) that showed a positive impact on labor productivity. Profit-sharing In manufacturing plants with profit-sharing schemes for non-managerial workers, there was a 7% higher labor productivity shown compared with their competitors in the same field. Those with R & D (research and development) had an average 6% increase. De-clutter your workstation. Is your office table always too crowded? There could be too many documents or piles of papers sitting on your table top. Getting your table clean is one gauge you are productive. Try to finish all the papers-to-do.

One is a physical measure where the total number of cars made in a period of time is divided by the number of worker-hours spent in producing them. The other way is a monetary measure. It is the total dollar value of cars produced in a given period of time divided by the total number of worker-hours needed to assemble them. The strongest objection to measurement of knowledge worker productivity is inaccuracy of the results. This productivity measurement is very valuable as a dynamic gauge, not a static measure. What this means is that since these inaccuracies are consistent, the dynamic measure will be an accurate indicator of the relative change. Some of the productivity measurement techniques are the following. Mundel (1989) Mundel created a computer software package that evaluates productivity. In it, direct adjustments for quality are excluded as well as raw materials. This is because the result is knowledge. Here, productivity is calculated using simple O/I algorithms.
