The Social Study 2016 – the Economic Impact of BT across the UK
This 2016 report has been produced by Regeneris Consulting. Following the acquisition of EE at the start of 2016, it shows the direct economic contribution of BT and EE combined across the English regions, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. For the period 2015/16 the total Gross Value Add (GVA) to the UK economy, combining the direct, indirect and induced impacts of our activities and spending, is estimated to be £23.1billion. BT and EE’s activity in the UK supports an estimated 259,000 FTE jobs (including indirect and induced effects). As a result of the full economic impact of BT and EE, the firms supported £1 in every £70 of GVA in the UK economy and 1 in every 95 employees working in the UK.
