Abstract

This report looks at the role productivity plays in employers’ wage-setting
decision-making in low-wage sectors. It asks how employers think about,
understand and measure productivity and what role productivity plays in
employers’ wage-setting decisions among other factors. With the National
Living Wage emerging as being of prime importance in wage-setting
decisions, the key question is: How can productivity be improved to justify
increases in wages?
