dc.description.abstract Productivity means different things to different people as they tend to focus on the dimensions and factors which are relevant to them. We have considered productivity either as a very narrow or as a philosophical concept, and consequently have not exploited its full potential. Besides resource utilization (efficiency) and output (effectiveness), productivity has been considered as working smarter rather than harder, an attitude of mind, a process of change, improving the quality of life and creating wealth, a journey without an end, and a stride towards perfection. The employee productivity trend of Ethiopian garment factories was assessed through questionnaire. While the detail analysis of employee based productivity improvement techniques was performed at the case study, Akaki garment Share Company. The required information needed to investigate the current status of Akaki garment Share Company with respect to the employee based productivity improvement techniques was collected using different techniques. The first one was questionnaires and two types of questionnaires were prepared; one for the management body and the other for the workers. The second technique was document review. The last five years annual reports and different monthly reports were revised and the necessary data was collected. The other technique was shop floor survey. The last technique was structured and unstructured interview for both the management and the workers. From the literature twenty six employee based productivity improvement techniques were identified. From which, sixteen techniques were selected to be implemented for Akaki garment share company based on the result of the analysis of collected data. The sixteen techniques were categorized in to four groups based on their similarity in application. Using the selected techniques, employee productivity improvement model was developed and the implementation procedure was proposed. For the developed model, implementation frame work was proposed for all four categories.Productivity means different things to different people as they tend to focus on the dimensions and factors which are relevant to them.
