ABSTRACT

The job productivity belongs to the ratios, which should be regularly monitored,
analyzed and evaluated. Generally, labour productivity defined as a ratio of output to
input, is affected by many factors, such as the sector in which the company operates, the
technology used, the number of employees and employment structure, employee
motivation, etc.
There are typically used two variables, the volume of production expressed in cash or
in-kind and an average number of personnel records for the calculation of labour
productivity. However, there are also other possible indicators measuring the
productivity of work, such as labour productivity of value added, labour capital
equipment or labour equipment of fixed asset.
The aim of the paper is to evaluate the development of labour productivity using
selected ratios in two selected mining companies engaged in surface mining, coal
production and mining of aggregates in the period 2008-2011. An assessment of the job
productivity with regard to the type of mined minerals is carried out in the contribution
as well.

Keywords: labour productivity, employment structure, average registered number of
employees, mining industry, coal mining and aggregate mining
