Karen Bonner, Mark Hart, Colin Mason

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

The Measuring Business Growth report is a comprehensive look at UK business growth over the past decade. It makes a powerful case that a small number of high-growth businesses are responsible for the lion's share of job creation and prosperity.
It is the counterpart to Business Growth and Innovation, which considers the wider benefits of growth businesses, their socio-economic impact, and the relationship between growth and innovation. This has significant implications for the direction of economic policy. It suggests that focusing attention on growing businesses and promoting excellence, far from being an elitist policy, gives rise to widespread job creation and prosperity.
