A productivity improvement program (“Productivity PyramidTM”) with a pay for performance program where there are company and employee goals with monthly coaching sessions should be implemented. This method raises company productivity.



A supervisor/manager/executive should brainstorm with each employee for ideas on how to improve their job, effectiveness, and productivity, rather than a top-down mandate for performance improvement. If an employee is engaged in the process, the probability of success goes up significantly.
