A Bibliometric Analysis of Employee Productivity
Employee productivity is a key concept in the corporate world since it produces successful organizations. Different measures on employee productivity have been made throughout the years and employee productivity in manufacturing industries has been seen to have dropped at the quickest rate in recent years. Different perspectives have also been put forward by researchers throughout the years. Therefore, the objectives of this study are to analyse the evolution of article publications as well as the growth of academic research on the overall published employee productivity years. The bibliometric analysis was used in this study to analyse article publication trends for employee productivity studies across all time periods. Microsoft Excel, Harzing's Publish or Perish and VOSviewer software are used to analyse the bibliometric study. This research is conducted in quantitative techniques. Research on employee productivity has been widely conducted across the world and caused different ideas and gaps in certain fields. Additionally, this research filled the research gaps in employee productivity and added to the state of knowledge in that area.
