National Productivity Week commencesFebruary 11th, 2009 - 2:43 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Feb 11 (ANI): The National Productivity Council, under the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, will organise “National Productivity Week” from February 12 to 18.
The main theme of the productivity week for this year would be “Prosperity through Productivity”.
An overarching objective of prosperity through productivity is to examine the notion of competitiveness from the perspective of a country, a region, a business and an individual.
The roles of individual initiative, business strategy and economic development policies in maximizing productivity and ultimately prosperity calls for recasting to fully tap the dormant potentials for productivity improvement
Increasing productivity has to emerge as a new national priority, where the efforts of all converge to accelerate the process of economic growth and raise the standards of living of our people.
Our business organizations will have to improve their performance to ensure their survival and growth in a fiercely competitive world. Productivity, thus, will have to become a mass movement and to be put on the national agenda.
Productivity, though attainable through new techno-managerial practices, ultimately is dependent upon the mindset.
Workers, managers, policy makers and others should be ready and able to continuously and collectively search for innovations and work for productivity improvement, not only in each economic operation or service but also in every walk of life for all round prosperity. (ANI)
