Public Health England: Measuring employee productivity – topic overview
In 2013, there were 30.19 million people in employment in the UK, reported to be the highest ever proportion of the nation with a job. The UK economy is said to be growing at its fastest
rate since 2007 and organisations are beginning to competitively grow, with their employees at the heart of this. Each employee’s individual productivity at work contributes to this, and
organisations will continue to measure the productivity of their workforce to gauge their performance and growth. But, imagine that each UK employee became 1% more productive at
work – what would this constitute? Before it is possible to consider the bearing that such an increase in workforce productivity would have, it is necessary to establish the best way to
accurately quantify productivity.
