  1. Productivity

    Productivity is the ratio of output to inputs in production; it is a measure of the efficiency of production. Productivity has many benefits. At the national level, productivity growth raises living standards because more real income improves people's ability to purchase goods and services, enjoy leisure, improve housing and education and contribute to social and environmental programs. Productivity growth is important to the firm because more real income means that the firm can meet its obligations to customers, suppliers, workers, shareholders, and governments, and still remain competitive or even improve its competitiveness in the market place.
