Imagine a United Kingdom where millions more people have a chance to earn a living. Where we have more time to look after ourselves and the ones we love. Where we can make planet Earth a little greener just by changing the way we work.


Our latest report with the Centre for Economics and Business Research shows we no longer have to imagine these things.


The pandemic accelerated digital progress by three years.


And if that pace continues?


Covid-driven digital change could add £236 billion to UK GDP by 2040, bringing huge benefits to everyone who lives and works here in the process.


Three areas of technology investment will create the bulk of this positive change:


  • Enabling new ways of working
  • Providing more digital services
  • Making better use of data

Want to know how? And what it means for you?
