Abstract: Based on two dimensions, contribution to labour productivity and perceived labour activity, we identify three types of perceived employee superfluity in organisations: pseudo -surplus, concealed and noticeable surplus employees. By using managerial assessment of the prevalence of surplus employees as the dependent variable, we analyse and predict its relationship with six independents variables, which are perceived contribution to labour productivity, perceived labour activity, perceived prevalence of productive labour and the three types of surplus employees in organisations. With reference to the theory of planned behaviour, we argue that senior managers tend to have more concern about labour activity (behaviour -based) than the contribution of employees to productivity (outcome -based) as a basis for assessing the prevalence of employee superfluity. We conducted a study of 246 senior managers in Hong Kong and the results support our propositions.
