HM Treasury identifies key ‘drivers’ of business performance and productivity differentials, which include skills, investment and competition. This paper presents an empirical investigation into the effects of these drivers on plant-level productivity per employee across England, Scotland and Wales in order to identify whether spatial differences in the influence of these drivers exists. Although the results offer support for the applicability of these key drivers the results also indicate that productivity differentials exist across Great Britain which require country-specific policy instruments.
