Work efficiency and productivity have different meanings but they are related to each other. Some people may be efficient at work but not productive. Cambridge dictionary has a simple definition of efficiency. It means “the good use of time and energy in a way that does not waste any.” A good example of this may be when an employee or a worker from home use the eight-hour work schedule for working only not for dilly dallying or chatting with co-employees or co-workers. For company management, time is money and not to be wasted.
Productivity on the other hand, is defined by Cambridge dictionary as “the ability to do as much work as possible in a particular period.” Based on the definition, I surmise that productivity is the product or the output as a result of working. So it is more on the quantity of work while efficiency, the good use of time and doing the work correctly to prevent delay. On analysis, these two components of work go hand in hand and may be possibly attained by an individual worker depending on some environmental, social, or personal factors that may affect him.
I remember those times when I was still employed. Every year, we receive an incentive called “productivity bonus” that is exclusive of the midyear bonus which is given in the middle of the year usually in May or June. So, we feel exalted and inspired upon receiving our productivity bonus. While we celebrated, others were not happy. There is a certain computation the management follows before computing the amount of productivity bonus. If I remember right, attendance is one of the bases for the computation since an employees’ productivity depends on output, attendance will definitely affect productivity. When you have perfect attendance and you meet the quota for output of the day, you will receive the total amount of the bonus which is about the same amount of one-month salary.
