Abstract

The aim of the research is to identify characteristics, factors and tools to stimulate labor productivity in the regions of Russia under neoindustialization. This issue remains urgent due to peculiarities and spatial unevenness of Russia's social and economic development. The research methods include statistical, comparative and econometric analysis. First, we made a comparative analysis of labor productivity in Russia and countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development from 2011 to 2016. Second, we estimated inter-regional differentiation of labor productivity in Russia for 2012-2017. Third, we analyzed the factors affecting labor productivity in the regions of Russia. And finally, we identified the key methods to stimulate labor productivity in the Russian regions. The results of the study confirmed a significant lag in labor productivity in Russia from most economically developed countries. However, the country is the leader in labor intensity in 2011-2016. Interregional differentiation of labor productivity in Russia is increasing. The relative number of high-performance jobs to the greatest extent depends on the level of socio-economic development of the region and the sectoral structure of its economy. Therefore, the choice of tools to increase productivity requires a differentiated approach, taking into account the peculiarities of regional development.
