Labour productivity (apt) is a key figure, which expresses the average labour performance (production, added value) of one employee over a given period. Important: this form of labour productivity covers only one sub-area of a company’s total productivity. Another component is, for example, the production capacity of machinery (machine efficiency or Overall Equipment Effectiveness).

Measure of labour productivity is easy to understand and calculate, but its meaning in itself is limited.
The formula does not take into account the cost of workers, machinery, work equipment and other available materials. As a result, no conclusions can be drawn regarding the causes of high or low worker productivity.
