It is surprising that the person who started the thread is silent and is not responding to the counter questions asked by the members. I presume that he is silent because he knows that many who replied to the thread are consultants engaged in the process of finding out the ways and means of increasing productivity. I also find many attacking the thread starter claiming themselves to be the number one in dealing with the subject. But will it work? I am not open for any debate but would like to share that productivity improvement is a subject which should be handled by the workers themselves. It is not confined to workers but right from the top management to the bottom level the improvement should happen in order to have an overall increase in efficiency.

In practice the basic motivating element is money and without it no other motivating factors like birth day celebration or giving honours of employee of the week/month etc will become meaningless. I have found that if you link the rewards to productivity, you will be able to better the productivity. Linking rewards to productivity does not mean that entire salary should be made variable. A portion (it should be additional to start with) should be variable pay which will be paid based on achieving a pre determined target by each employee.

I certainly agree that productivity improvement plans should consider the other factors, like automation, handling or time and motion study, improvements in materials, packing methods etc.

What Mr.Madhu said is correct. In addition to that I also share the fact that Employee's productivity is directly related to their earnings and even to the well equipped, culture and facilities to perform that duty.
