    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?
