A productive company has lower operating costs and can sell its products or services at lower prices, bringing increased volume and profits. Employee productivity is a key to organizational success and to a country's economy. Employee productivity may be hard to measure, but it has a direct bearing on a company's profits. An employer fills his staff with productivity in mind and can get a handle on a worker's capabilities during the initial job interview. However, there are several factors on the job that help maximize what an employee does on the job. While employee compensation affects productivity, some factors may boost output without costing the company anything 1.2 Research Problem The general manager of Coca-Cola Company has noticed a move back in number of produced units during the last six months, so he proposed to make a study about the factors that may affect employees' productivity and how to enhance their capabilities to increase production volume. 2. Data Gathering 2.1 Collecting Primary Data After I have been asked by the general manager to investigate in this problem, I started to collect general and basic information about the company.

If the feedback is taken properly and required changes provide according to the need of productivity. In this project it will be discussed to find the effectiveness of this factor in employee's performance in any organization. Role of supervision or management is also a very important role in getting the success of profitability of the organization. This have a critical role as the decision making and implementation of the useful decision is the major part of the supervision and management. 3. Problem Definition 3.1 Problem Definition As a result of reviewing all the previous literature done by different researchers, it is obvious that everyone highlighted and concentrated on specific variables to see (what exactly causes and affects employee productivity). From my point of view, I have noticed six variables being more important than the other variables that are mentioned and reported in most of the studies. The six variables are employee's satisfaction, training, education level, sex, age, and technology availability. These variables may be good reasons that enable the studying of the productivity problem in the Coca Cola Company. 3.2 Problem statement Here and at this point, I am now able to define this problem of the company employee's productivity. The problem statement can be: "To what extent do employee's satisfaction, training, education level, sex, age, technology availability affect the employee productivity? " 4. Theoretical Framework 4.1 Variables Framework In order to realize the variables that are seemed to be important to this problem, these variables should be mentioned. a. The Dependent Variable In this case, there is one dependent variable which is Company Productivity .This is the variable that we is being investigated although this research. b. The Independent Variables After conducting the literature review, it is recognized that many variables are affecting productivity, but due to the increased accuracy and reduced cost, this research will concentrate on six independent variables. (1) The first variable is employee's satisfaction, (2) ...read more.


Dependent Variable: Q3 * Notice the Sig- value for political situations (Q5), advertising expenses (Q2) and sale policies (Q4) equal 0.000, 0.003 and 0.035 respectively . which are significant level < 0.05 , so this ensure the strong and significant effect of these independent variables on the sales volume. * Notice the Sig- value for price (Q1) equal 0.280 , which is significant level > 0.05 , so this ensure insignificant effect of this variable on the sales volume. * Notice the Standardized Coefficients: - Beta absolute - value for political situations equal 0.756, which is the highest value and the most variable responsible for the variation in sales volume. - Beta absolute - value for advertising expenses equal 0.256, which is the second variable responsible for the variation in sales volume. - Beta absolute - value for sale policies equal 0.174, which is the third variable responsible for the variation in sales volume. - Beta absolute - value for price equal 0.079, which is the forth variable responsible for the variation in sales volume. Part Seven: Conclusion & Recommendations In our study it became clear from SPSS analysis that we accepted the alternative hypothesis and the most two independent variables responsible for variation in sales volume are the advertising expenses and political situations, so that we recommend: * The company should concentrate on the advertising as main communication channel and construct it to fit the company goals through increasing advertising budget and determine it based on task and goal . * Test the efficiency of the advertising process and make programs to support this process. * Work to find multiple plans to deliver the goods to the consumers in the presence of Israeli checkpoints and closures. * Work on joint efforts to achieve reconciliation and ending the division between the Palestinian parties. * The government should focus on elimination of restrictions on the Palestinian economy and to allow the export of Palestinian goods through the work of international conventions. * Work to promoting domestic goods by reducing taxes and distribute it fairly. ...read more.
