Entlassungsproduktivität

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Entlassungsproduktivität is another word used in Business Administration.

It is used to describe the situation when a company improves their productivity by reducing the size of their workforce.

Various theories exist as to how this comes about.  It may be that by making some people redundant, the others try to protect their jobs more by working harder.  On the other hand, it may be that the people who lost their jobs were, by chance, the unproductive ones holding the others back.
