Productivity Improvement Techniques and Strategy for the Supermarket Industry

North America, 1981

When it comes to growing your business, productivity is key. In 1981, the productivity of the supermarket industry struggled, and improvement programs were rare. When the North America Council studied ways to increase productivity, it found that one major issue was that the industry simply didn’t have a planned strategy in this area. Technology was often the immediate solution proposed, but supermarket leaders must also focus on motivating employees to complete their work more efficiently.

In the North America Council report on this subject, researchers highlight various techniques supermarket executives can employ to not only grow productivity, but also the business as a whole. Read our report below to learn how you can use these strategies in your own business.
