The Centre for Public Service Productivity and Development became a legal entity on 11th December 2008.
The Centre admits Individuals, Private and Public Sector Organizations which subscribe to the tenets of best productivity principles, values, standards and practices in their respective organizations as a crucial factor in performance of organisations and nations. This is because increasing national productivity can raise living standards because more real income improves people's ability to purchase goods and services, enjoy leisure, improve housing and education and contribute to social and environmental programs. Productivity growth can also help businesses to be more profitable.
