    The advancement of economies, especially in manufacturing-centric nations like Malaysia, relies heavily on cultivating a proficient workforce and enhancing labor productivity. In line with Malaysia's strategic goals outlined in the Twelfth Malaysia Plan, talent development is pivotal for inclusive economic growth. Understanding its significance, particularly in the manufacturing industry, becomes paramount given its substantial contributions to Malaysia's GDP and employment landscape. As Malaysia continues its economic trajectory, bridging the gap between talent development and productivity enhancement becomes imperative for sustaining and advancing its position in the global economy. The objective of this study is to examine the relationship between the factors which are job satisfaction, motivation, work environment and training and development with the employee productivity. The target respondents consisted of people working in the manufacturing industry in Malaysia. In total 250 samples were collected by the researcher using the questionnaire. The samples were analyzed by the statistical software SPSS. The demographic profile of respondents was analyzed. The reliability test, Pearson Correlation Analysis and Multiple Regression Analysis were carried out in this study. The findings of this study reveal that the four factors being studied have a positive direct effect on the employee productivity in Malaysia’s manufacturing industry. Job satisfaction, motivation, training and development are the top three factors that have direct effect on the employee productivity in this study.
