CEO Message

Greetings to you.

I am Chairman NOH Kyoo Sung of Korea Productivity Center.

Productivity in Korea is in an either stagnant or declining status despite exponential investment in progress and innovation for the past decade.

Labor productivity in Korea is merely half the level in advanced countries including Norway, Denmark, the U.S. and the Netherlands, being at the lower end of 28th among 35 countries in OECD.

The growth rate of labor productivity is dropping throughout all sectors from the onset of the 2000s.

Most importantly, it is imperative for us to see a new paradigm for innovation in productivity which can transform a crisis into an opportunity in the era of transformations with the inflow of a new wave of productivity reforms at the advent of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

By initiating enhancement in industrial productivity, Korea Productivity Center will play leading roles for Korea to take off as an advance country by proactively implementing the second national initiative of productivity innovation in order to cater to its purpose of establishment to contribute to the national economic development.

We will strive to contribute to leading productivity innovation required in today's world as a front base of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

I would like to ask for your continued interest and advice to us so that all of us at Korea Productivity Center could be top-notch experts in productivity.
