Productivity ‘from the top’
NEW HEAD of the Barbados Workers Union (BWU), Toni Moore, says while the importance of productivity in the workplace continues to be downplayed, some employers have used it as a method of exploitation.
She made the comments while delivering the feature address at a workshop for nurses, hosted by the Barbados Productivity Council, at its Baobab Tower, Warrens, St Michael headquarters yesterday.
“It is unfortunate that in Barbados even now in 2014, the message of productivity as a concept has been undermined and exploited by those who treat its relevance merely in pretentious and opportune terms,” Moore said.
“Getting everyone to understand productivity has been the mandate of the Barbados Productivity Council, but it has not been a mandate that hasn’t been met with significant challenges.”
