    The objective of this paper is to carry out a practical evaluation of employee productivity in the United Sates using a the professional data base, namely the ECS Survey on Employee Efficiency (2000/2001) conducted by Watson Wyatt, which includes the responses of 453 organizations covering 1,685,336 employees. To that end, we measure employee productivity of US organizations, differentiated by profit status, industry sector and employee size, using 42 indicators divided into three categories, that is to say, expenses, staffing and turnover ratios. Our findings reveal that new employee strengths will depend upon developing and using the kinds of information and analyzes that can keep workers, educators, employers and employee program administrators abreast or ahead of changing conditions.
