Increasing New Zealand’s wealth through workplace productivity
In this section you will find practical information to help you improve your workplace productivity.
Workplace productivity is the key to lifting New Zealand's living standards and wealth. It is about increasing the value of what we produce by working in more effective and efficient ways.
This section provides a snapshot tool to help you identify potential areas for productivity improvement in your workplace. The framework used here to identify workplace productivity improvements is based around seven productivity drivers. The drivers divide business operations into areas where workplaces should focus to improve their productivity. While many of the drivers are familiar concepts there is an emphasis on the need to align everyone in the workplace towards better performance.
There are case studies that outline lessons from New Zealand organisations who have found better, and more productive, ways of working. Once you have identified areas you and your workplace can improve on, this website provides helpful research and tools to assist you.
