Labour productivity, productivity growth drivers.

Increasing labour productivity is one of the few resources for economic growth. In the Soviet Union, additional productivity was supported by socialist competition. This political experiment proved that the ideal instruments of encouragement are the optimization of the ratio of the content of work, its remuneration, on the one hand, and spiritual needs, social expectations and preferences of workers, on the other hand. This means that additional productivity can rely on social factors… All new motivation systems have adopted these methods of ideal incentives. However, to what extent do they work now?

The presence of a higher goal and a creative element associated with the positive transformation of the world is increasingly becoming the main requirement for the workplace. What motivators does the digital generation consider most effective, how they see a professional of the 21st century?
