The NPC urged the Federal Government to introduce Productivity Gain Sharing.

In order to increase worker output, the National Productivity Centre (NPC) has encouraged the Federal Government to implement the Productivity Gain Sharing (PGS) and Productivity Linked Wage System (PLWS) as well as address the casual labour syndrome. At a recent workshop in Abuja, the Director General of the Centre, Dr. Kashim Akor made the case for this and noted that Nigeria’s productivity growth rate was low when compared to other developing countries like South Africa and Botswana.

Dr. Akor did emphasize the crucial need for workers to improve their productive capacity in order to move forward with the national development, but he also said that Nigeria as a whole must embrace the knowledge economy as the only way to get the nation out of its current economic bind. Production should be given pride of place in the political system, he said, when workplaces are designed to foster excellent labour and value-added businesses may develop.

Productivity remains the major determinant of rapid economic growth.

Regardless of the industry, productivity is a crucial element that enables societies to generate employment and generate wealth through the effective and efficient use of available human and material resources, according to his argument that productivity still remains the primary determinant of rapid economic growth and development around the world. It strengthens the economy and adds to the general well-being of the populace, which translates into a higher standard of living and better quality of life.

Former governments launched a number of intervention programs to boost Nigeria’s productivity as a result of their realization of this fact. The head of the NPC emphasized that a higher comprehension of productivity by corporate leaders, government officials, and other stakeholders in the economy will promote rapid economic expansion. Using productivity knowledge, approaches, tactics, and procedures, he claimed that organizations need some kind of technical skills in order to develop their management and operational capabilities.

The Centre was created to stimulate productivity consciousness.

He made a suggestion that the Centre was established to promote and lead the productivity movement in the nation toward the achievement of higher levels of productivity in all sectors of the economy with the aim of raising the living standards of the populace. The Centre would determine productivity levels and monitor productivity trends. As Nigeria’s premier productivity organization, the Centre obviously holds a critical position in promoting socioeconomic development and growth in both the commercial and public sectors of the economy, according to Dr. Akor.

Dr. Akor spoke on promoting the use and adoption of innovative productivity improvement methods and techniques as well as providing the workforce with the necessary resources for productivity improvement are important areas of intervention. The degree to which this mandate is carried out substantially depends on each person seated among the Centre’s program officers. One’s goal is to create a network of knowledge-driven productivity experts who can address issues connected to productivity. He emphasized that the Centre was prepared to lead productivity improvement projects that would lead to an improvement in the quality and output of goods and services as part of its mission.

Some participants would end up as certified productivity consultants.

After completing the Advanced Course for Productivity Practitioners, he disclosed that some of the participants would receive certification from the Centre’s management as productivity consultants. Dr. Titilola Oshati, director of the Centre’s productivity capacity building department, said that the Centre constantly trains its staff in order to change the way that people work while repositioning organizations for higher performance. She made this statement while speaking at a workshop on improving organizational performance through productivity improvement techniques.
