Morale and productivity
MetadataShow full item record
This research establishes methodology to measure morale as a function of productivity. Relationships between morale, ability, training, and experience are linked to productivity so that managers can incentivize employee productivity more precisely. The data from this survey are effective at the individual level, but are more useful on an aggregate scale, using a theoretical regression. The survey and regression are theoretical, and provide managers valuable information about employees’ productivity and factors that affect it over time. Follow-on research should test the survey’s viability, adjust data collection procedures and the regression equation, and examine the cost-benefit analysis of modeling morale.
