  • It would be interesting to divide the average salary and benefits per employee by the average net operating income per employee to see if productivity by this measure is actually rising.
  • Author's reply: Although since 2000, that ratio has moved in a tight band averaging around 38.5%, productivity by this measure is falling. 2005 marks the 4th straight year in a row that this ratio has been increasing. Mimicking the national employment trends, the average salary & benefit as a percentage of average net income per employee has been 37.7%, 38.7%, 37.4%, 38.4%, 39% and 39.8% for each of the year between 2000 and 2005.
  • What about software programs to improve employee productivity?I have tried a few for example Rescue Time, then I found http://www.timedoctor.com .Its the best software because it makes it very hard for the person to be unproductive.
