British Telecommunications plc Getting the London Ready for Games – “Race to the Line” 1. Varying Levels of Engagement Many public sector organisations are embracing the opportunity to get involved in London 2012: One in four say they are involved in London 2012, with over half (52 per cent) saying they are supplying services to the Games. Overall, 45 per cent of organisations expect to be affected by London 2012 in one way or another. A quarter do not expect to be affected by London Time to Act Organisations have been spending an average of 14 months preparing for London 2012, compared to an average of 19 months in the private sector. However, nearly four in ten are not planning to make any preparations. The majority think preparations should be done at least six months before London However, a third (33 per cent) think three months or less is enough time. In anticipation of rising demand, a third of public sector organisations with a call centre are looking at solutions to deal with an increased number of calls. Nearly half of public sector organisations (45 per cent) plan to improve flexible working facilities for staff as a way of lessening the impact of disruption. However, 30 per cent have no plans to deal with staffing disruption Involving 1,200 organisations across the private and public sectors, insight gained from the BT “Race to the Line” research suggests that if they do not act quickly, many organisations could miss out on the opportunities their peers and competitors are set to prosper from.

Service Confidence Organisations see no major concerns about maintaining productivity and service levels, but this confidence may be misplaced: Four out of five organisations are confident of maintaining service and security during London 2012, despite the fact only 27 per cent have assessed the impact of risks such as a cyber attack. For London 2012, 18 per cent of public sector organisations are looking to increase network capacity. 4. Knock-on Effects Whilst the challenges around London have been widely recognised, organisations across the country need to give thought to the potential knock-on effects: 65 per cent of organisations in the public sector believe they will experience some form of disruption to their activity as a result of London More than four in ten say that they will experience staff problems - time off or not being able to get to work, making it the most significant knock-on effect. 57 per cent of organisations are expecting supply chain disruption in some way. 5. Economic Benefits Many public sector organisations are looking forward to taking advantage of the widely predicted £1 billion uplift in UK economic output associated with the Games. 60 per cent of organisations believe London 2012 has the potential to be a catalyst for positive change in the economy if Team GB does well. 64 per cent expect to prosper as a result of London A total of 36 per cent do not expect to prosper in any way, compared to 26 per cent in the private sector. The most anticipated benefit in the public sector is increased government investment, whilst organisations are also looking forward to improvements in the quality of their services as they adapt to increased or changing patterns of demand. Only just over 20 per cent of public sector organisations believe the benefits will last more than a year, compared with 38 per cent of larger private enterprises. Half of those questioned see no legacy for their organisation beyond a year.
