The Productivity Toolbox is a package of training and technical assistance on productivity improvement for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). The training interventions were customized, depending on the capacity-building requirements of the client-establishments. Productivity improvement trainings are intended to instill positive work values among the workforce to improve and mainstream a culture of quality and productivity towards enterprise development and competitiveness.

Since 2010, productivity training program have expanded and evolved into more advanced and sector-focused courses to support the productivity-based pay scheme of the Two-Tiered Wage System (TTWS); and encourage more MSMEs to take the high road to productivity and competitiveness as a strategy to survive a fierce business competition.

From basic module on quality and productivity improvement, the toolbox now includes Service Quality Training Program (service-providers sector), Green My Enterprise Program (Green Productivity), ISTIV Plus (ILO’s Succeeding in Business Program), Gain-sharing Schemes, Productivity Enhancement Program for DOLE Livelihood Program beneficiaries; and technical assistance on Time and Motion Studies (output-paid based workers).
