Employee productivity shows an increasingly important factor in today’s competitive business environment to sustaining business growth. It is a crucial understanding on how effectively an organization to manage employees since employee productivity is a major impact on overall organization success. Based on the article of The Edge Financial Daily by Idris (2017), Malaysia is still left out behind the productivity levels of other countries such as Singapore and South Korea even though labor productivity growth of 3.5 % for 2016 indicated as improvement compared with 3.4 % (Figure 1.1) in the previous year which the performance considered unsatisfactory. Further information by Socio Economic Research Centre (SERC) executive director Lee Heng Guie stated that the growth is unsatisfactory since the government aim is to maintain an average annual growth of 3.7% as outlined in 11th Malaysian Plan. Moreover, Lee mentioned that the labor productivity growth of Malaysia was far from satisfactory since the growth revealed 3.5 % in 2016 from 3.4% in 2015 marked as two successive years of slowing growth compared to 3.7% achieved in 2013 as stated in The Edge Financial Daily (2017). He further said that it is disappointed to see Malaysia’s productivity level still dismal compared to other most developed countries such as Singapore, South Korea and Japan. So, Malaysia has to work hard to increase productivity in order to achieve its ambition to become a high income country.
