99 in 100 UK companies are not capitalising on the digital economy
"Just one in every 100 companies in the UK are capitalising on the digital economy – compared to 41% in Germany, according to new research.
In a study of more than 4,000 executives in 21 countries, Oxford Economics found that while European business leaders are beginning to embrace digital transformation, adoption levels vary widely by country.
Spain (22%) and Germany outpaced the global average in the study’s rankings, trailed by France (15%), Russia (3%) and the UK.
Organisations more advanced in the digital economy – referred to in the research as ‘digital winners’ – are more likely to enjoy diversity, with higher female representation at mid-level management level and slightly more women overall.”
