This article focuses on the analysis of productivity and their relations in East Europe, primarily in Lithuania. The objective of this article is to analyse the working efficiency, or labour productivity of Lithuania companies, and to compare them on the Baltic Tiger (Baltic States) and European Union (EU) level. Industry, construction, trade and transport in Lithuania have been viewed separately. On labour productivity the company and its relationship to labour costs is directly dependent on the country's competitiveness. Wages make up the main part of labour costs.
Labour market problems in Baltic and Eastern European countries have become more and more important. When the EU labour markets opened, some EU countries were forced to face the problem of partial workforce drain to richer countries with higher wages. In Eastern European countries - the new EU member states - the labour movement into the old EU member states, where salaries are higher, has become a serious problem.
Labour productivity analysis showed that both Lithuania and the other Baltic States have successfully come out of recession.
A number of proposals to increase labour productivity for both workers and entrepreneurs have been listed in the summary.
Keywords: Lithuania, Baltic States, workforce, working efficiency, labour productivity, recession, suggestions.
